Encounter elephants in ZambiaSouth Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Imagine wandering down to reception after a good night’s sleep in the African wilderness and crossing paths with an elephant on its way to pinch a couple of sweet mangoes from the surrounding trees. Well, if you join the Bushcamp’s South Luangwa Safari, run by Bench Africa, this could be your reality. As part of the six-day expedition through Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park you’ll move between two bush camps and the main Mfuwe Lodge, exploring the area with experienced local guides.

Tour numbers are kept small to allow for flexibility within the itinerary, and there are opportunities to stretch your legs on a walking safari, as well as head out on game drives in your search for wildlife. Our tip: for the best chance of an elephant encounter visit Mfuwe Lodge between late October and mid-December.

Bench Africa’s six-day expedition through Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park starts at about US$4,300 a person, twin share.
