Days 1-3: Tongabezi Lodge, Livingstone
Livingstone is your first stop in Zambia. You will be met at the airport and driven to Tongabezi Lodge, an award winning lodge right on the river.
A wide range of activities are on offer during your stay at Tongabezi. Visit Victoria Falls; enjoy an early morning game drive, drift down the Zambezi River on a sunset cruise, or book a romantic dinner floating out on the river. There are also some great activities for adrenaline junkies – white water rafting, microlight and helicopter flights.
We’d be happy to arrange any number of community visits during your stay. Tujatane Trust is the small school right next to the lodge, where many students are supported by guests. In Livingstone, check out Chipego Bike Shop, run by women to provide livelihoods for their families and community.
Days 4-6: Tena Tena Camp, South Luangwa National Park
Located in Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park, this area boasts one of the more exclusive game drive areas of the National Park.
A perfect bush camp, Tena Tena is sandwiched between the river and a complex lagoon system under a magnificent mahogany grove and is a magnet for wildlife.
You will not need to go far for some incredible sightings. The camp is small and intimate with a maximum of twelve guests. The space within the camp allows for increased privacy and every room is designed to blend into its environment whilst providing the best possible view onto the river.
Days 7-9: Potato Bush Camp, Lower Zambezi
Your final destination is to the beautiful and uncrowded Lower Zambezi and the small and exclusive Potato Bush Camp.
With a stunning panoramic view overlooking the Zambezi River and escarpment, this site is nestled under mahogany, sausage, winter thorn and acacia tortillas trees. The camp is perfectly located in the most game rich and stunningly diverse habitat the Lower Zambezi National Park has to offer, with spectacular views overlooking islands and channels, teaming with wildlife.
The camp offers daytime as well as night game drives. In addition, the Lower Zambezi is renowned for its spectacular canoeing. Enjoy a canoe ride down the most stunning section of the Zambezi River: the 14km long “Chifungulu Channel” starts just 100m downstream of the camp. Ample pods of hippos make the channel their permanent home and these are just one of the many surprises of this activity.
The camp also offers walking safaris. As the area sees a lower volume of guests than many safari regions, observing wildlife on foot is a thrilling option for guests.
