Days 3 to 5: Luangwa Valley
A short flight to Mfuwe in the Luangwa Valley, will bring you to one of the most wildlife-rich areas in all of Africa. Here you’ll stay on the banks of the Luangwa River at the superb Chinzombo Lodge (images below). A fabulously diverse game population roams the valley’s waterways, plains and woodlands. Look out for hippo, leopard and some 400 bird species. Take a guided walking safari or a night safari, and expect plenty of awe inspiring encounters along the way.

Days 9 to 10: Zambezi and Victoria Falls
No visit to Zambia would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Victoria Falls. Your base will be at the truly exceptional Tongabezi Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi, upstream from the Falls, and voted one of the top 10 hotels of the world by Condé Nast Traveller in 2018. Enjoy watching game coming down to the river for a drink, sunset cruises, relaxing by the pool, spa treatments and an unforgettable visit to the Smoke that Thunders: the Victoria Falls. The nearby riverside town of Livingstone has also become a hub for adventure: bungee jumps, rope-swings and white water rafting trips on the Zambezi are just a few of the action-packed activities available. Of course, you can also explore the Falls and surrounding area in a more sedate fashion!
