Our signature moment in Luambe - "The Carmine Coffee"
For only a few weeks a year, Luambe is splashed with colour by Luangwa's favourite visitors - the carmine bee eaters. We offer our guests a unique way of truly appreciating how fantastic these birds are...
A gentle knock on the door awakens you as the night is starting to fade. You get dressed and head straight to the game drive vehicle waiting to go. A short drive through the cathedral mopanes takes you to a wide expansive view of the Luangwa. Here, we set off on foot across the sandbars.
SET UP FOR SUNRISE
Settling down opposite the bee-eater colony, your guide will setup your chair and pour a delicious cup of coffee (or tea) whilst you prepare your binoculars and camera. The first rays of sunlight are starting to filter through the trees behind you.
