Where is it?
Expedition guests will endeavour to seek out the elusive Sitatunga antelope and Pel's fishing owl with elephant and hippo amongst the rich river floodplains of Kasanka, and track down the Shoebill stork, probably the most sort after bird in the world, by poling through Bangweulu Swamps. A sojourn at the historic Impandala House - Stewart Gore-Browne's eccentric English manor house - on the shores of Lake Shiwa N'gandu, will include a day trip to Kapishya Hot Springs and boat trip on the lake. The trip ends with a stay in Jake and Gillie's Private House on the edge of the world-famous South Luangwa National Park, with game drives to encounter big game including leopard, lion and buffalo.
What is the best time of year to go?
The safari runs from April to October each year, during the dry season on set departure dates.
How to get there
The itinerary starts and ends in Lusaka, Zambia. There is a direct overnight flight on British Airways to Lusaka or fly via Johannesburg on South African Airways or via Nairobi on Kenya Airways.
