Itinerary

Days 1 – 4: A New Frontier

Arrive at Lusaka International Airport & enjoy assistance onto your flight for Liuwa Plain National Park. Check in at King Lewanika Safari Lodge for 4 nights on a full board basis.

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

Fly back to Lusaka & catch a charter flight to Kafue National Park where you are transferred by 4X4 to Shumba Camp overlooking the legendary 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

Return to Lusaka by air & connect with a charter flight to the Lower Zambezi National Park. Check in at Chiawa Camp for 3 nights on a full board basis.

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

Transfer to Chiawa’s bush airstrip for a scheduled charter flight back to Lusaka International Airport, your onward connection & the end of this tour.

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.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.
