Luangwa Chikoko Trails

Walking Safari | On foot in Zambia

Unfolding in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, a Chikoko Trails safari is a unique walking experience in one of the richest wildlife areas in the world. Hiking expeditions take you between two camps, accessible only by foot, following well-worn elephant and hippo trails. With pulses racing you’ll discover the inner workings of the African bush in a way you could never imagine from a vehicle.

In the Footsteps of Dr Livingstone

Inspiration Itinerary | Zambia's wildest reaches

Inspired by Dr Livingstone’s intrepid explorations in 1852, when he began a four year expedition to find a route from the upper Zambezi to the Indian Ocean coastline, this itinerary begins in the Upper Zambezi and follows the course of the river to the Lower Zambezi, then finishes in the South Luangwa National Park - arguably the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa and the birthplace of the walking safari.

Zambezi with Tusk & Mane

Inspiration Itinerary | Zambia's Ultimate Camp Out

This is an experience that takes you back in time to those legendary “Hemingway” escapades in a part of Africa that will reconnect you with nature and replenish your senses. The primary focus of a Tusk & Mane safari is the wilderness itself as it unfolds around you, unscripted and in full glory.

Robin Pope Walking Safari

Set Departure | Zambia's Luangwa on Foot

The Robin Pope Safaris' Mobile Walking Safari has long been known as the best wilderness experience of Zambia, if not the entire African continent. The area is remote and wild, the terrain and habitats varied and the game unused to people offering a real connection with the bush through the soles of your feet.

Remote Zambia

Inspiration Itinerary | Luangwa Valley Wilderness

Remove yourself completely from the fast pace of modern life over seven nights combining the north and southern wilderness parks of the Luangwa Valley. Adjust your pace to the Luangwa River’s natural rhythm and enjoy a wide array of experiences ranging from walking safaris along natural hippo trails to indulging on freshly baked goods produced using local skills and techniques.
