Day 3: South Luangwa National Park - South Luangwa National Park - Central

Walking is the best way to see the bush. Your experienced guides love showing you the indicators of the wild, ‘rewinding’ the action of the last few hours from just a few small give away signs. See where an elephant stopped to browse, where a leopard scratched a tree or a pangolin rolled into a ball. Accompanied by an armed game scout and taking careful note of the wind to mask any scent. There’s nothing like seeing lion tracks or the giant footprint of an elephant to make guests relish the comforts of camp. The area is home to 60 mammals and over 400 bird species, making it one of the top birding destinations in the world.

Day 4: South Luangwa National Park - South Luangwa National Park - Northern

The South Luangwa National Park is known as the home of the walking safari and all camps offer walks. Walking through big game country is a truly exciting experience and as South Luangwa led the way for guide training and licensing in Zambia the standard of guiding here is superb. Taking a scout with you, you will be able to enjoy a walk or explore further afield in the park. Enjoy a box lunch under a tree or next to a lagoon, take a siesta, or simply spend a lazy couple of hours reading a book with the fascinating animals and landscape all around you.

Spend the day exploring South Luangwa National Park with your guide. South Luangwa is Zambia's premier park. Many places are claimed to be "one of the remaining wilderness areas" or "one of the last wildlife sanctuaries" but the South Luangwa National Park can live up to all these names and more. The Luangwa Valley is vast, remote, home to both people and a truly impressive number of animals. The South Luangwa park is 9050 sq. km with the river, its tributaries and the riverine strips being the focus of the wildlife viewing. There are the diverse habitats, from huge ox bow lagoons of varying stages of maturity, woodlands, ebony groves, grassland and thickets, that host truly impressive numbers of wildlife. The birdlife is also excellent with around 450 species to be seen.

Accommodation: Nsefu Camp

Situated far in the north of the exclusive Nsefu sector in the South Luangwa National Park, is one of the historic camps of Zambia, Nsefu. Sited on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River, Nsefu has superb river views and overlooks a productive waterhole in this outstanding game-viewing area. The bar and sitting area sit snugly between a large termite mound and lagoon, making the most of the extensive wildlife that comes to the lagoon to drink. This area is thatched along with the dining area, also enjoying panoramic river views. The camp is run on solar power along with a back-up generator for cloudy days.

Day 6: South Luangwa National Park - South Luangwa National Park - Northern

Lions and leopards are often seen in the area around the camp, as are buffalo and elephant. For big game like this, you'll really need a vehicle to get up close and here in the South Luangwa, you'll have the privilege of going on game drives at night. You'll be amazed how much can be seen when you go down to the river for sundowner cocktails before leisurely driving back to camp. Bush babies in the trees stand out with their enormous eyes, puku and impala scarcely notice as vehicles pass by. Guests often see hyena and leopard in the early evenings and are able to get very close in the lodges specially designed 4 x 4 vehicles. On the open plains below the camp there are always grazing herds of antelope and of course they attract the predators that everybody wants to see.

  • Mary B. — September 22, 2017 — Africa

    Amazing trip! We saw more animals than we thought possible! The gorilla trek was amazing, and our guides Chris at Kichwas Tembo and Steven for the rest of the trip were very informative and accommodating. Loved the accommodations, especially Mountain Village Lodge, Kichwa Tembo, Kitela Lodge, and Tree Tops. Each was special in its own way. Thank you for helping us plan a trip of a lifetime!

  • Robert M — August 22, 2017 — Africa

    It was simply an amazing trip! Our guide and driver were the best. Everything went smoothly and they made life very easy for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Kensington to anyone. Hotels were unique and exceeded expectations. Thank you for the significant room upgrade at the 4 Seasons on our last night. That was a huge surprise!

  • Mike Desmarais — July 20, 2017 — Africa

    Went on a tour in Morocco with Kensington tours. We visited the cities of Casablanca, Tangier & Chefchaouen and had a wonderful time. Our guide (Mohammed Salmi) and driver (Eunice) were absolutely excellent and very professional. Mohammed was very knowledgeable regarding the cities and places we visited. Mohammed spoke very good English and was easy to talk with and a pleasure to be with for the 6 days we were in Morocco. We could not have asked for a better guide and/or driver during our time in Morocco. Our vehicle was a newer model Mercedes van that was very comfortable to be in for the long drives we had between cities, and our hotels were much better than expected.

  • Misty N — August 22, 2017 — Africa

    This was our 4th Kensington Trip (second to South Africa), I cannot say enough about Andrew Drummond and his ability to put a PERFECT trip together. I trust him completely and would plan trips with him over and over. Now looking at a trip to Peru and yes, we are talking to a professional at Kensington.

  • David S — September 08, 2017 — Africa

    This tour exceeded our expectations in all respects! Only words cannot describe the adventure.

  • Barbara Cox — August 03, 2017 — Africa

    Christine did a fabulous job planning our safari. We followed the migration from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara staying in an assortment of tented camps. We loved ALL our guides and drivers (Duncan, Waziri and Charles).

  • Edward C. — March 24, 2017 — Africa

    Our guide and driver were above and beyond our expectations.

  • Mary Ann B — March 17, 2017 — Africa

    I would definitely recommend Kensington Tours. Very well pleased with everything they provided. Accommodations were excellent as well as tour guides. Gareth at Kensington was a tremendous help in planning our trip. Thank you so much Kensington for a great trip to South Africa.

  • Elizabeth E — February 07, 2017 — Africa

    Both our guides from Rwanda to Tanzania were the best. Everything was FLAWLESS, the guides, transportation, the accommodations, the food, the safaris, etc. We actually went to the villagers home and met the kids who performed their native dance for us. It really was an emotional connection that was one of the highlights of the whole trip for us. Thanks so much for putting this all together for us!

  • Katie M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Our Kensington Tour to Tanzania was excellent. All of our accommodations were top-notch, our flights were fantastic, and every single detail was taken care of. We were extremely impressed with how welcoming and knowledgeable our guides were.
