Days 1 – 3: A Private Luangwa Safari

Arrive at Lusaka International Airport & transfer to a scheduled charter flight to the South Luangwa. Check in at Nkwali Camp for 3 nights on a full board basis.

Having enjoyed assistance from a tour representative at Lusaka Airport, you fly to Mfuwe, gateway to the South Luangwa National Park. Your destination is Nkwali, an intimate safari camp set on a broad sweep of the Luangwa River with stunning views from the comfort of your king-size bed. There is time for lunch, perhaps a swim in the pool and to freshen up before planning your activities: Nkwali offers game drives, guided walks and boating safaris in a game-rich region of the park. You can go on night drives in Nkwali’s private reserve and even visit a local community, adding a unique aspect to your safari.

Days 4 – 6: Walking at Mana Pools

Fly to Lusaka & transfer by road to Zimbabwe where you will transfer by boat to John’s Camp in the Mana Pools National Park. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis

It’s a journey by air, land and water to get there but Mana Pools is one of the wildest spots left in southern Africa, home to large populations of elephant, buffalo, lion and hippo. John’s Camp sits at the heart of it all, each of its five Meru tents giving you traditional comfort-under-canvas, right down to the hot-water bucket shower in your en suite bathroom. Morning and afternoon game drives deliver dramatic wildlife sightings but the camp’s expert guides offer walking safaris too; there is also the chance to go fly-camping or spend a night under the stars on the camp’s raised sleeping platform.

Days 7 – 8: A Victoria Falls Finale

Fly to Victoria Falls Airport & transfer to Ilala Lodge in the centre of Victoria Falls town on the Zimbabwe side of the Zambezi River. Enjoy 2 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

It is a short flight from Mana Pools to Victoria Falls Airport where a vehicle and driver are waiting to take you into the town of Victoria Falls and Ilala Lodge. One of the town’s original hotels, Ilala has long been a favourite with travellers, not least because of its location a 10-minute walk away from Victoria Falls itself. There is plenty of time to visit the falls and with a full day in store, you can really make the most of Africa’s adventure capital. Activities range from white-water rafting, bungee jumping to sunset river cruises, kayaking adventures, elephant-back safaris and scenic flights.

Day 9: The Journey Ends

Transfer by vehicle from Ilala Hotel to Victoria Falls International Airport for your onward flight & the end of the safari.

Your road transfer to Victoria Falls Airport depends on when your connecting flight is but there will be time for breakfast at the hotel, buy a few last-minute souvenirs and maybe have a last look at Victoria Falls before you leave. This safari ends with your arrival at the airport.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Heather (USA)
Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!
