Norman Carr Walking Safaris

The 'original safari company' - Norman Carr started walking safaris more than 60 years ago in the Luangwa Valley. Luwi, Nsolo, Kakuli and Mchenja camps are dotted along the beautiful Luwi River within walking distance of each other. We walk from camp to camp, spending a couple of nights in each camp to explore and experience the unique wonders of each area.

Country

Zambia

The thrill of tracking lions through early morning mists and exploring a wilderness unchanged for millennia is not to be missed.These camps are truly wild but still supremely comfortable.

Need to Know
