“The walking was unique, diverse and great. This park has to be one of our favourites. The staff, management guide and scout were impeccable, attentive and very good. Overall 10/10 experience – world class. Will definitely recommend this place to others! Thank you all.”

Is the Luxury Luangwa walking trail right for you?

Consider these 3 statements below to see whether you would enjoy a luxury trail.

You love the idea of walking in the wild but your previous safari experiences in other parts of Africa have turned this incredibly exciting experience into a circular “birds and turds” stroll.

This WILL NOT be like that (although we do still love our birds!).

The idea of exploring the Luangwa on foot sounds exciting but you don’t want to miss out on the treats and delights of a holiday like good cuisine, the option to have game drives and comfortable accommodation. Its all the adventure but without the discomfort. That in our minds is what makes a luxury trail.

This a hybrid package between a traditional Luangwa camp safari and a serious walking trail – it offers the best of both worlds without being too heavily weighted in either type of Luangwa experience.

Are you looking for something with more adventure or costs a bit less?

Why not consider our primitive trail?
