Depart Old Mondoro and fly via Lusaka to Mfuwe, gateway to the Luangwa. There you are met and transferred to Kaingo Camp, located deep in the park. The South Luangwa National Park is situated in Zambia’s renowned Luangwa Valley, which is at the tail end of the Great Rift Valley. This 9050km² area is one of the most accessible and popular parks in Zambia, with the concentration of game around the river being of the highest in Africa. The region is known for its walking safaris, which were pioneered in this park and are still one of the best ways of experiencing the true African wilderness. The survival of the valley depends on the winding Luangwa River, which is one of the most intact major river systems in Africa and the life blood of the park, supporting large herds of elephant and buffalo, among 60 animal species and 400 different bird species.
The game rich area combined with expert guides, specially trained in lighting and photographic positioning, and the photographic hides means spectacular photos are practically guaranteed. These camps have always been the operation of choice for professional photographers and filmmakers. Many of the documentaries you’ll see today on National Geographic Channel have been filmed in this area and using the hides for these camps. Both of your camps pay special attention to your photographic experience by providing all guests with bean bags, dust covers for your camera gear and of course access to their world renown photographic hides.
