Game drives take place every morning and afternoon and are accompanied by Kafunta’s qualified safari guides. During these safari activities we take you through the South Luangwa National Park in open 4×4 vehicles, where you are able to observe indigenous mammals and birds of Zambia as well as migrant birds.
The morning safari starts at sunrise after a light breakfast. In the briskness of the morning with its special light you are able to observe the abundance of wildlife of the South Luangwa National Park. During the safari we stop for a short tea-break and return to the lodge for a delicious brunch around 10:30 o’clock.
The walking safaris are a great opportunity to be at one with nature. Our qualified and highly experienced safari guides and armed national park rangers will escort you safely into the true and unspoilt African bush during these safari activities. The Luangwa Valley is one of the few places in Africa where it is possible to walk amongst wildlife, which allows you to fully immerse yourself in African impressions, smells and sounds.
During this activity our guides provide you with detailed explanations of spoors, vegetation and the ecology in general – an unmatched wildlife experience that will leave you with lifelong memories.
Our night drives provide the unique opportunity to see a great variety of nocturnal animals and the chance to see lions and leopards as well as other predators in their time of activity and with a bit of luck you might even experience the big cats hunting. The safari starts in the late afternoon and we stop half way through for sundowners while watching the magnificent African sunset, continuing the safari after dusk to see what the night has to offer us.
The night drives are accompanied by our experienced safari guides and spotters, who are skilled in finding a great variety of nocturnal game with the powerful spotlight. We return to the lodge around 20:00 for dinner where you will be able to regale everyone with the day’s events.
