Our guides hold the highest possible level of certification granted by the Government of Zambia for a safari guide, and have spent a lifetime in Zambia's pristine South Luangwa Valley. 

In addition to their deep insights and experience with African wildlife and local culture, our guides are skilled storytellers with a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh.  They are excellent with children and teens as well. Give the kids -- and yourselves an adventure you will never forget!

Mikango Safari, Zambia


We named our guest house "New Dream Cottage" because of you!  Located just 7 miles outside the South Luangwa National Park, travelers, families, adventurers and people who just love animals and nature from all over the world come to Africa due to their long held dream...the dream of experiencing an authentic African safari.  HAVEN'T YOU WAITED LONG ENOUTH?  JOIN US and make your dreams come true at New Dream Mikango Safari

NEW  We recently opened our Riverbend Bush Camps, located right along the Luangwa River.  Wake up to elephants 150 feet from the camp drinking and playing in the river, and watch monkeys scamper about, with giraffes looking on, all while you sip your morning coffee. Book now for an experience you will never forget.  10% of total trip cost is due to hold your reservation, paid through Western Union (email us for more details). The rest is due upon arrival.

Guests often are surprised to discover that the best part of their African safari is not just seeing the incredible animals and the bush (we will certainly do a lot of that!), but also experiencing and learning about the lives of Africans themselves, their dreams, their struggles, their traditions and their amazing food.

Experience an authentic African safari like no other, personally led by an expert licensed Safari Guide.  You and your family will never forget the incredible experience you will share.

When to visit:   

NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME!  We are open 12 months per year. Spring, Summer and Fall are popular months to go on safari, but winter in the Luangwa River Valley provides many great opportunities to see the lush, beautiful landscape and allows for many rare animal sightings. Our 4X4 Landcruiser Safari's are possible any time of the year to accommodate your schedule. 


STEP 1)  FLY TO ZAMBIA.  There are many international flights to Zambia's capital city Lusaka (airport code LUN).

STEP 2) GETTING TO MIKANGO SAFARI IS EASY:  The best way is to book a flight directly into the nearby Mfuwe Airport (MFU), and we will pick you up.  Mfuwe Airport is a short flight from Zambia's capital city of Lusaka, and a short flight from the town of Livingstone (a must-see town, home of the incredible Victoria Falls). Many guests use Proflight to get to Mfuwe Airport.


BY BUS:  While flights are the best way to travel in Africa, they can be very expensive.

Jonda Bus Service has service from Lusaka's Intercity Bus Terminal directly to Mfuwe for around $25 USD...but it's a long trip! Check with them directly, but they typically have a 5AM daily departure from Lusaka, arriving 5PM in Mfuwe.   Jonda Bus and Shalom Bus Services operate also between Lusaka to Victoria.
