ZAMBIAN WALKING SAFARI                                                                                                                                

A walking safari with a trained guide is the best way to experience a true African safari, where you are able to see the little things as well as the big... track animals by following their spoor... so let us get our hiking boots out and go on a walking safari in the remote parks of Zambia.

Day One, Two & Three
Arrive at Mfuwe airstrip where your Finest Africa representative will be waiting to meet you, help you with your luggage and transfer you to your Lodge in South Luangwa National Park.
Spend the next 3 nights exploring South Luangwa National Park at Tafika Camp.
Situated immediately outside the Nsefu Sector of the South Park, Tafika offers microlight flights and mountain biking as optional extras to the excellent drives and walks of a routine day. Mkasanga Village nearby welcomes guests interested in their culture and non-materialistic way of life in the warm heart of Africa.

Day Four, Five & Six 
This morning you will take a 2 hour walk to Chikoko Walking Trails.  All luggage and supplies are portaged into the camps. Guests only need to carry their binoculars and cameras. The walking trails follow a maze of animal footpaths between camps, accompanied by a guide, an armed National Park’s scout and the tea bearer bringing up the rear.

Chikoko Walking Trails operate slightly upstream of Tafika on the West bank of the Luangwa, utilizing two exclusive bush camps named Chikoko Tree Camp and Crocodile River Camp.

David Livingstone crossed the Luangwa River in 1866 at Perekani, the crossing point used for Chikoko Trails today, and made the following note in his journal: "I will make this land better known to men that it may become one of their haunts. It is impossible to describe its luxuriance." David Livingstone, December 1866.

Daily walks normally last a leisurely 3-4 hours, with a mid morning break for tea. The terrain is fairly flat but occasionally uneven.

Day Seven, Eight, Nine & Ten
After breakfast your day will start with a 40min walk, a short canoe trip and a further 15min drive to the airstrip for your charter flight to Northern Luangwa.

You will be situated on a scenic bend of the Mwaleshi River ten kilometres from the Luangwa confluence, this is a place of peace and simplicity, contrasted with stunning wildlife action. It enriches the soul and quickens the senses.

The excitement of watching hyaenas hunting puku in front of camp, or observing huge herds of buffalo and the endemic Cookson’s wildebeest on foot, are some of the experiences that might draw you to Mwaleshi Camp, but the comfort of the en-suite rooms crafted around trees and the excellent cuisine are equally important factors to consider.

The camp manager will be your guide and host, assisted on walking safaris by an armed national parks scout. Limited access roads facilitate exploring further a field by vehicle.

A day trip to the Mwaleshi Falls upstream of the camp, has been rated by one travel writer as a top highlight in Zambia and is often possible when staying for 3 or more nights. 

Day Eleven
Enjoy breakfast and one last walk before boarding your charter flight for your journey home

Rose gold, for example, is a very "now" choice for case rolex replica uk metal. Seeing all the incredible rose gold models rolling out from everyone from Audemars Piguet to Omega, I started wondering replica watches sale what a nice dress watch of that hue would look like on my wrist. As such, the rose gold Orient Symphony FER27002B0 rolex replica looked both refined and bold when I wore it, garnering curiosity and compliments from fellow watch nerds rocking Sinns and Speedmasters. The pink index markers against the slightly rolex replica iridescent deep black dial added both legibility and an elegant look. The black accents made the Orient Symphony something I could wear rolex replica with a tux or more formal suit; that the date window is beveled in rose gold is a nice detail-oriented, luxe touch. If anything, this Orient Symphony rolex replica sale nicely recalls, say, a vintage Rolex Bombe as a design reference; however, the nicely finished 41mm case, which wears even a little bigger with the minimal dial, simple bezel, and rolex replica sale polished surfaces, felt suitable for modern tastes.
