Ultimate Luangwa: Safari Overview

Surefoot Safaris and Lion Camp have teamed up to offer their “Ultimate Luangwa” experience. Combine the luxury and high-density wildlife viewing of Lion Camp with the unbridled thrill of tracking the big game on foot with one of Zambia’s top guides – Deb Tittle. This 8-night package will truly give every traveller the most complete South Luangwa safari experience.

“The standard of both Safaris was way beyond our expectations. Staying first at Lion Camp was perfect as it gave us time to adjust and our group had a great time riding out in Jeeps and we were all stunned at how many animals we saw (and photographed!) The walking safari brings the authenticity of real Africa much closer to  nature. On foot we all learned to understand and respect the animals around us.Our itinerary gave us the absolute best of both worlds and we would encourage others to do the same.” – Toby & Suzanne
