Our game drives bring you close to some of the world's most magnificent wildlife so that you can experience a truly African adventure. More than that, we aim to build your knowledge of wildlife and habitat during your stay, as our guides give you wildlife knowledge during your drives.
We have comfortable safari vehicles, equipped with cushioned seats and affording you excellent views. Each drive is an adventure. Our Safari Guides are highly experienced. We firmly believe that a good safari guide enhances your whole safari experience.
Thornicroft is situated just about five minutes’ drive to the main gate of South Luangwa National Park. There's no time lost on lengthy transfers! We can take you on Morning and Afternoon/Night Drives as well as 12-hour Full Day Drives to enjoy your Safari Holiday to the fullest.
Special Interest Safaris
Please let us know if you have any special interests you would like to pursue, so that we can inform and show you as much as we can, from flowers to birds to big cats.
We can adapt to suit your needs, from morning drives, afternoon drives, night drives, walking safaris, to drives that include a bush breakfast in the park and drives into the more remote areas of the park.
Thornicroft Lodge also services birding groups. We can arrange for a specialist birding guide. Our head guide Godfrey Shawa has previous experience of leading birding safaris in Zambia and Malawi.
