On arrival at Lusaka International Airport, you will be met by a Robin Pope Safaris’ representative who will have a name board with your names. He/She will assist you with immigration and customs clearing then check in for your flight to Mfuwe, South Luangwa.
At Mfuwe International Airport a guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you for transfer to Luangwa River Camp, through colourful village life. The ten bedded camp is situated opposite the Luangwa Wafwa (a game rich area of the park) in the Upper Lupande Game Management Area. It offers all the creature comforts of a camp yet with all the intimacy, tailored activities and flexible mealtimes you come to expect from a bush camp. The camp is unique with its décor of locally crafted and handmade details. The main area is elevated between 1-3 metres on wooden decks affording great views to the park and river. The swimming pool is sunk into the deck, linked by a waterfall.
The next couple of days will be spend as you wish – an option is there to take a walking activity or game drive; or even both. For those with a knack for shopping can take a trip to Tribal Textiles for locally printed fabrics which are sewn into various items – perfect for souvenirs or gifts for friends and family. Perhaps a trip to Kawaza Village to experience an authentic Zambian village, interact with the locals and even sample a local meal.
After an early breakfast transfer to Mfuwe Airport for the flight to the Lower Zambezi (1 hour 30 mins) where you will be met by a member of the Kasaka staff. Kasaka River Lodge is a 22 bed luxury tented camp uniquely positioned 50ft above the Zambezi River, directly opposite Mana Pools and affording breath-taking views. Eight luxury chalets are located on either the “Tame Side” with its manicured lawns, swimming pool and native trees, or the “Wild Side”, reached by wooden walkways suspended high above the ground.
These are two full days to enjoy the mighty Zambezi River experience. Lower Zambezi is great for water based activities that include canoeing, boating and fishing with game drives and walking as a bonus, for you to choose from. You therefore have a full range of activities on offer for these two days; the choice is all yours. Tiger fishing (on a catch and release basis) is a must for keen fishermen and cultural visits to the Mugurameno village.
After breakfast and farewells, a drive through the park to the airstrip to meet the plane taking you to Livingstone via Lusaka (approximately 1.5 hours flight time). On arrival at Livingstone International Airport a representative from Stanley Safaris will meet you and transfer you to the lodge (20 mins), where you will settle into your accommodation.
