About Bush Flying
NKP Expeditions take you to remote African regions where very few travellers and pilots have ever been.
We adjust our routes on the fly, to take the best advantage of weather and conditions, which can change from day to day.
We are always ready to alter the plans, to take the best advantage of wildlife sightings and other one-of-a-kind opportunities.
Itinerary – 11 Days
Day 1 — Arrival Lusaka – Mfue
Arrival at Lusaka Intl. Airport and Air transfer to the selected Lodge in Mfue. We will reach the shore of the magnificent Luangwa River where we will start to get prepared for the expedition (set up the paramotors, preparing for your first Zambia flight). First briefing will be given while enjoying a nice dinner together.
Day 2 — Chipembele Camp – Luangwa
We will drive to Chipembele a very special place where we will start our trip. The team is waiting for us, with the canoes, and rafts ready. After lunch, we will start the journey from there, for a 10 days expedition in the wild Luangwa river. Depending on the water conditions, we will use Rafts or Canoes. First day is more a practice day, to handle the equipment and feel comfortable with the canoe/raft. We will do wild camping on sandbanks, with hippos and crocs as neighbours. With our paramotors ready, we will try to make the first evening flight.
Day 3 to 5 — Munya Camp
First morning flight. We will take off from sandbanks to explore the surrounds of the river. Luangwa is known to host 500 hippos per kilometre, and a lot of crocodiles; lions and elephants are also around, so we will witness an unbelievable spectacle all along the river journey. We will canoe the river between 40 to 60 km per day and reach Munya on the 3rd. day where we will stop in this Luxury safari bush camp. After 3 days out of reach in the bush we will appreciate the comfort of the lodge with good beds and a fantastic dinner! An evening flight, if it is possible…
Day 6 to 10 — Luangwa River
After the morning flight and breakfast we will leave Munya downstream for 5 days of navigation, flights, rapids, and Africa’s adventure! On the 10th. Day, after 500 km navigating on one of the wildest African river, we will reach the only access by road to the river at the bridge above the Luangwa. And stop the expedition in the Bridge Camp, where we will enjoy proper beds, bathroom and restaurant!
