ULTIMATE ZAMBIA

This is the Ultimate Zambian safari, incorporating small, private camps, day and night game drives and accompanied walks, all in search of some of the most diverse and prolific wildlife imaginable.
ZAMBIA, AFRICA

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

You’ll experience first-class game viewing in the pristine wilderness areas of the Lower Zambezi and Liuwa Plain National Parks – both teeming with wildlife – whilst staying in two of the country’s most luxurious camps. Highlights will include canoeing, walking, fly fishing and game drives, but you can also kick back at camp and watch as the wildlife comes to you.

And no Ultimate Zambia holiday would be complete without a visit to the mighty Victoria Falls. This itinerary will take you to stay in a secluded lodge within the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, within walking distance of the awe-inspiring cascades.

DAY 1-4

LOWER ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK

The first stop on your Ultimate tour of Zambia is the Lower Zambezi National Park. Your lodge faces an open floodplain and riverine forest that attracts plenty of wildlife throughout the dry season.

Sprawling along the northern banks of the Zambezi River, the Lower Zambezi National Park is a truly picturesque wilderness made up of oxbow lagoons, lush miombo woodland, savannah, grassland and patches of ebony and fig trees. Declared a national park in 1983, the Lower Zambezi protects a healthy population of game that includes lion, wild dog, buffalo, elephant, zebra, wildebeest and various antelope species. The river is full of hippo and crocodile, whilst the trees are a popular haunt for leopards. The park’s birdlife is equally rich – nearly 400 different species have been recorded here including eagles, kingfishers, herons, ospreys, storks and bee-eaters.

Activities within the park are varied and include bush walks, game drives, canoeing, fishing and boating along the Zambezi.
