Staying at three comfortable yet contrasting bush camps while walking in South Luangwa and North Luangwa National Parks, this small group trip makes the most of the prolific wildlife found along the banks of the Luangwa River.
Journalist and author Simon Barnes and Wildlife Worldwide founder Chris Breen first met in the Luangwa Valley when Chris was Simon's wildlife guide on safari. Their shared experiences from that and other trips they have done together created a close friendship that has ensued ever since.
After that first safari, Simon subsequently returned to The Valley for a much longer stay, during which he sent regular reports back to The Times, and his first novel, Rogue Lion Stories, is based on his time there. Since then - like Chris, who began his long relationship with wildlife travel in South Luangwa - he has returned at regular intervals.
Simon's book The Sacred Combe is all about special, magical places - especially the Luangwa Valley - and this trip puts the book into action with the two joining forces to reveal their passion for this area and its wildlife, an experience that is guaranteed to be both illuminating and great fun!
