Our night drives leave camp at 16.00hrs and return around 20.15hrs, just in time for a late three course dinner for our full-board clients. After enjoying the late afternoon light, you will stop for sundowners. Once refreshed, you will continue to search by spotlight for nocturnal animals. As soon as the sun goes down, a different set of animals appear. Large spotted genets and African civets are always a highlight, and the birders will be glad to hear that the South Luangwa National Park has an impressive Pell’s Fishing Owl population. The park is famous throughout Africa for its excellent leopard sightings, and even though none of these animals can be guaranteed, it is sometimes enough just knowing that they are around.
Our guides are accompanied by spotters on the night driving safaris. Wildlife Camp has the most experienced spotters in the area, and you’ll be amazed to see how these guys spot even chameleons at night. While morning driving safaris are often about relaxing and just watching the bush go by, night driving safaris are often filled with excitement and is not to be missed!
