At Thornicroft Lodge we can offer additional activities to make your safari even more special.

Walking Safaris:

The thrill of a walking safari, which South Luangwa is justly famous for, makes it Africa's finest destination to experience wildlife up close, at eye level and in their natural habitat. (a walking safari or a combination of walking and driving safaris are only available on request during the dry season). You can arrange the walking safari with your booking or at least one day in advance, because we need to hire an additional scout for this activity. We recommend you wear good (hiking) shoes.

Price: $30 extra per person if done in combination with a morning game drive (minimum 4 persons)

Art Safari

Thornicroft Lodge is home to Art Safari several times a year as adventurous artists & photographers arrive with Art Safari director and accomplished artist Mary-Anne Bartlett. Mary-Anne runs Art Safari all over the world from Antarctica to India. South Luangwa is her favourite place for wildlife. This is a wonderful opportunity to study elephants and other animals at leisure while developing your painting skills. Spend time in the national park and also work up sketches back at our base on the banks of the great Luangwa River.
