Itinary in details

Early in the morning, a representative from Dav Safaris will pick you up at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport and transport you to Lower Zambezi National Park. Lunch will be served to you at the hotel. You’ll go on an exhilarating game drive after lunch. The Zambezi National Park is home to a variety of huge species, including elephants, lions, buffalo and leopards. In addition, sable antelope, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, and impala herds, as well as numerous smaller game species, can be seen.

You will take part in a morning river safari on the Zambezi River, during which we may spot hippos, elephants, crocodiles, lions, and many other park residents. You will leave on a nighttime game drive. The Lower Zambezi Valley supports exceptional game concentrations, including leopards, Impala are everywhere, and kudu, eland, waterbuck, zebra, and wildebeest are common. These habitats include floodplains, grasslands, and towering forests. Kingfishers and African skimmers soar over the water as colorful carmine bee-eater colonies live along the sandy riverbanks. This park’s charm lies in its wilderness state, where it is still comparatively undeveloped. Although the variety of species is not as great as in other large parks, the chances to see game meandering along the Zambezi canals at close range are spectacular.

You will be driven to Lusaka Airport following breakfast in order to catch a flight to Mfuwe Airport. A representative from Dav Safaris will collect you up at the airport and transport you to South Luangwa National Park as soon as you arrive. Lunch will be served to you at the hotel. You’ll go on an exhilarating game drive after lunch. The park is renowned for its enormous population of leopards and has a high density of species.

You will take part in a morning river safari on the Zambezi River, during which we may spot hippos, elephants, crocodiles, lions, and many other park residents. Then you’ll go on a walking safari with an armed guide before returning to your accommodation to rest till the evening. In the evening, you will leave for a game drive through South Luangwa National Park. The park is located just at the mouth of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, and the river meanders through the expansive parklands, creating breathtaking scenery.

After breakfast set off for the South Luangwa National Park for a morning game drive. After your early-morning game drive, you make the transfer to Luambe National Park. Get away from the throng and discover a true untamed environment at Luambe National Park, which offers exceptional chances to see lions, elephants, leopards, crocodiles, and hippos. The park offers amazing opportunities for wildlife observation in breathtaking settings. Some of the most frequently sighted land animals are elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena, giraffe, and puku. The Luangwa River, which runs through the park, also makes for excellent crocodile and hippo sightings as well as exceptional birding.

The entire day is yours to spend discovering Luambe National Park. For its size, Zambia’s Luambe National Park ought to have the hugest mammals. The Park has mostly not changed over the years thanks to its off-the-beaten-path location, which makes it a quiet, remote area unaffected by common tourist routes. In addition to wildlife drives, you may go on a walking safari and go birding.

You will proceed to the private, 100 square km Miombo woodland preserve known as Mutinondo Wilderness after breakfast. With fantastic prospects for hiking and birding in particular, Mutinondo Wilderness is a haven for outdoor pursuits. Undoubtedly, we’ll take pleasure in an afternoon guided trip to Mutinondo Waterfalls, which is located below the cliff. As an alternative, you can hike on your own on less difficult trails. The unusual terrain of Mutinondo Wilderness is made up of enormous “whalebacks” (granite boulders) that are dispersed across the Miombo woodland.

Afterwards, depart for North Luangwa National Park after breakfast. We’ll go for a walk along the river in the afternoon, and you can cool yourself with a dip in the mountain stream. You will spend the night in campsite giving you a truly African wildness.

On this day, we’ll descend the escarpment to our second campsite near the park’s boundaries. This southern area of the park is ideal for walking safaris, with superb views of Buffalo, Elephant, and Lion. We might even see some of the increasingly prevalent African Wild Dogs that roam here if we’re lucky.

After breakfast, head to the exclusive Shiwa Ng’andu Estate’s Kapishya Hot Springs. The 100-square-kilometer estate is ideal for walking and horseback riding for experienced riders. Birding is also fantastic. Kapishya Hot Springs is 30 kilometers from the manor residence. The chalets are nestled in magnificent grounds just a few minutes’ walk from the hot springs. Kapishya Hot Springs is encircled by a dense forest of lush trees. The quiet location feels like a hidden gem within a huge 20th-century colonial mansion.

On this day, you will unwind at the resort and engage in some optional activities. White water rafting, hiking, mountain biking, as well as guided walks around the neighborhood’s exciting sites, such as Bare Back Hill, which Dr. Livingston scaled, or a rock shelter with paintings that are thought to be 60 000 years old. These activities are so numerous that you could easily get lost in them. The Shiwa valley may be seen well from a breathtaking hike that is less than a mile down the road.

After breakfast, you’ll immediately leave for Lusaka. You will take a city tour in the evening when you get in Lusaka. The town center market is similar to an open electronics or Home Depot market; it is not exciting to buy anything here, but it is wonderful to stroll about as a tourist. This is NOT the place to buy souvenirs; rather, it’s about getting a glimpse into the everyday lives of the Zambians living in Lusaka. One of the nicest things to do in Lusaka, in my opinion, is the Kamwala Market, among other locations that we will go. You can buy practically everything at this authentic neighborhood market, including food, electronics, clothing, and even livestock. If time permits, you’ll also go to the National Museum, the New Government Complex, and the Freedom Statue, which is close to the intercity bus hub.

Following breakfast, you will be transported to the city for shopping and lunch before being dropped off at the Lusaka Airport in time for your departure.
