Clap eyes on one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls – claimed to be the largest waterfall on the planet. Head out on night-time drives to search for wildlife by spotlight. Explore Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, and enjoy river safaris on pontoon boats. This 11-day safari in Zambia is packed with things to do, and it may only be the place you lay your head in the evening, but the accommodation’s pretty special, too. In fact, the whole package is something you won’t be forgetting in a long time.
Zambia, located in central Africa is one of the most spectacular countries to spot the continent’s wildlife and, arguably, one of the safest. With a diverse geography offering a range of ecosystems from lakes and rivers, plains and grasslands, the country is home to over 300 different mammals and more than 750 species of birds.
There are many different parks and routes to explore on your safari in Zambia and there is certainly not time enough in the average holiday there to see it all. This 10 day safari aims to show you some of the highlights of the country, taking you to three different locations, exposing you to some of the great diversity that Zambia has to offer.
You begin your safari in the wilderness to the east of the country, in the Luangwa Valley; a sanctuary for wildlife, where you can see many herds of elephants roaming, as well as the endemic Thornicroft giraffe and over 450 species of birds. With few other safari companies operating here, this is remote on a vast scale.
Half the size of the Luangwa Valley and lying further south in the country, is the lower Zambezi National Park, your second base. The mighty Zambezi runs through this park, against a backdrop of rugged hills. Much of the exploration here can be done on the water, spotting water-based creatures such as hippos and crocodiles from a boat. However, game drives are also an option, spotting the 50 different animal species found here, including perhaps lion sleeping in the sun and elephants crossing the river.
Finally, in the south of the country lies Livingstone, your third stop, home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world; the Victoria Falls. Lying on the Zambia / Zimbabwe border, this is where the mighty Zambezi crashes 100m down into a small gorge. There are adrenalin activities to be enjoyed (?) here, such as white water rafting or bungee jumping, as well as slightly more gentle pursuits, such as boat rides on the river, or game drives in search of the white rhino.
This is an exclusive safari for nature and wilderness lovers. You’ll be staying in exclusive accommodation and will have the option to go on walking safaris in extremely small groups, going deep into the wilderness. Whilst staying at the lodges, you have the choice of which activity you wish to pursue, be it walking, game drives or night drives. All of the accommodation is beautifully situated, so there is also time to sit back and watch a waterhole with a drink in your hand. This is an exclusive holiday, very much once in a lifetime category, so embrace the early morning starts and see as much as you can!
