Overview

Our South Luangwa Birding & Big Game Extension visits this teeming reserve in eastern Zambia, famous for its magnificent game diversity and incredibly rich birdlife. We will be spending three nights in this magnificent National Park and will work the network of roads, by means of a custom-designed open-back safari vehicle, in an attempt to locate as many of the mammals and birds that inhabit this vast wilderness. Should it tickle your fancy, Luangwa National Park also offers some of the best guided walking safaris in the world allowing a far more intimate safari experience with completely safe on-foot interactions with wild Elephants and other animals.

Daniel Danckwerts was a delight; we very much enjoyed being with him. His bird skills are excellent and he does a good job getting people "on the bird." He was consistently pleasant, polite and upbeat. A highlight of the trip was the visit to his family's farm and meeting his family.

Greg de Klerk could not have done more, he was very good particularly when I lost my luggage and I just couldn’t make a lot of decisions that needed to be made particularly in the limited time available for shopping and he helped me through that.

I enjoyed the trip… a nice mix of birds and other animals. Greg de Klerk did a great job. I hope there will be another trip that I can travel with him.

Greg is an excellent birder and worked hard to find as many species as possible, and also to make sure that everyone saw them. He was very genial company and took great care of everyone.

Sonya and I really appreciate all of your hard work….that truly was one of our trips of a lifetime. And that is saying something since that bar is constantly getting raised by all of our travel. Rockjumper can definitely count us in as repeat guests and I would count it as good fortune if you were our guide again.
