THE HUNTING AREA

The pristine Luangwa Valley, is an extension of the famous Rift Valley. Renowned for its unspoilt beauty and varied habitats supports one of Africa’s richest concentrations of wildlife. The geology is varied and embraces both escarpments and valley floor. Dry sandy riverbeds, streams and lagoons create the ideal habitat for the hunting of big game. Elevation runs from 1200 meters (4300ft.) in the hills to 450 meters (1350 ft.) at river level.

Safaris are conducted following the traditional style of walk and stalk and although we make use of fully equipped safari vehicles we adhere to the old hunting traditions, without compromising success. For bow hunters we offer makeshift blinds at selected natural waterholes with leopard and lion our speciality. Safaris are tailor-made to suite individual needs. The Luangwa riverbank offers some of the finest hunting on foot found anywhere in Africa.
