The Hyena Safari
An Epic 14 Day Camping Adventure
This safari brings you to the beautiful north western part of Zambia. This remote area is seldom visited and offers some of the best hyena sightings in the whole of Africa along with the largest wildebeest migration in southern Africa.
Witness this spectacle as the wildebeest move from Angola to Liuwa Plains of Zambia. Along the way you'll follow the Zambezi River as you travel through villages and experience the beautiful landscapes of Zambia. You can choose to extend your safari and continue the journey to Botswana's Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve.
We offer only one departure date a year for this unique safari:
Nov 14-27, 2020 (14 days)
Nov 14-Dec 1, 2020 (18 days)
Minimum of 6 guests to guarantee departure.
The Hyena Safari is a "participation mobile camping safari" because guests "participate" by setting up their own tent, carrying their luggage from the vehicle to the tent, and sleeping on a mattress pad (not a bed or cot). The safari runs with one vehicle and a trailer to haul all the supplies as you move from camp to camp. Many guests will also pitch in with the cooking, though this is not required. Each safari is accompanied by a professional guide and a camp assistant who will ensure your safari is safe, educational, and fun.
