When to visit
Track & Trail River Camp is open 12 months a year, as is the South Luangwa National Park. Although most travel guides encourage travellers to visit South Luangwa between May and November (dry season), there are many advantages to travelling in the emerald season (November to April), when the region is at its most colourful.
Why Join Us on Safari
Explore the wilderness of the Luangwa Valley. Close encounters with wildlife are a given, enjoyed from the safety of our open safari vehicles. Join us on a safari during the day, or on an exhilarating night drive, one of Luangwa’s highlights, looking for nocturnal animals. The South Luangwa National Park is famous for its leopard sightings. And more adventurous travellers can join us on a walking safari, accompanied throughout by our experienced guides.
Our safaris are a great way to discover South Luangwa’s untouched wilderness, home to over 40 different animal species, including lions, leopards, buffalos, wild dogs, zebras, elephants and giraffes. The Luangwa River has the highest density of hippos and crocodiles in the region. And with over 400 species of birds, South Luangwa is a birdwatcher’s paradise!
