Travel by 4WD, internal flight and on foot. Reasonable fitness required.
On all departures we will stay in Mfuwe Lodge for at least two nights, usually one night at the start and one night at the end. The lodge is well equipped with en suite facilities; each room has a fan, fridge, mosquito net and tea making facilities.
On the walking safari we will utilise some of the most exquisite bushcamp accommodation in all of Africa. For further information about these camps, please check out the images on our website.
Chindeni - a small camp located in the apex of an oxbow lagoon and comprising of four comfortable en suite chalets. There is a large shaded communal area that offers excellent game viewing opportunities - night and day!
Kapamba - each room has a large double-sized sunken bath with excellent views of the Kapamba River where hippos wallow close by. Again this is a small camp, comprising of just four chalets, with a well-positioned communal area and bar.
Zungulila - a unique small camp that is only accessible to visitors on foot, located at the top of a raised knoll with views out over an expansive plain. Each tent is well equipped with en suite facilities and its own private veranda, like Kapamba this camp also has a large communal area and well stocked bar.

Please note: each bushcamp only has room for 8 clients, with a mix of twin and double rooms; we therefore strongly recommend booking early to guarantee availability and the correct room type.
7 breakfasts, 8 lunches and 7 dinners included.
You should be confident in your ability to walk on undulating ground (with no footpaths) for three to four hours, twice a day at a slow pace.
Accommodation is some of the best and most comfortable that we use anywhere in the world. Rooms are well equipped and food is delicious and plentiful. This is a true Premium Adventure for those after a more traditional African safari experience.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 8 plus leader. Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Where you stay is a crucial part of a holiday, and we have gone to great lengths to find accommodation that provides extra comfort, character, convenience and value. Five-star hotels won’t feature on the agenda, but itineraries guarantee a greater degree of comfort after your day’s efforts.
In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
Special Interest: For those who have a passion for archaeology, food, flowers, languages or yoga. Solar eclipse and Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) departures and specialist conservation holidays are also included.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
