On this 10 Day Zambia Safari, we take you into two of Zambia’s most beautiful and remote safari areas, namely the South Luangwa Valley and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Both offer true wilderness experiences where big game including elephant, lion, wild dog, hippo and many more species abound. We end the safari with sometime at the Victoria Falls which is a natural spectacle that you should not miss. The safari starts and ends in Johannesburg, South Africa - the regional hub for all safaris to Southern Africa. Naturally we can easily amend the itinerary to suit your specific interests if you decide you want to include other areas or spend more or less time in another.
