Our Safari & Spa Wellness Packages in the heart of South Luangwa National Park!
Combining a wildlife and wellness experience to provide a complete rejuvenating Zambian Safari where private guided game viewing, escaping back to nature, cultural immersion on self-drive, plus relaxation and revitalisation are the key elements.
All our packages include a rental vehicle throughout your stay plus your fully private guided safaris in magnificent South Luangwa.
Early mornings and late afternoons are the best times to go out, but you are free to choose your own timing as long as you follow guidelines of the National Park and directions of your private guide.
Our private guided safaris leave between 06.00-20.00 hours and whether you are just the two of you wishing a very personalised and tailor made safari, or are with a group of friends and family; your Personal Touch Private Safari arrangement will suit your needs and absolutely no strangers will join you!
And what to think of not one, but two pampering sessions at the Bush-Spa?!
A relaxing holistic treatment is the ideal way to break up an exciting safari!
Game viewing can even continue at the unique Bush-Spa in South Luangwa National Park.
A range of body, skin and facial treatments are available – best enjoyed in the quiet hours between game drives, as you may not want to miss out on safari activities.
Packages offered are without accommodation, giving you the freedom to explore the various options available, ensuring an African Wellness Safari unlike any other. All packages start and finish within the main gate area of South Luangwa, so flexibility is still offered.
Indeed, an environmentally sensitive, fully private safari, combined with cultural self-drive experiences and some extensive pampering at the award winning Bush-Spa! Your senses are treated to a fusion of wilderness and simplicity as the ultimate form of luxury.
This three day Safari & Spa Experience is based on a two night, three day stay in South Luangwa.
But not to worry we can extend the package as well, as this would be the bare minimum for you to enjoy everything South Luangwa has to offer.
The expert therapists at the Bush-Spa, combined with being in the most natural of environments, promise a wellness experience that will utterly relax the body, quiet the mind and rejuvenate the spirit. Included are two days of pampering sessions which will enhance your safari experience and quest for relaxation and rejuvenation.
And last, but not least, included are all private safaris with your professional private guide, setting off at a time convenient to you and your party between 06.00-20.00 hours. Once again, no strangers on your vehicle, this is your private safari!
So, don't be rushed, have respect for the environment and enjoy!

A day of Wellness in South Luangwa
The day may start early with a wakeup call and possible tea or coffee before setting off to meet your private guide for a game drive.
There will be something new around every corner. Amazing wildlife encounters will enthral you until it is time to head back to your camp or arranged accommodation.
After leisure brunch at your own time, it is time to start the first session of your wellness experience. A 120 minutes Aqua therapy session is scheduled which includes not only a heavenly soak overlooking the hippo pond, but incorporates a body glow & touching massage treatment as well.
The late afternoon safari heads out for more wildlife action. Somewhere on route there may be a stop for sundowners so you can stretch your legs and watch the African sunset. The safari continues after dark and there is the chance of seeing nocturnal creatures.

Guided morning and afternoon drives plus 120min Spa Aqua therapy session.

After your Spa session, you will head back to your accommodation for a light lunch before meeting at a central place to hand back your vehicle and your transfer to Mfuwe Airport about 90 minutes before departure time.
Game viewing & Wellness activity:

We had a vehicle with an excellent guide, Lamec, who drove us around the park. The vehicle was fantastic, very comfortable and Lamec was amazing. He has great knowledge of the wildlife in the park, about the animals, including all the birds, and the trees. Knows the Latin names and other species within the same families. A very good listener who guided us to two wonderful leopards. Using a vehicle with a guide from Personal Touch Safaris has been an unforgettable experience.
The Bush Spa is my absolute favourite. I have done many Spa treatments in my life, but The Bush Spa brings it all together. The Spa is located in the middle of the amazing South Luangwa National Park. Driving to the Spa is already a mini gamedrive as there is a big possibility to spot elephants, giraffes, puku and many more.
The ladies at the Spa are very friendly and professional and will make sure you feel at ease right away. And then the treatment itself: these ladies know what they are doing! This is one of the best massages I ever had. All your sensess will be triggered. The smell of the lovely massage oils, the sounds of the birds and hippos chilling in the lagoon.... what more must I say?
The Bush Spa is the full experience! ❤️
.... booked for a massage at Bush Spa on my first safari day - between game drives. The hot stone massage was blissful - on an open platform, overlooking the lagoon.
Hippos, crocs and a fish eagle kept me company.
