Itinerary

Days 1 – 2: Explore the Luangwa River

Arriving at Lusaka International Airport, you enjoy assistance onto a charter flight to Mfuwe where you are transferred to Nkwali Camp. Check in for 2 nights on a full board basis.

Set in a private conservation area, Nkwali Camp sits on the broad banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. Such a position gives its guests the advantage of easy access to Zambia’s flagship park as well as activities in the private reserve such as nature walks and spot-lit night drives. Expert guides lead you through the experience and you’ll have the chance to take to the water by motor boat too. Each of the camp’s six rustic chalets has lovely river views and features an outdoor shower for the quintessential shower under the stars.

Days 3 – 4: A South Luangwa Safari

Enjoy a game drive through the South Luangwa National Park & check in at Nsefu Camp for 2 nights on a full board basis.

It’s an early breakfast today but the reward is wildlife spotting all the way to Nsefu Camp, located deep in one of the South Luangwa’s most game-rich areas. Accommodation here takes the form of rondavels – round stone and thatch cottages – with luxurious en suite facilities and stunning views of the Luangwa River through their large windows and veranda. The camp’s bar and lounge overlook a productive lagoon, often frequented by elephant, lion and leopard, and activities here are a blend of walks and game drives with the chance to visit a local village too.

Days 5 – 7: Private Zambezi Views

Fly to the Lower Zambezi via Lusaka; your destination is Royal Zambezi Lodge, set on the river & your home for the next 3 nights on a full board basis.

It is a full morning of travel time but you will be sitting down to lunch with the Zambezi River flowing past you. Regal, sophisticated Royal Zambezi Lodge sits on the river a few minutes from the entrance gate to the Lower Zambezi National Park and offers activities ranging from game viewing and catch-and-release fishing to sunset river cruises, guided canoeing trips and cultural village tours. One of the most luxurious lodges in the area, Royal Zambezi Lodge has 15 impeccably finished tented suites as well as a plunge pool, a wellness spa and even Wi-Fi access.

Days 8 – 10: Discover Kafue

Fly to the Kafue National Park & transfer by boat &/or vehicle to Shumba Camp, located overlooking the legendary Busanga Plains. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis.

It is about an hour and a half to fly from the Lower Zambezi to Kafue, a journey that takes you from a dramatic river to a dramatic wetland: Shumba Camp has an elevated position on Kafue’s Busanga Plains, a well-watered and particularly wildlife-rich area of this little-visited park. Busanga is a place of antelope herds and their predators – lion, cheetah and leopard – as well as stunning scenery and famously pink sunrises. Your suite looks out over the plains, making ‘armchair game viewing’ a popular choice, augmented by day and night drives with boating and canoeing when water levels permit.

Day 11: The Journey Ends

Transfer back to the Busanga airstrip for a scheduled charter flight to Lusaka International Airport & your onward flight.

There is time for breakfast and perhaps a last morning safari activity before you make your way back to the airstrip. This transfer is made with a combination of vehicle and boat or, depending on water levels, just by vehicle. You catch a flight back to Lusaka where the safari ends with your arrival at the airport and the commencement of your onward travel arrangements.

Reviews

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.

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!

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.

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

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.

Heather (USA)
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!

Roger (UK)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Gwen (AU)
Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!
