    DAY 1 – ARRIVAL

    Upon your arrival you will be picked up from the airport or your place of arrival, and taken to your accommodation for the night.

    DAYS 2 TO 5: SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

    South Luangwa National Park is a world-renowned wildlife haven. Concentrations of wildlife along the meandering Luangwa River and its lagoons are amongst the most intense in Africa. The river is teeming with hippo and crocodile and provides a lifeline for one of the greatest diversities of habitat and wildlife, supporting more than 60 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds.
    The Park is situated at the end of the Great Rift Valley and supports large populations of Thornicroft’s giraffe, herds of elephants and Cape buffaloes often several hundred strong.
    Your days will be filled with safaris. Wildlife can be observed from the camp.
    On the last day we will drive to the Kafue National Park with an overnight in Lusaka.

    DAYS 6 TO 8: KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

    Kafue National Park is the largest national park in Zambia and one of the largest parks in Africa.
    The park is named after the Kafue River.
    There is a large range of antelopes, such as puku, sitatunga, red lechwe, blue duiker, yellow-backed duiker, grysbok, oribi, impala, roan antelope, sable antelope and hartebeest. Elephants are commonly seen. Since 2005, the protected area is considered a lion ‘conservation unit’, together with South Luangwa National Park. Cheetahs are not common anywhere, but can be found throughout this park. Leopards are elusive but are frequently seen in certain areas in certain times of the year.
    Your driver and guide will take you on safari through the park. Animals are free to roam everywhere, so be sure to expect some wildlife in camp.

    DAYS 8 TO 11: LIVINGSTONE – VICTORIA FALLS

    The city of Livingstone is a tourism center and the place to be if you want to visit the famous Victoria Falls.
    The Victoria Falls are one of the biggest waterfalls in the world and a spectacle to behold. In the local language, they are called “Mosi oa Tunya” which means “Smoke That Thunders”. A tour to the waterfalls is included in this tour.
    Next to Livingstone is the Mosi oa Tunya national park, famous for its rhino. A safari in the park is included.
    Livingstone is the place to be for a lot of activities and adventure sports.

    DAYS 11 TO 13: LOWER ZAMBEZI NATIONAL PARK

    The Lower Zambezi National Park lies on the north bank of the Zambezi River in southeastern Zambia. Until 1983 when the area was declared a national park, the area was the private game reserve of Zambia’s president. This has resulted in the park being protected from mass tourism and it remains one of the few pristine wilderness areas left in Africa. On the opposite bank is Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. The whole area on both sides of the Zambezi River is a world heritage site and a massive wildlife sanctuary. The opportunities to get close to wildlife wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular.
    Safaris inside the National Park are included in your tour.
