Once again, I return to what is my favourite 'bush camp' in the South Luangwa valley. There is no better combination than, Kakuli, Aubrey(senior guide) and Batwell(scout) to deliver close encounters whilst on walking safari but under safe guidance.
The water was high enough to traverse many of the tributaries when on boating safari and so provided excellent photo opportunities with varied wildlife and birds.
This was the emerald season at its best.
The luxury tents are well planned, plenty of space and natural light and beautifully situated overlooking the river.
The food here was excellent and all the team were very efficient at their work.
Fantastic sunsets, great game viewing and I will never forget the brunch prepared for me on top of the riverbank under the shade of an ebony tree, cooked English breakfast to order avec a 'G and T' in hand. Fantastic!
