Days 1 – 4: To the Zambezi

Arrive at Lusaka Airport where you’ll be met & assisted onto a local flight for the Lower Zambezi National Park. Transfer by 4X4 to Kasaka River Lodge & check in for 4 nights on a full board basis. Game drives, walks, boating & canoe safaris.

The Lower Zambezi National Park opens this safari. Kasaka River Lodge is set deep in the park itself and had river views as well as an unmistakably authentic atmosphere. Each of the eight chalets has its own bathroom and private veranda, and there is also a honeymoon suite and a four-sleeper family unit. Morning and afternoon game drives are the best way to see the teeming wildlife of the Zambezi Valley but this is a camp that offers water-based activities too – boat cruises, canoe adventures and fishing trips. You’ll also have the chance to go walking with your guide, and if you are a bird watcher then make sure you bring your binoculars – this park has recorded nearly 400 different species.

Days 5 – 8: The Luangwa Wilderness

Fly to the South Luangwa National Park via Lusaka & your accommodation, Flatdogs Camp, set on the banks of the Luangwa River. Enjoy 4 nights on a full-board basis with game drives & guided walks.

You’ll trade the Zambezi River for the Luangwa River today. Two local flights get you to Flatdogs Camp, set on the banks of the Luangwa just outside the South Luangwa National Park. It’s a relaxed and family-friendly lodge, complete with an 8-sleeper family house. Morning and afternoon game drives are the main focus here, led by sharp-eyed guides. You’ll have plenty of time to really explore this famously game-rich area – full-day game drives are offered as are walking safaris – and if you are interested in the human aspect of Luangwa, the lodge will organise a visit to the nearby Mfuwe village. Here you can visit the anti-poaching base and local community projects supported by Flatdogs Camp.

Day 9: The Journey Ends

Fly back to Lusaka Airport for your onward travel arrangements and the end of this safari.

After breakfast overlooking the Luangwa River it will be time to transfer to a local airstrip for your flight back to Lusaka Airport and the end of this tour. If you’d like a couple of nights in Victoria Falls, simply let us know and we can add it to the beginning or end of this safari.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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!
