Discover Zambia

Discover Zambia and the highlights of the South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi Valley on this exciting game safari.

Experts have dubbed South Luangwa to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and not without reason. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and its oxbow lagoons, is among the most intense in Africa.

The Lower Zambezi National Park is still relatively undeveloped, it’s beauty lying in it’s wilderness state. The diversity of animals is not as wide as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular. The Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the Zambezi River is a massive wildlife sanctuary.

The River’s edge is overhung with a thick riverine fringe, including ebony and fig trees. Further inland is a floodplain fringed with mopane forest and interspersed with winterthorn trees and huge acacias. The hills which form the backdrop to the Park are covered in broadleaf woodland.

Come and join this safari and enjoy the wonders of Zambia!!

Best of Zambia

Be captivated by this outstanding wilderness experience in the South Luangwa, home of the ‘walking safari’. The area is widely considered one of Africa’s finest and most unspoiled wildlife reserves and it makes for an exciting contrast with the Lower Zambezi where you’ll see game from safari vehicles, get up close on foot and float gently past herds which frequent the river and its banks. Unspoilt natural beauty and abundant game make these two areas unparalleled for a wildlife adventure.

Each day enjoy a morning and afternoon game drive with sundowners and a thrilling night drive.
