At a glance

This is a trip of a lifetime for those that want to simply get away from it all and experience the natural beauty of Africa’s wilder destinations, while staying in unique, luxury accommodation.

It has been expertly designed by our African travel designers to traverse in the footsteps of Dr David Livingstone, the famous explorer who spent much of his life visiting some of the wilder and untouched areas of Africa, which are largely unchanged today.

Your adventure starts with a brief stopover in Arusha, from where you’ll make your way to Katavi National Park where you’ll fill your days with guided hikes and walking safaris – there is even the option to sleep out under the stars like Dr Livingstone himself. You’ll then spend two nights byt th turquoise waters of Lake Tanganyika and the wild forests of Mahale Mountain.

It’s then time to relax on the white, powdery beaches in Zanzibar, watching the white sails of the dhow boats gliding across the horizon. You’ll then get to experience the crashing Victoria Falls from both the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides before heading to the Lower Zambezi National Park for a final few days of epic wildlife viewing.

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.
