4 day/3 Night Chibembe traditional walking trails safari

Chibembe, Norman Carr’s original safari area established in the 1970’s, is in the remote north-east corner of the South Luangwa National Park, overlooking the the confluence of the Chibembe and Luangwa Rivers. Arguably the best walking safari area in the South Luangwa National Park, Chibembe has 15,000 acres of unspoilt wilderness far from the madding crowds in the Mfuwe area – a rare gem in an increasingly cluttered wilderness.

The Chibembe safari experience is a blend of guided morning and afternoon walking safaris, day and night game drives or a full-day in the Nsefu Sector with a picnic lunch. Chibembe provides a traditional portered walking safari experience exploring the bush on foot in a leisurely way spending time enjoying the wildlife and landscape. Tailored entirely to the client’s wishes, the walks range from an hour to all day hikes, supported by porters. The safari includes at least one full-day game drive in the Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park en route into, or back from, Chibembe.

Chibembe Safari Camp is booked on an exclusive basis for groups of 4 to 8 people for . Whilst it is not a luxurious experience we provide ice cold drinks, ice, warm bush showers and flush loos, which meet most peoples’ expectations from a bush camp.

Whilst much has changed in Zambian tourism in the last 40 years, Chibembe’s location remains unrivalled.
