Day 1 : Arrival / South Luangwa National Park

Guests are met on arrival at Johannesburg’s O R Tambo International Airport and assisted in transferring to their flight to Lusaka. From Lusaka, guests board a domestic flight to Mfuwe, where they are collected and transported to the famous South Luangwa National Park safari area. The luxurious safari tents at the four star Tena Tena camp have been constructed under a dense copse of mahogany trees. Each tent overlooks the fertile Luangwa River for which the park is named - a life-sustaining waterway that draws remarkable concentrations of wildlife to its shores.
