The Chibembe

Wilderness Trails Safari

Unlike a traditional safari lodge experience, where the main game-viewing activities are vehicle-based, Chibembe’s ‘wilderness trail’ safari experience immerses guests in a total wilderness detox.  Arriving at Chibembe guests unwind in our comfortable tented camp for a night or two exploring the Chibembe Wildlife Reserve and South Luangwa National Park on short bush walks

The ‘wilderness trail’ safari starts with a morning’s walk, two to three hours, with frequent rest stops to observe the wildlife or enjoy a cup of tea, arriving at your bush camp for lunch.  Following lunch, and a siesta, a cup of tea around 3pm is followed by a circular bush walk returning to your bush camp for sundowner drinks and hot showers. Dinner around the camp fire is followed by a night in our comfortable bush camp tent, with en-suite loo and shower listening to the sounds of the wilderness.

The next morning’s bush walk explores a different area for an hour or two returning for a hearty breakfast.  Leaving camp after breakfast your bush walk of two to three hours takes you to your second bush camp where you will find your luggage in your tent. Lunch and a siesta is followed by an afternoon bush walk, or you can simply relax in camp.  Sundowners and dinner are followed by your second night in the wilderness.

Following an early morning walk and breakfast your bush walk takes you further along the Luangwa River to a shady spot where lunch has been set up for you overlooking the river.  After lunch you have the choice of walking back to Chibembe, or being driven, arriving at Chibembe in time for sundowners and your last night in our wilderness.

Norman Carr pioneered the ‘wilderness trails’ walking safari experience at Chibembe and we are proud to be restoring his vision of the true safari experience.
