Day & Night Drives
Our game drives accommodate a maximum of four guests guaranteeing unobstructed viewing and photography and enabling all guests on board to share in the knowledge and insights of our skilful guides. Night drives stop for a sundowner before dedicated spotters seek out nocturnal wildlife with a spotlight, allowing the guide to pay full attention to the safety and comfort of our guests.
Private Guided Tours
Although all game drives accommodate only four guests per vehicle, private guiding is an excellent way for specialist photographers, serious birders or families with young children to experience the bush with a little more privacy and in your own time.
Our three exclusive bush camps, Chikoko, Crocodile and Mwaleshi, offer an unparalleled walking safari experience in some of the remotest parts of the Luangwa Valley. Each camp accommodates a maximum of six guests, ensuring an intimate safari experience, tracking game on existing animal trails through wilderness that is only accessible on foot.
Sometimes a different view is required to put things in perspective. Guests looking for this perspective should experience the most exhilarating activity on offer at Tafika Camp - microlight flights piloted by the Remote Africa Safaris' owner, John Coppinger.
Mountain Bike Safaris
Mountain bike safaris are available from Tafika Camp for the more active safari goer, although rides are usually lead at a leisurely pace. John Coppinger generally leads the rides which are approximately 1½ hours in duration and cyclists often then meet up with the night drive to continue their safari by vehicle. Shorter rides can be combined with a cultural visit to the local Mkasanga Village.
From Tafika Camp, there is the opportunity for a cultural visit to Mkasanga Village where the school is supported by Remote Africa Safaris in the form of educational materials, teachers’ salaries and pupils’ scholarships. Guests are always welcomed at Mkasanga with great enthusiasm and plenty of smiles and the Mkasanga Choir delights in the opportunity to serenade visitors with the harmonies of Africa.
Remote Africa Safaris offers air travel by light aircraft between our camps in South and North Luangwa and also for transfers to and from Lusaka and Lower Zambezi. Our Cessna 210 accommodates a maximum of four guests per flight.
