Explore the best of Zambia on this comprehensive flying safari which includes time at the mighty Victoria Falls, four nights in the wildlife-prolific South Luangwa National Park and four nights in the unspoiled wilderness of the Lower Zambezi National Park. The variety of activities is second-to-none and include options of game drives, game walks, boating safaris, canoeing, fishing and birding. Many of the game experiences are exclusive sightings as well.
Day 1 - 3: Livingstone
On arrival at Livingstone you will be met and transferred to the Stanley Safari Lodge where you will spend the next three nights. Set on a hill bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and overlooking unspoilt bush, Stanley Safari Lodge is only three kilometer from the Victoria Falls. The views are splendid: the spray of the Falls in the distance, the mighty Zambezi River and on top of that yet another beautiful African sunset. From either our main garden, our infinity pool or from the privacy of your room, views are unmatched. The ten rooms are each unique, individually designed and with an eye for detail that will make sure you will enjoy your African experience to the utmost. And from every room you are able to see the spray of the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River and the African sunset. Included in your stay is a tour of the falls (park fee extra) and a visit to Mukuni Village and the Zambia & Livingstone Museum. Many other activities can be booked locally including game drives, rafting, canoeing, helicopter and microlight flights and animal interaction.
Day 4 - 5: Luangwa
This morning you are transferred to the airport for your flight to Lusaka and connecting on to Mfuwe (cost of flight not included). On arrival at Mfuwe Airport you will be met and transferred to Luangwa River Camp where you will sepnd the next two nights. On your transfer you will pass through colourful village life. The five room camp is situated opposite the Luangwa Wafwa (a game rich area of the park) in the Upper Lupande Game Management Area. It offers all the creature comforts of a camp yet with all the intimacy, tailored activities and flexible mealtimes you come to expect from a bush camp. The camp is unique with its décor of locally crafted and handmade details. The main area is elevated between 1-3 metres on wooden decks affording great views to the park and river. The swimming pool is sunk into the deck, linked by a waterfall. Depending on your arrival time you may settle in for some lunch, siesta then off on an afternoon safari activity. There is an option to turn back after sundowners or continue to see what nocturnals you can spot, returning to camp by 8 pm. Enjoy twice daily game drives with the option of an included bush walk.
Day 6 - 7: Luangwa
Depart this morning with a game drive through the park to the Nsefu sector of South Luangwa and on to Nsefu Camp for the next two nights. This will take between two to four hours depending on what you see on the way. Nsefu Camp is on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River. There are six round rondavels with luxurious en suite facilities and each room has a clear view of the river through large windows and from the new wooden verandahs. On arrival at Nsefu you will be shown to your accommodation and then lunch will be served followed by a well-deserved siesta before you set off on an afternoon safari activity. Enjoy twice daily game drives with the option of an included bush walk. The Nsefu Sector of the park has far fewer vehicles and much of the game viewing will be exclusive in nature.
Day 8 - 11: Lower Zambezi
Depart Nsefu Camp in the morning for your drive back to Mfuwe airport. Time permitting you may wish to visit the local village for a visit or make a stop at Tribal Textiles where local craftsman have formed a co-op offering high quality textile items for sale. Continue to Mfuwe Airport for your flight to Jeki in the Lower Zambezi (cost of flight not included). On arrival at Jeki you will be met and transferred to Amazi Camp for the next four nights in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park. Situated on the banks of the Ngwenya channel, the charming Amanzi Camp meaning “water” in the Indebele language, draws its inspiration from the site’s intimate position on the Zambezi. The camp consists of four luxurious safari tents, positioned on a raised wooden deck allow for game to wonder around freely. There’s also a family unit perfect for groups with young children. Overlooking a mosaic of islands that are home to a herd of elephant bulls, you’ll have nothing less than viewing pleasure from our teak sun deck and pool on the water’s edge. Over the next four days you will enjoy a range of activities including game drives, game walks, canoeing, boating safaris, fishing and birding. Over 95% of the game sightings in this area are exclusive to your vehicle which is a welcome change from many other parts of Africa.
After breakfast you will be transferred to Jeki Airport for your flight to Lusaka and onwards connection (cost of flight not included).
