Zambia private safari in South Luangwa
Description of Zambia private safari in South Luangwa
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe are deeply committed to preserving the valuable ecosystems of the Luangwa Valley and the rich diversity of fauna and flora that depends on these ecosystems. We also recognise the international importance of these ecosystems and resolve that our presence here is solely a force for good. South Luangwa supports a stunning diversity of mammal, plant and birdlife, including internationally significant populations of lion, leopard, wild dog and bush elephant, as well as puku, buffalo, hartebeest and many other species. South Luangwa is also home to several sub-species that are not found outside of the Luangwa Valley, including Thornicroft's giraffe, Crawshay's zebra and Cookson's wildebeest. With this in mind, we will never do anything to damage the ecosystem or cause distress to the wildlife here. In line with the park rules in South Luangwa, we will never drive off-road here. We will also never attend a sighting when we believe it is too crowded, nor will we remain at a sighting when we believe our presence is causing distress to the animal we are viewing. We will never pursue an animal that has chosen to move away from us. This itinerary includes several night drives, and we will never spotlight a diurnal animal. We will never spotlight a young, injured or otherwise vulnerable animal.
South Luangwa is prone to extended periods of drought. We therefore ask that guests are very careful about their use of water, and we ask that guests consider limiting their use of water (e.g. the length of showers) during their stay. In line with our policy on protecting the environment, we also ask that guests refrain from using single-use plastics during their stay.
PeopleIt is crucial to the long-term viability of ecotourism that our visits deliver genuine, tangible and long-lasting benefits to local people and the communities of which they are a part. When done properly, this will ensure that local communities are able to attach value to wildlife and ecosystems that support them, which in turns greatly enhances the probability that these ecosystems will be better protected in the long-run. With all of this in mind, we insist that suppliers throughout this tour employ Zambian people. As such, guests should expect drivers, guides, cooks and housekeeping staff to be Zambian.
We ask clients to be deeply respectful of local people, their culture and their traditions during this stay, In particular, we ask clients to refrain from photographing people without their consent. We also ask that clients are mindful that park rules prohibit drivers from leaving the road, even if it would mean you getting a better view of wildlife - please do not abuse local staff simply for following park rules, even if other guides and drivers are flouting these rules. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards this behaviour.
