REMOTE FLYING IN ZAMBIA

Regarded as one of the most authentic and immersive safari destinations, Zambia is also one of the safest countries in the world. What better way to explore this wild wilderness with REMOTE AFRICA SAFARIS and RASAIR, who are now offering new routes on a seat-in rate basis as well as combinations to Shoebill Island Camp in the BANGWEULU SWAMPS.

RASAIR's Cessna 210 is based in the safari mecca - South Luangwa - at Lukuzi airstrip, only 15 minutes away from Tafika, and for 2019 we have a new seat-in-rate route and a sliding scale of rates. Flying around and booking a Zambian safari is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. SEAT-IN RATES

Stay at TAFIKA CAMP, CHIKOKO TRAILS (South Luangwa) or MWALESHI CAMP (North Luangwa) for at least 3 nights, and you have access to RASAIR seat-in rates (minimum 2 passengers) with a new sliding scale of rates for 2, 3 or 4 passengers.

NEW: Lukuzi ⇄ Lusaka seat-in rate, from US$ 570 pp/way.
 

2. CHARTERS

Convenient routes for a maximum of 4 passengers. Cut transfer time allowing for more safari time.

Charter to/from the historical Shiwa N'gandu, the hidden Bangweulu Swamps, several National Parks, including Kasanka, Kafue and Lower Zambezi, or even Zimbabwe (Mana Pools) or Malawi (Lilongwe or Likoma Island).

3. BANGWEULU PACKAGE

Visiting the Bangweulu Swamps should be on everyone's bucket list. Rare animals like the black lechwe antelope, shoebill and several other species, along with only one camp in this remote destination, make these wetlands a secret paradise.

Stay at any of REMOTE AFRICA SAFARIS' camps (from US$ 535 per night sharing) for 3 nights or more and combine with Shoebill Island Camp (from US$ 650 per night sharing). Link destinations with a RASAIR fly-in from Mwaleshi or Lukuzi airstrip, returning to Lukuzi or Mfuwe (rates from US$ 525 per person Luangwa to Bangweulu to Luangwa).

Remote Africa Safaris is as authentic as it gets. Owned and operated by the Coppinger family, we are thrilled to see their daughter Jen return home as she and her partner Nick are now based at Tafika and gradually taking over the reins from John and Carol. An impressive legacy in every way.

Botswana

WHAT WE LOVE: One of Africa's most iconic destinations, and considered one of the safest countries of Africa, Botswana is the perfect partner to our safari camps in Zambia and easily accessed into and out of Maun for brilliant combinations with Cape Town and the Winelands. The Okavango Delta is a highlight and we love the land- and water-based opportunities to discover nature and truly connect with our roots.

Mwiba Lodge

Mwiba, a secluded, sophisticated haven set among massive stone boulders, ancient coral trees and acacias, overlooking a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River, is the latest addition to the Legendary Expeditions portfolio. Set in harmony with this idyllic natural backdrop, Mwiba offers an unmatched experience in luxury adventure. This exclusive destination mixes both traditional and modern design elements, creating an inviting, sophisticated hideaway. 

The interiors artfully integrate the natural surroundings with layer upon layer of textured creams paired with suede, tans and accents of chocolate and charcoal. From the linen dressed slope-armed sofas to ornately carved wooden leg tables and cascading lighting, the ten double suites all give way to a wide-open layout where each room flows to another.  The bathroom brings the outdoors inside with traditional canvas walls accented with copper fixtures, large soaking tubs with private outside showers, all with transporting views from hardwood plank decks.

The grey slate-lined infinity-edge pool overlooks three springs where guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of a constant parade of wildlife. Vast and privately controlled, this exquisite 129,530 acre wildlife reserve is vibrantly lush with color-infused botanicals, 33 freshwater springs and a diverse array of wildlife. Game drives, bush walks and cultural excursions to the local tribe’s village are just a few of the magical experiences that begin at Mwiba, where a world of adventure awaits.
