Your safari ends with an air transfer back to Lusaka for your outbound flight.

Zambia is one of Africa’s prime wildlife destinations and shares the mighty Zambezi River and the magnificent Victoria Falls with Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls, also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), is one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world and popular tourist destinations in Southern Africa. It is located about 60 kms downstream from the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers (where Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet).

Measuring 1,7 kms wide and 108 metres high, the spectacular Falls has a myriad of different viewpoints and is best seen from both the Zambian and Zimbabwean sides.

Although Livingstone is the most visited destination in Zambia, it is the game parks of South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi, Kafue and Liuwa Plains that make Zambia one of the top wildlife destinations in Africa.

Baines River Camp is located just outside Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia and across the river from Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. The Zambezi Valley is home to an abundance of wildlife and you will enjoy excellent game sightings on game drives in the Lower Zambezi National Park and boat cruises on the Zambezi River.

South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s prime wildlife destination. It is a beautiful park with diverse habitats that support an abundance of big and small game and is well known for its good leopard sightings and walking safaris in the dry season. Large concentration of animals can be found in and around the Luangwa River making it one of Africa’s most densely populated wildlife reserves. At Kafunta River Lodge and Three Rivers Camp you will explore this special area on game drives and on foot allowing you the opportunity to witness wild Africa at its best.
