Join Pui Hang in the South Luangwa National Park. Over 60 different species of mammal call this National Park their home, drawn by the diverse range of habitats from sandy seasonal river courses to the mineral-rich alluvial floodplains that stretch out to distant blue hills. Predators such as lion, leopard & wild dog stalk the smaller game, whilst primates such as yellow baboons & vervet monkeys swing through the trees. Down on the river, huge densities of elephant, hippo & crocodile enjoy the cool waters.
It is exactly this environment that we are inviting you to join Pui Hang in for a fantastic photgraphy safari that will blow your mind & fill your photographic portfolio.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of stunning wildlife of South Luangwa, in Zambia, during the South Luangwa Wildlife photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 13 night/14 day duration on a Full Board with Drinks Included, Shared basis & costs £9999per participant.
From the moment you enter the South Luangwa National Park, elephants, baboons & vervet monkeys seem to be everywhere. Antelopes, zebra & other plains game congregate on the open floodplains & grasslands along the River & its numerous tributaries that course through the Park. Large herds of buffalo roam the park, the impala is ubiquitous, the puku rarely seen outside Zambia is almost as common & there are plenty of waterbucks & bushbucks too. The endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe is indigenous to the park, as are Crawshay’s zebra & Cookson’s Wildebeest.
The South Luangwa has become one of the best places in Africa to see wild dogs, with numerous resident packs requiring large traversing areas to hunt. Night drives are renowned for sighting lion on the hunt & leopard (the density of leopards is among the highest in the world). Even rarely seen nocturnal animals like the honey badger, porcupine & civet, are often seen by spotlight.
Birdwatching is superb in the Luangwa Valley; with over 400 species of birds such as Carmine Bee-eaters, Malachite Kingfishers, Lilac-breasted Rollers, Bateleur Eagles, Saddle-billed Storks, Crowned Cranes, Pel’s Fishing Owls & Fish Eagle.
In this remote setting, free from other vehicles, sightings of leopard, elephant, hippo, lion & wild dog are not just rare experiences, but commonplace.
Throughout the photgraphy safari, you will stay in secluded, intimate camps that are listed in National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, set in glorious surroundings & can accommodate a maximum of just eight guests. Together with the warmest of hospitality, sumptuous meals & first-class guides, these carefully selected bush-camps are the perfect gateway for photographers wishing to explore the spectacular wildlife of the South Luangwa.
