Undoubtedly the best way to experience South Luangwa is to be in your own (safari) vehicle. A Luangwa self-drive exploration and guided service when needed, gives you the freedom to plan for your own interests and move at your own pace plus adds the thrill of spotting wildlife at your leisure.
Our number one tip;
Please…respect wildlife and other humans!
Like you, most people have come to South Luangwa to get away from the noisy outside world and to experience African wildlife at its ﬁnest.
Don’t interfere with wildlife either by feeding them or ask your private guide to drive too close to them.
Wildlife always has right of way in crossing the road.
So in short, kindly respect the etiquettes whilst enjoying South Luangwa National Park and surroundings.
We wish you a wonderful time in and around South Luangwa and look forward hearing about your wildlife and community stories!
Should you be interested to expand your knowledge on animals a bit, or are unsure on wildlife behaviour; we highly recommend taking a guided game drive or two to enhance your self-drive adventures.
This will give you a feel for what the animals may do, and build your confidence on what to expect when you are driving yourself through villages and game management areas.
Our professional guide will drive an open professional safari vehicle for game drives inside the National Park and you may keep the vehicle outside of his game drive hours, or you swap back to your closed 4x4 hire vehicle.
Do get in touch with us on this or read on about our mix and match safaris.
Have a fantastic time!
