Name one of the most exclusive experiences on offer in Africa? Bush Camping with professional tour guides in Zambia What is “Bush Camping”? …Walking with the best of guides, dipping deeper into the bush from the fixed camps by camping out for a couple of nights, dinner and stories around the fire, simple but delicious food… When staying at Tena Tena and Nsefu you can walk between the two for two or three days, camping on the way. This is simple camping but with that extra touch of comfort.
There are stand-up tents, mattresses on the ground, sheets, and blankets, washbasin, shared 60L bucket shower, bush loo, full bar and food service, fully serviced camp (except laundry). The walking is in one of the most lagoon-rich areas of the Luangwa and hence the game is superb.
Ideally, you would spend the night at a camp not too far off so that you can get up at sunrise and then take a morning walk as a morning activity to the first bush camp. Situated in a secluded area of the Nsefu sector the camp is simple and “bush”. Arriving in time for a leisurely lunch followed by a siesta and an afternoon walk will follow tea and then back to camp for sundowners and dinner around the campfire.
The day is spent walking in the game-rich area of the Luangwa riverine habitat, with ebony groves, many lagoons, and of course the Luangwa River itself. During your morning walk, the camp will be moved to a second site and lunch will be waiting for you on arrival, alternatively, you and your guide may decide to have a picnic lunch en route. This is a very flexible day and your guide will discuss options to suit you and any other guests.
Following a relaxed breakfast, you will walk out of camp and head towards your next lodging, stopping for tea and cake along the way and arriving in time for lunch. This day will vary depending on where you are staying overnight today. If not a nearby property then you may well walk into one of our camps in the Nsefu Sector and then be driven to onward connection.
