Classic Zambian Safari in eastern Zambia and Victoria Falls
May - Dec
Spend your first seven days in Zambia’s iconic South Luangwa National Park. Teeming with wildlife, South Luangwa is one of the last unspoiled wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.
Begin your adventure in The Bushcamp Company’s award-winning Mfuwe Lodge sipping cocktails at the delightful open-air bar as you watch elephants walk through the lobby or receive a massage on the pool deck while watching hippos lounge in the river.
Next, enjoy four days and nights in remote, luxury bushcamps where experienced camp staff serve gourmet meals and attend to your every need. Knowledgeable guides will take you out on safari to experience the unrivaled wildlife and natural beauty of this amazing park (individual bushcamps are limited to groups of eight).
Then fly to the famous Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Spend three days and nights at a charming, world-class hotel and wander through Livingstone’s colorful outdoor markets. Swim in Devils Pool at the edge of the falls, white water raft the great Zambezi, or take a helicopter trip over the falls - just a few examples of the plethora of activities available.

You’ll spend five days in the remote bushcamps of The Bushcamp Company, where experienced staff will pamper you and expert guides will take you on walking and open-air vehicle safaris.

Your guide will then meet you in Livingstone to travel across the border into Botswana. You’ll take a boat to a private island in Namibia for an amazing 3-day fishing adventure where you’ll stay at the secluded and serene Ichingo River Lodge known for its amazing food and comfort. Spend your days fishing for the highly-prized tigerfish, African pike, tilapia, catfish or upper Zambezi yellowfish as you explore Botswana’s beautiful rivers, abundant with wildlife and world class birding.

Bring your cameras on your private guided game drives in open-air vehicles to the remotest areas of the park to find lions, leopards, elephants, wild dogs and a variety of wildlife.
Enjoy a private tour of Conservation South Luangwa and Chipembele Wildlife Education Center, organizations that work tirelessly to educate the local villagers about preserving their own natural resources and preventing poaching of the amazing animals you’ve come to see.
Next, you’ll experience three days in one of The Bushcamp Company’s luxurious bushcamps in a remote area of the national park. Friendly, skilled staff will take care of your every need while knowledgeable guides take you on safaris to view more of South Luangwa’s incredible wildlife and nature.
