Personal Touch


Exploration is the act of searching an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it. It involves the discovery of new information. Human beings explore even when they have everything they need where they are. They are the only mammal that does this.

Rent our open Land Rover Defender 4X4 Game Viewing vehicle and take a self drive around one of the world's most impressive wilderness areas; South Luangwa National Park!
. Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of your budget self drive discovery of this magnificent area.

Still in doubt? Self-drive and guided safari tours are the most popular options within our area. They both offer different ways to see and experience the surroundings, and both have their benefits.

But which is right for you? Luckily, we live and breathe South Luangwa, so offer a tailor-made, mix and match with guided and self-drive options! You still have the freedom of a flexible itinerary, yet at certain times can experience the park without having to find wildlife yourself. You will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

For all drives into the National Park, our qualified guide will have to drive your game viewing vehicle. The National Park board implemented this rule in 2018, which is really a shame for self-drive enthusiasts, but even our very experienced safari guests (who return year after year) actually enjoy the luxury of their personal guide.Making this new rule a blessing in disguise!

This is and will remain your personal safari and there is no need to stick to set game drive hours of camps and lodges and share your vehicle with total strangers when exploring the park. As long as you stick to the opening hours of the park (between 06.00 - 20.00 hours) our guide can meet you at a time specified by you. A bonus of this latest rule is that you are able to enjoy a night safari, as you can now stay in the park later. All night safaris are escorted by our spotter with a powerful torch as well.

So if you’re considering the self-drive flexibility and some of the time wish a little input from a professional guide, read on
