Itinary in details

Today you will meet your Safari guide at Livingstone Victoria Falls Waterfront, in Zambia, at 2:00 pm. You will have two days to experience Victoria Falls, a World Heritage Site that plunges into the Zambezi Gorge. There are several adventure sports available, such as 111-meter bungee jumping or white water rafting on the powerful Zambezi.

It should be noted that the tour’s first two days only include breakfast. All other meals are not included. Your participation in the safari is a crucial component. Everything you do, from filling the truck in the morning to carrying your own suitcase and washing your window, is a part of your experience, and when everyone puts in a little effort, the trip will go smoothly.

The Kafue River is where we will set up camp for the night after a lengthy trip through Southern Zambia’s miombo covered hills. This is a long day of traveling on winding, picturesque roads. We’ll make a pit stop for lunch and sightseeing.

We’ll float along the powerful Zambezi River, which is also the abode of the indigenous mythical god Nyami Nyami. In your boat, you’ll pass beautiful countryside and local riverside settlements. In the middle of untamed Africa, we’ll set up camp on an island. We’ll continue our canoe safari the following morning through a region filled with elephants, hippos, and other animals. After returning upriver to our starting campground, a motorboat will pick us up.

We’ll go to Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, where we’ll load up on supplies in the city’s hopping markets and shops. We’ll travel this afternoon till dusk on the Great East Road. Despite the fact that it is a very lengthy day of travel, we will arrive in South Luangwa earlier.

We’ll move into South Luangwa National Park’s “the valley” by descending. One of Africa’s best wildlife reserves, this secluded area is home to several hippos, elephants, lions, and leopards. We’ll set up camp along the Luangwa River and go on two game walks and two open-air 4WD game drives, one of which will be at night with spotlights to look for nocturnal creatures. (In the green season, December-April, walks may not be practicable in which case we’ll do extra game drives).

We’ll spend the final few days of the vacation in Malawi, known as “the warm heart of Africa.” We’ll replenish our provisions at Lilongwe’s markets before traveling to our beach camp on Lake Malawi. We’ll take a boat out to the islands to see the beautiful bays and coves.

After breakfast you will transport you from Lake Malawi to Lilongwe in time for your departure flight back home.
