Days 1 – 4: A New Frontier
Leaving Lusaka’s airport behind you, the excitement builds as you look down over miles of wild, sprawling Zambezi floodplain. It is a 2-hour flight to a bush airstrip and then a 2.5-hour drive to camp but the reward is an exclusive location in one of Africa’s truly secret destinations: the Liuwa Plain National Park. At its most dramatic in November and December when thousands of wildebeest crowd the grasslands, it is a destination of vast views and wildlife that ranges from huge, marauding packs of spotted hyenas to lions, cheetahs and antelope. With its 10 grand tented villas, the lodge is the park’s first and only luxury accommodation; game drives and walks take you in the heart of it all.
Days 5 – 7: Kafue’s Busanga Plains
Today you exchange one wetland wonderland for another: the Busanga Plains in the Kafue National Park are noted as the most productive part of the park as well as one of its most spectacularly scenic. An area of exceptional birdlife and colossal pink sunrises, the Busanga wetlands are home to thousands of antelope, joined in the dry season by zebra and wildebeest. Such concentrations of animals attract Busanga’s resident predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah as well as occasional roving packs of wild dogs. Complete with pool and wellness therapist, Shumba Camp has six tented suites raised on platforms and overlooking all the action.
Days 8 – 10: A Zambezi Adventure
It is a morning’s journey to your next camp but you will enjoy lunch with the Zambezi River easing its way silently past you. Set under giant riverside trees, Chiawa Camp is perfectly placed to give its guests a comprehensive Lower Zambezi experience. A conservation area of great biological diversity, the Lower Zambezi National Park is home to classic big game viewing, enjoyed from open-sided vehicles, on foot, by boat and even by canoe. Complete with swimming pool and even Wi-Fi, Chiawa Camp also offers exciting night drives, your chance to tick off some of Africa’s seldom seen creatures such as giant owls, genets and porcupines.
Day 11: The Journey Ends
There is time for breakfast and perhaps a last morning activity in the park before you are driven back to the camp’s bush airstrip for your scheduled charter flight back to Lusaka. This tour ends with your arrival at Lusaka International Airport but with a direct daily flight between the Lower Zambezi and Livingstone, you can easily add Victoria Falls to this itinerary and finish this adventure with The Smoke that Thunders.
