Home of the Walking Safari
 
To take a walk through the African bush with an expert guide is one of the most rewarding safari experiences. And one of the very best places to do it is Zambia. The South Luangwa National Park is a huge valley with rivers and lagoons linked by walking trails. These trails aren’t manmade – they have been made over decades by the passage of thousands of elephants and other creatures!
The best time to walk is the few hours after dawn, when it’s cool and the animals are on the move. Your walk might take you between shaded lagoons, past ancient baobabs and fig trees, before you move down to the winding river. Every few moments your guide will show you some fascinating aspect of bush life - animal tracks, a termite mound, a praying mantis, a fish eagle perched imperially in a treetop. Every walk is unique. He will use his skill to keep you safe and approach animals from downwind so they are unconcerned by your presence. When you reach the river, you might sit on a log with a drink watching hippos wallowing and elephants drinking and playing.
Camps like Chamilandu and Mchenje arrange these walks in conjunction with drives by open vehicle, so each morning and afternoon you can choose what you want to do. On a drive you cover more ground and see more animals. On a walk you put a smaller area “under the microscope” focusing on the smaller things of the bush that you’d miss from a vehicle. A typical walk would last maybe three hours and cover three to five miles over mainly level ground so anyone with basic mobility can do it.
