Tips

Day 1

Lusaka

Arrival in Lusaka . Transfer to the lodge, overnight in Chalets at a comfortable Lodge close to Lusaka (-/-/-)

Day 2 and 3

Chunga (central Kafue National Park)

We drive through pristine Miombo forest to Chunga.  Several small rivers cross this area. These leave a number of waterholes in the dry season for the animals to quench their thirst. Wild dogs, which roam large areas of the park, cheetah and lion are among the inhabitants here.  Camping on the banks of the Kafue River.(2x FB)

Day 4

Mongu

On the way to the east we will arrive in Mongu, our stop over at the edge of the Barotse floodplains. Here we have the possibility to stock up for the next few days in Liuwa. Camping on the edge of the Barotse Plains. (FB)

Day 5, 6, 7 and 8

Liuwa Plains National Park

There are few roads in Liuwa Plain National Park. That, however, is part of the park’s attraction: around 3660km² of untouched Africa. Most of this is a vast honey-coloured plain of grass, with just the occasional water pan, islands of raffia palms or a small tree-belt interrupting the scenery.

Thousands of wildebeest (estimated at close to 50,000), with zebra, tsessebe and buffalo, group together, joining the more static resident roan antelope, red lechwe and reedbuck. The open plains are particularly good for oribi antelope. With all these come the predators: hyena, wild dog and lion can be spotted. End of October thousands of wildebeest will gather in the plains. Camping in the bush (running water, showers and flush toilets are present). (4x FB)

Day 9

Ngonye Waterfalls

We follow the course of the Zambezi river up to the beautiful Ngonye Falls, not as mighty as the “big brother further south, but equally impressive. The Zambezi spreads into several channels and the masses of water find their way through the basalt rock formations.  We will hike around the area and also do a short boat trip to explore this beautiful landscape. Camping near the river. (FB)

Day 10

Livingstone

Drive along the Zambezi River to Livingstone. Whether adventure or relaxation: there is a lot of activities on offer in Livingstone. Accommodation in chalets or comfortable safari tents. (B/L/-)
