Leads through the long-stretched Mfuwe village passing vendors, schools and the little town itself before you bend into a track road for the last 20 km.

Luangwa Wilderness Lodge, facing the river lies deep inside the National park and offers a real African bush experience.
Days 5 & 6: Depending only on solar power and purifying its own water the lodge tries to invade as little as possible with nature. Being deep in a wilderness area you still don`t have to miss comfort. The safari-style tents built on wooden platform have ensuite facilities, a small electric bulb and a little veranda. In Luambe you can best observe nocturnal animals such as leopard and servals and plenty of hippos. Activities included are a visit to the local village outside the park as well as various community projects.
