Where to go - forests & falls, rivers and floodplains

Lower Zambezi National Park This lovely park is downstream from Kariba and the Victoria Falls, on the great Zambezi River. This is the fourth longest river in Africa - 2700 Km from its source, as a tiny highland forest spring, to its wide delta mouth in the Indian Ocean. It has more game parks along its length than any other. A canoe trip on the Zambezi is the experience of a lifetime!

Kafue Game Park Bigger than Wales, this is one of the largest game Parks in Africa. Northern Kafue is a fascinating combination of woodland, open plains, riverine thickets, tree islands, and seasonally indundated flood plains. This is the 'Okavango of the future' and, when water levels are right, you can explore in a Mokoro - a traditional dug-out canoe. Visit our Safari Experiences page.

Luangwa Game Park is well known as the home of the original walking safari. The Luangwa River, running through a low lying valley, has an abundance of hippos and crocodiles, and the surrounding hills support plentiful game. Game drives, bush walks and canoe trips are exciting Luangwa experiencs.

The Victoria Falls, shared with Zimbabwe, are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and a World Heritage Site. For some months of the year you will need to go over to Zimbabwe to view the Falls. Check with us. Visit our special page The Victoria Falls.

Where to stay - under canvas or thatch, on the earth or water

We offer a selection of beautiful camps, lodges, and houseboats - all personally chosen by us. All offer a high standard of accommodation, beautiful design, and interesting activities. All offer something different and special. We also offer mobile camps where you can get even closer to the 'Out of Africa' feeling - always in comfort and in style. Contact Us and we can tell you more!

How to get there - road and air

Fly in to Livingstone or Lusaka from Johannesburg, South Africa. From there take a scheduled or chartered light aircraft to your camp. The transfers from camp to camp are experiences in themselves - we prefer to call them ‘winged safaris’. You fly over spectacular scenery, getting a completely different perspective, and you often see wildlife. We take care of all the arrangements.

Drive in If you prefer to drive yourself, and have the time, the main roads are of a good standard. Where there are no roads to the camps you will have to fly in from an airstrip accessible by road.

More to know - seasons and speciality safaris

Seasons Zambia has a fine tropical climate and is popular year round. Some camps are closed during the rainy season due to seasonal floodwaters. It is important to speak to us - we can advise on the best time to go for what you want to see and experience, as different seasons offer differ opportunities.
