Our 5-Day Zambia Safari takes you to just two of Zambia’s many highlights. The first stop is the Victoria Falls which is a must-see if you have come all the way to this part of Africa. From here we visit the Lower Zambezi National Park, a wildlife region in the southeast part of the country.

Home to big trees, big game and beautiful big blue skies, the Lower Zambezi never fails to enchant an African traveller. The safari includes flights both regionally (from and back to Johannesburg) and of course the internal light aircraft transfers needed to join the two regions. We can amend this itinerary to lengthen or add in other areas should you wish.
