The Africa I'd always dreamed of. A personal experience from start to finish with no intrusive crowds, outstanding guides and fabulously friendly camp hosts especially Clare at Kakuli. And eating out under the stars was truly magical.

We have confidence in Mountain Kingdoms & feel in safe hands for planning the trip and in all our 7 holidays with you we have had very good service.

What an experience. In addition to countless other wildlife, I tracked seven lions on foot, watched three leopards with their kill in trees just above me, saw two giant porcupines taking an evening stroll and marvelled at hundreds of brilliant bee-eaters. And the best bit was that I didn't have to share them with anyone else; no noisy vehicles, no distractions. Just us, our superb guide and an...

Zambia is the home of the walking safari, and nowhere more so than South Luangwa National Park. This beautiful park has incredibly high game densities, few visitors and superb walking. Accompanied by legendary guides and scouts, we eschew the modern-day jeep safari, stepping back in time and into the natural landscape, walking from camp to camp to experience the pristine wilderness first-hand.

During our time in the remote Luangwa, we will follow two rivers through a variety of habitats that are home to an impressive diversity of wildlife including several species unique to the region. Travelling on foot, we will encounter numerous creatures, both great and small, as well as myriad colourful birds.

The camps we stay in are all carefully designed to have minimal impact on the environment and all pride themselves on their superb service, creative cuisine and little touches of comfort, whilst the fabulously friendly camp staff will undoubtedly make your holiday.

Our Luangwa Walking Safaris are led by the experienced, English-speaking guides based in each camp, without doubt some of the best in Africa. They are all South Luangwa National Park experts and most have grown up nearby in Mfuwe. All the guides have passed stringent exams and have excellent knowledge of the region’s bird and mammal species and the various habitats found in the park.

The quality of the guides on this walking safari will ensure that you get the most out of your safari experience, whether you’re a first timer or an old Africa hand. Our partner in Africa was winner of Best Walking Safari in Africa at the 2016 Safari Awards

Your guides may include John who has a keen eye for the small details in the bush, Julius an experienced walking guide based at Kakuli, and Lawrence, manager at Luwi Camp and an excellent bird mimic and superb raconteur..

Wonderful Zambia safari          

What an experience. In addition to countless other wildlife, I tracked seven lions on foot, watched three leopards with their kill in trees just above me, saw two giant porcupines taking an evening stroll and marvelled at hundreds of brilliant bee-eaters. And the best bit was that I didn't have to share them with anyone else; no noisy vehicles, no distractions. Just us, our superb guide and an armed scout out in the wild Zambian bush.

A safari away from the crowds          

The Africa I'd always dreamed of. A personal experience from start to finish with no intrusive crowds, outstanding guides and fabulously friendly camp hosts especially Clare at Kakuli. And eating out under the stars was truly magical.

Zambia safari          

With Mountain Kingdoms we feel we are getting a different, better holiday experience to other tourists we came across during the trip.

Good service          

We have confidence in Mountain Kingdoms & feel in safe hands for planning the trip and in all our 7 holidays with you we have had very good service.


Extend your holiday

Lower Zambezi extension, Zambia
  • Extend your time in Zambia with a stay in Lower Zambezi National Park
  • Explore Chongwe River by boat or, for the adventurous, a canoe
  • Stay at the spectacularly located Chongwe River Camp
  • Watch incredible wildlife such as elephants and hippos from the comfort of your accommodation

More Details

Extend your time in Zambia with a visit to the beautiful Lower Zambezi National Park. Whilst you can see many of the same animals seen in South Luangwa, the landscape of the Lower Zambezi is spectacular, the mountain backdrop and lush riverside colours offer a real contrast to the dry season plains of Luangwa. There is also the added attraction of being able to explore on the water itself.

We recommend staying at the pleasantly located Chongwe River Camp. Set below the impressive mountains of the Zambezi escarpment, Chongwe River Camp lies on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi Rivers. The camp has nine comfortable en suite safari tents which look out across the tranquil Chongwe River to the hills beyond, each offering superb armchair wildlife viewing. There is also a small swimming pool where you can take a refreshing swim. The picturesque setting, excellent hospitality and relaxed feel to this beautiful camp make Chongwe the perfect spot to conclude a holiday to Zambia.
