Classic Zambia - Private Flying Safari

Zambia was one of the first countries to develop its safari activities – and with good reason, as it has some of the finest game activities in Africa, with stunning scenery, excellent accommodation and friendly people. Areas such as the South Luangwa, Victoria Falls and the Lower Zambezi make Zambia a magnet for those in search of a real African experience. This itinerary takes in them all.

Day 1

Evening flight from Heathrow airport.

Days 2-3

Arrive in Johannesburg and fly on to Livingstone, gateway to Victoria Falls. Transfer on arrival to the Royal Livingstone Hotel for a stay of 2 nights (with breakfast). Walk through the grounds to the Falls or enjoy time relaxing by the river or exploring the hotel gardens, where zebra roam freely. Further activities, available locally, include boat trips and sundowner cruises, visits to local villages and aerial tours across the Falls by helicopter or micro light (charges apply). 

Days 4-5

Fly by light aircraft into the Lower Zambezi National Park for 2 nights on safari at Royal Zambezi Lodge (full board with selected beverages and twice daily activities). Enjoy game drives by vehicle, boat trips, catch and release fishing or game viewing from the river – an excellent way to get closer to the wildlife as you drift past in a canoe. 

Days 6-7

Fly on to the South Luangwa National Park, an area renowned for its walking safaris for a 2 night stay at Mfuwe Lodge (full board with game activities). Here we recommend splitting your time between 2 properties – a lodge and a bush camp – to fully experience the park. Enjoy game drives by vehicle with excellent local guides and experience the thrill of walking in the bush and seeing the wildlife from a very different angle, surely the ultimate safari experience. It is also possible to arrange a safari where you walk between bush camps.

Days 8-10

Continue deeper into the South Luangwa Park to the remote southern sector and a prime location on the banks of the Luangwa River. Spend 3 nights at Chamilandu Bush Camp enjoying guided walks, game drives and night drives (full board with game activities).

Day 11

Return to Mfuwe for the flight to Lusaka and on to Johannesburg. Connect with the evening flight to London.

Day 12
