Explore Zambia

Bored from your daily routine? Need a change from your daily grind? Or simply want to go out in the wild and breathe in what nature has to offer?

Well, we have just the solution. An opportunity to join a small group on a photographic-safari! Pump your adrenaline while tracking animals with some of Africa's top local guides, and explore the wilds of Zambia. We're offering an opportunity to join a 9 day/ 8-night hosted tour to the most breath-taking wildlife destination. Grab a friend or your partner and join us.

Zambia is home to some of the most stunning unspoiled safari sites in the world. In the heart of the continent it not only offers amazing sceneries including majestic Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi but is teaming with wildlife from the big five through to incredible bird life and plains game. This trip shows you the variety of this remarkable country beginning, rightly, with the famous Victoria Falls. Then the beautiful, yet remote, Lower Zambezi National Park. Finally, further inland, the untamed wilds of Kafue National Park. Three beautiful camps in three very different ecosystems highlighting the diversity this extraordinary country has to offer.

So as soon as you land at the Harry Mwanga Nkumbula Airport in Livingstone, your privately guided safari begins as you are privately transferred to luxurious and beautifully situated Toka Leya, located just above the Victoria Falls.

Your stay here will be two nights; highlights include a visit to the mighty Falls, one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World, an on foot exploration of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park to seek their prized and protected white rhinos, and a fun-filled sunset river cruise on the mighty Zambezi to get to know your safari companions.

The next destination is the unspoilt wilderness of the Lower Zambezi, as we settle into family-owned, Royal Zambezi Lodge. On the banks of the Zambezi it perfectly combines nature and luxurious living experiences – you'll feel at one with the wild surroundings experiencing what nature has to offer without missing out on any of life's luxuries. Tents, with king-sized beds, comfortable sofas, spacious en-suite bathrooms, plunge pools and blustering evening campfires.

We set out on our dedicated safari vehicle in search of buffalo, lion, elephants, hippos and crocodiles and exceptional wildlife, or on foot or canoe for the more adventurous seeking that exceptional eye-level safari image. Fishing, cruising and birding are all available at this beautiful location.

Our stay of three nights is guaranteed to deliver amazing photographic opportunities of some of Africa's larger species while offering beautiful birdlife.

Your last stop is a showstopper three-night stay at the elegant Shumba Camp, the most luxurious camp in unspoiled Kafue National Park in the centre of the million-hectare Busanga Plains. Shumba means lion, referring to the large prides often seen near the camp, but the full extent of Kafue's diversity will be discovered in our extensive game drives as well as our complimentary hot air balloon activity.

Join us, to break that daily grind and to get out to the wilderness and enjoy the best of Africa. This trip will not only freshen you up but also change your complete insight about how nature works. We hope that you will avail of our package and the extra benefits we are offering with the whole trip.
