Game drives are offered both in the day and at night in specially built Toyota Land Cruisers with open tops, affording you total 360 degree vision. Bush walks are a speciality of the Luangwa Valley and walks are led by Nkwali’s passionate and knowledgeable guides and escorted by an armed National Park scout. If you are traveling during the Emerald Season, you can also explore the lagoons by boat (end of December/January through early April, water levels permitting).
A visit to Kawaza Village and the schools is often remembered years later by our guests as the most rewarding part of their visit to Africa. This gives a more holistic experience of the Luangwa Valley. Alternatively take a stroll within the community around the Mfuwe area which is bustling – small “dukas” (shops), the market, bars, and people offering various skills. Guests may also visit the Wildlife Education Centre, which is a charitable trust for the school children of the Luangwa Valley to teach them about wildlife and conservation. We highly recommend this for families traveling with children! Finally we always recommend a stop at Tribal Textiles for unique locally produced hand-painted textiles, drawing inspiration from the stunning Zambian wildlife and surroundings.
