Safari: Zambia

Luxury Zambian Odyssey (7 days)

One week safari to three Zambian national parks, including the flagship South Luangwa, and end in style with a visit to the remarkable Victoria Falls

Start your Zambian adventure in the country’s flagship national park, the South Luangwa, for a chance to see the Big Five and some pretty riverine scenery too. The park has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 

Your next stop is the Lower Zambezi National Park on the opposite riverbank to Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools. Still relatively undeveloped, it’s a wilderness where you’ll hear the cry of the African fish eagle and see herds of elephant and buffalo at the river’s edge, and perhaps even lion and leopard.

Your final stop is at Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park just outside Livingstone, from where you can experience the impressive Victoria Falls.
