Overview of the suggested Zambia safari lodges and activities:
One of our favourite trips in Africa involves the combination of the South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi. These two amazing safari areas give you a beautifully rounded experience, offering both the dry game viewing of the savanna and the lush waterways of the Zambezi.
The safari starts with four nights in the South Luangwa, which is famous for its epic walking safaris, night drives, and excellent leopard viewing (arguably the best in Africa!). After this, you will have four nights in the Lower Zambezi, which offers walking safaris, boating, game drives, and canoeing. To have this diversity of activities is thrilling, and Zambia offers a truly authentic safari experience.
The two properties we use for the trip are Mchenja Bush Camp and Chongwe Camp. Mchenja is situated on the banks of the Luangwa river, set amidst a grove of ebony trees. Chongwe is just outside the official boundary of the Lower Zambezi National Park, on the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi rivers.
Who is this Zambia trip for?
This trip has been designed and priced with couples in mind (two adults travelling together). However, every trip we create is completely tailor-made for you. The two camps included here are equally great for families as both properties have family rooms, but we may also suggest alternatives depending on your requirements. We can move elements and change the number of days – it all depends entirely on what you would like to do!
