Classic Zambia (Silver)
- In Detail
Classic Zambia safari is an eight night safari itinerary that visits two national parks with distinctly different characteristics.
The safari with your arrival into Lusaka where you connect onwards to Mfuwe, from where you transfer by safari vehicle to South Luangwa National Park. Here you will visit two safari camps, Nkwali aad Nsefu, for a total of five nights, allowing you to get a good feel for the valley and its abundant and diverse wildlife. Due to a large part of the South Luangwa being forested, leopards in particular are often sighted.
The safari finishes with a flight back to Lusaka and then eastwards crossing the escarpment and dropping down into the Lower Zambezi Valley with three nights at Old Mondoro. The Lower Zambezi National Park, sitting opposite Mana Pools in Zimbabwe sandwiched between the Zambezi River the the escarpment and is quite remote; as a result is still relatively undeveloped – its beauty lying in its pristine wilderness state.
The safari starts and ends in Lusaka, Zambia.
