Embark on a 12-day romantic adventure of the bush of South Luangwa and the beach of Lake Malawi.
South Luangwa is the best place to see wildlife in Zambia and this is where the adventure begins. For your first four nights, you will stay at Nkonzi. Nkonzi is off the grid and provides a very intimate and true safari experience.
Your next four nights will be spent at Chikunto. Situated along the iconic Luangwa River, Chikunto opened in April 2018, it is in a wonderful location for game viewing and quickly becoming renowned for its prolific wildlife.
From the bush to the beach. You will leave South Luangwa for Lake Malawi. Your time here will be split between Blue Zebra and Mumbo Island. Blue Zebra is situated on Nankoma Island and is a fantastic place to wind down for a couple of days.
To end this romantic excursion you will spend two nights at Mumbo Island, a rustic island where you can disconnect from the world for a couple of days before returning, recharged for life’s adventures.
