Activities in Zambia Travel
You can go on a morning and Night Game Drive in the South Luangwa National Park, when you travel to Zambia. You can also opt for a full-day drive in a far remote surroundings. The morning safari starts around 06.00, just after a light breakfast at sunrise for around 4 hours. In the afternoon, our professional guide will take you into the park at 16.00 with a spotter who will use a powerful spotlight after sunset to locate nocturnal animals. After the sun-downer, we’ll continue the Night Safari with the spotlight. Our expert spotter can tell what kind of animal we are dealing with by the eye’s colour, blinking, or height from the ground up. If we’re lucky, we might witness a hunt too, or at the least the pride of lions on the prowl. All game drives are conducted in open safari vehicles to fully experience the surroundings. More adventurous, and above 12 years old can take part in Walking Safari for which South Luangwa is famous in whole Africa.
