Return to the Wild
Return to the Wild is a ‘fly camping’ sleep out in Zambia’s renowned South Luangwa National Park. Offering guests the chance to sleep under the stars in the dry bed of the Luwi River, part of Zambia’s best wildlife habitat, this is an exciting way to leave the fripperies of modern life behind. Led by Zambia’s top guides and scouts, this is a true taste of adventure, offering total immersion in the wilderness.
Accommodation & Facilities
In the afternoon, guests set off into the bush on foot with an expert guide and tracker for an authentic wilderness experience, a private Return to the Wild sleep out. After a guided walk of two to four hours (or more depending upon guests’ wishes), a site to camp in the Luwi dry river bed will be carefully chosen by the highly experienced guide based on wildlife movements and climatic conditions.
Wildlife & Activities
Part of the pioneering spirit of this sleep out is helping to set up camp, a simple enough matter with just a bed roll and a mosquito net to organise, and a fire to light. Once this has been done, guests can enjoy a cold drink or two and help the guide cook the barbecue dinner. After an evening dining under the stars, sharing adventures and stories around the fire, and enjoying true Zambian hospitality, fall asleep to the sounds of the nocturnal bush with the magnificent African night sky as your ceiling, while the guide and scout keep watch until morning.
