Met on arrival into Lusaka, either via Johannesburg or via Dubai on Emirates with a scheduled flight to Mfuwe and then onwards by road into the South Luangwa National Park for a two night stay at Nsefu Camp in the heart of one of the most game rich area in Africa.
If preferred you could overnight in Lusaka – that way you arrive into Nsefu fresh, having had a good nights’ sleep.
Activities as arranged by Nsefu Camp. Nsefu, a Robin Pope property, is situated just outside the South Luangwa National Park, yet had good access into the park. The area close to the main park entrance abounds with wildlife with leopards and wild dog being particularly prevalent. Safaris tend to be in 4×4 safari vehicles which give guests a good ‘high level’ view of wildlife.
Road transfer to Mfuwe for your scheduled flight either direct or via Lusaka (day dependent) over the Zambezi Escarpment into the Lower Zambezi National Park and Chiawa Camp for a three night stay. Chiawa Camp is situated in one of the best locations in the valley, resting on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, opposite Mana Pools NP in Zimbabwe. The area is rich in wildlife especially elephants and leopard.
DAY 4 & 5
Activities as arranged by Chiawa. The variety of game activities at Chiawa is amongst the best in Africa. The hub of activities is 4×4 safari drives, but boat safaris, walking safaris, canoe trips and hides are also offered. So you can be as sedentary or active as you want to be.
Light aircraft transfer back to Lusaka in time for your flight to Kafue National Park and Shumba Camp for a three night stay in the heart of the Busanga Plains, a vast stretch of seasonal flooded plains. Shumba, meaning ‘lion’ in the local dialect is surrounded by some of the most pristine land in Zambia which teems with life not only big game such as lion and buffalo but also a high diversity of birdlife. The safari season in Zambia is short, due to the heavy rains each year but a visit during the season, between June and October – with a complimentary early morning balloon flight – will not disappoint.
DAY 7 & 8
Activities as arranged by Shumba Camp. The area surrounding Shumba is in many, but not all respects, similar to the Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Guests can explore in 4×4 safari vehicles by day or night or by boats but the later depends on the water levels in the Busanga Swamps. An early morning balloon flight over the plains is something not to be missed.
Light aircraft transfer from Kafue to Livingstone. met on arrival with a road/boat transfer to Tongabezi for two night stay in a cottage. Tongabezi is situated on the banks of the Zambezi, some 10 kms upstream of Victoria Falls, offering its guests a wonderful view into Zimbabwe.
