This is your great opportunity to explore the amazing Luambe National Park during these days, and here is a list of things you can do during your stay:
Morning (5:00 am – 9:30 am) - Wake up to various birdcalls and the grunting hippo as they welcome a new day in the beautiful Luangwa Valley while enjoying a quick coffee with biscuits. Then, the early mornings are a great time for a mammal monitoring drive with the Luambe guides or ZCP (when available). Other great morning activities include anti-poaching walks, coffee with the carmine bee-eaters, or walking the camera trap circuit to check on the night’s activity!
Midday Siesta (11 am – 2 pm) - This is your time to relax! Have a rest in your tent, or grab your binoculars and spot the birdlife from under the shade of a tree. Alternatively, spend time in the main area with our team learning more about the history of the project, looking at what was caught on the camera traps, or updating the leopard family tree. A tasty lunch will be on offer at the camp before heading out for your late afternoon game drive.
Late afternoon / early evening (3 pm – 8 pm) - The late afternoon is a great time to walk the Luangwa listening to the hippos before finishing with sundowners OR heading to Chitingulu village to learn about life for the communities you live next to National Parks. Your evening will be spent relaxing in camp, with a sundowner in hand, watching the pinky sunsets over the river while listening to the antics of the hippo followed by a delicious 3-course meal in the dining area. After dinner, it is a great opportunity to listen and record the bat activity in camp for those with an interest in the smaller, more unique creatures of Luambe!
