Zambian Safari

Zambia is an African gem filled with fantastic wildlife and beautiful scenery: vast savannahs, forests, undulating hills, lakes and water falls. The Zambezi River supports an immense amount of bird and wildlife as well as being the source of the magnificent Victoria Falls. We travel down the river on a two day canoe safari, the perfect way to experience the tranquility of this important river. We have game drives in the remote Kafue National Park, home to a magnificent array of game and bird life, and a walking safari by Victoria Falls. A boat trip to Kafue Gorges and a sunset cruise on Lake Kariba ensure that this is a fun and varied itinerary. There is also the opportunity to enjoy the exhilarating activities on offer by the Falls or cross the border to Botswana's impressive Chobe N.P.

Zambian Adventure Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Zambezi River    

Following the arrival of the group flight, we leave Lusaka for the banks of the Zambezi river, around a 3-hour drive. We have time to relax this evening at our camp.


Day 2: Zambezi River    

This morning we will meet our team who will be accompanying us along the Zambezi in our 2 man Canadian style canoes. Following an introduction and safety talk we travel for an hour through local villages and across Kafue River by ferry to our preferred start point. After setting off, we soon feel a world away from daily life as the sights and sounds of the wildlife that inhabits the waters' edge surround us. Early starts may be necessary to avoid the heat of the day and well earned lunch breaks are taken in the shade on the river banks. The first night we camp on the banks of the Zambezi and our guides prepare dinner. On the afternoon of day 3 we return to the main camp by road.


Day 3: Zambezi River    

See day 2 for Itinerary


Day 4: Siansowa Peninsula    

Today we leave our canoes behind and travel once again on dry land. We travel to the Siansowa peninsular by Lake Kariba. We will set off early as we have a long journey ahead. Our drive takes us up the escarpment from Chirundu and we stop to shop in Mazabuka. Following our shop we head down to the lake. (journey 450km.) This evening we take to the water once again for an evening cruise on the lake. We can expect to see game and bird life as the water's edge comes to life as the sun sets.


Day 5: Siansowa Peninsula    

There are two activities included today: a guided game walk in the mainland nature reserve and a game cruise on the lake. The area is home to numerous bird species: the Bat hawk, Snake eagle and the African Fish Eagle to name but a few. There is also the chance to see game on foot, an exhilarating experience. This afternoon there will also be an optional visit to a crocodile farm.


Day 6: Livingstone    

We travel to Livingstone today, stopping at the small museum at Choma en route. There is time to visit the ever-impressive Victoria Falls in the afternoon.


Day 7: Livingstone    

Today there is time to take advantage of the many optional activities available around Livingstone and on the Zambezi River including white water rafting, elephant back safari or even a day trip across the border to Botswana's Chobe National Park, home to an impressive amount of game.


Day 8: Mosi o Tunya N.P    

Mosi O Tunya National Park stretches along the Upper Zambezi for 12km. Being a relatively small park, we should be able to see a variety of wildlife in a relatively short period of time on our morning walking safari, including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, antelope and hopefully rhino. We later travel to Mabula Ranch, visiting the Eland sanctuary there.


Day 9: Kafue Gorges    

This morning we travel by road to the Kafue River. On arrival we get in to our boat, gather our camping equipment and then cruise down river to the beginning of Kafue Gorge. The boat journey is relaxing and scenic. After time at the gorge we head to our campsite on the southern bank. The facilities at our camp are basic but it's a great site, incredibly quiet with some amazing birdlife.


Day 10: Lusaka    

After packing up our camp, there is time for an optional walk. We then travel in our overland vehicle to Lusaka. We will have some free time in Lusaka to shop or relax.


Day 11: Kafue N.P    

Early start to Kafue N.P.; afternoon game drive.


Day 12: Kafue N.P    

We depart Lusaka early in the morning for Kafue National Park, Zambia’s oldest and largest National Park. The infrastructure is still developing in the park, offering a real slice of African wilderness. It will take around 3 ½ hours to reach the park gates. On entering the park we game drive to our campsite on the banks of the Lufupa River. This evening we will go on a night drive by 4WD. The following day we will go on a morning game drive and the afternoon will be kept free for an optional boat trip on the river and there is a lovely deck to sit and watch the river and birdlife.


Day 13: Lusaka    

Today we return to the capital and spend the night at our camp just south of Lusaka, situated on a private game farm.


Day 14: Lusaka    

End Lusaka
