At a glance

A safari for the real enthusiast and those who want to experience the true wilderness of Africa undiluted.

Start upstream from the thunderous Victoria Falls, with two nights at the luxury Royal Chundu River Lodge. From here, take a trip down to explore the ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ up close, perhaps crossing into Zimbabwe for a different perspective.

Then the real adventure begins. Take a light aircraft from Livingstone to the far west of Zambia, almost to the Angolan border, and the utterly remote Liuwa Plain National Park. Here spend four nights at King Lewanika Lodge, the only permanent camp in the 3660 km² (1440 mi²) park, open seasonally to a few lucky visitors and shared with no more than 15 other guests.

With veteran guides, explore the pristine Savannah, home to large herds of wildebeest, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, 330 species of bird and a recovering pride of lions with a fascinating story of conservation.

Lastly, enjoy four final nights at the fabulous Chongwe River Camp on the banks of the Lower Zambezi. Take to the water in canoes to see herds of crossing elephants, head out on exhilarating bush walks and game drives or simply relax at camp, reflecting on your Zambian adventure.

The mighty Victoria Falls rank as one of the most spectacular sites in all of Africa. As the mighty Zambezi river crashes over sheer cliffs onto the rocks below it sprays a cloud of water high into the air. Enjoy a variety of activities in this area (as well as the falls themselves).

No visit to Victoria Falls would be complete without a tour of the mighty falls themselves, otherwise known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning the smoke that thunders. A knowledgeable guide will take you on an unforgettable experience through the Victoria Falls rainforest, a journey that not only affords a view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World but provides a great deal of interesting facts about the geology, wildlife and history of Africa’s most famous landmark.

One of the most remote and least visited parks in Africa, Liuwa Plain is a well kept secret that offers one of the finest safari experiences even the most seasoned safari-goer could hope for.

The plains host the second biggest migration of wildebeest in Africa, some 330 species of bird, healthy cheetah, wild dog and hyena populations, as well as a small lion pride with an incredible story of conservation. Head deep into the park in an open 4X4 to get up close and personal with the game of the plain; find blue wildebeest, zebra, red lechwe, eland and tsessebe. With your guide and scout, you have the opportunity to get out of the vehicle and explore on foot.

The Lower Zambezi National Park borders Zimbabwe in the south eastern corner of Zambia. The park itself covers an area of 4092km², with most of the game concentrated on the valley floor. Huge herds of elephants, sometimes numbering up to a hundred members, are often seen at the river’s edge. Another member of the Big Five, the buffalo, also roams between the banks in vast numbers. All but inaccessible by road, it remains a remote wilderness with just a few guests.

During your time at the camp you will be able to choose from a range of activities to make the most of your stay here. You may wish to take a game drive, a fishing trip, canoe or simply take a guided walk to view the splendid scenery.
