After breakfast we drive through Lusaka and down the escarpment to the Zambezi valley. A visit to the Lower Zambezi Park is one of the highlights in Zambia.

The Zambezi River on the one side and the Escarpment on the other form the backdrop of our game viewing. We do game drives in the Park and boating along the river shore to watch the animals come to drink. On one of these days we will do a sunset boat cruise on the Zambezi.

South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa NP is known for its abundance of African wildlife: Thorneycroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s Gnu, Crawshay Zebra and big herds of buffalo and elephant.

Game drives along the Luangwa River often produce spectacular sightings. Hippo families can be seen in great numbers in the river, unparalleled in Africa.

During the dry season (July to October), many side channels of the river dry up, leaving the fish trapped. This attracts many different species of predators, such as the African fish eagle, jackal and hyenas.

The colourful Carmine bee-eaters are often seen perching in front of their nests in the riverbanks. You will explore the area on game drives (also night game drives) and game walks (2 activities per day, depending on availability).

Overnight in chalets at Marula Lodge or Safari Tents at Wildlife Camp or similar (2x FB).
