DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Experience the Best of Nature while Flying from Livingstone to South Luangwa

The allure of Africa lies in the center of South Luangwa. This is the place where wildlife including big cats and antelopes, roam freely on the plains. This is the land where vibrant colors of nature merge along the horizon. This is the place where you will feel a sense of space making you disconnect from the crowded city life. Simply flying in and experiencing the incredible beauty of Africa from the top in a plane, is the best thing you can do on day one. Land down to the international airport of South Luangwa and your guide will transfer you to the hotel.

Day 2: Game Drives Across the Resplendent Wilderness of South Luangwa

This exclusive game drive trip to Zambia, is sure to give you goosebumps on the very second day of your arrival. Get ready for the game drives bringing a surprise in South Luangwa as the reality of safari becomes your own. Spot Zebra congregating in large herds, Lions basking in the open, leaving one eye open and returning your stare, Wildebeest galloping with fabulous enthusiasm, making the buffalo and elephant seem lazy in comparison, and what not. Wander your eyes to another corner, and you will spot three jackals may be battling over a discarded impala limb. Don’t stop and keep going, to watch the ultimate battle raging between three young lions and a snarling cackle of hyenas.

Day 3: Enjoy A Thrilling Nightime Game Drive

There is nothing special than experiencing the wildlife while walking close to their home. On day 3, get ready to witness all from the closest. Today, you will enjoy an intimate walking safari in Zambia wherein you will spot the big cats and the elephants, and the Zebras on a thrilled night game drive. Across Africa, many private conservancies or concessions offer walking safaris and nighttime game drives. South Luangwa do offer this service which you are going to avail. With an armed ranger and local tracker, you can walk slowly and follow the prints in the dirt as you come to within meters of the antelopes and ungulates. You can actually gaze into a zebra’s eyes and then jump back as he flashes his teeth. Sounds exciting? Trust us, this Zambia Safari Itinerary would offer more than just better.

Day 4-5: A Big-Game Safari Along the Zambezi River

While South Luangwa is enough to satisfy your game driving hunger but, it is definitely not the end. An African Safari is incomplete without a big-game safari along the Zambezi river which is a few miles away from Luangwa. You will get a direct flight from South Luangwa to Lower Zambezi National Park, the country’s other premium big game destination. Once the private playground for a Zambian president, the park is now a UNESCO World Heritage site that dazzles with diversity. It is the place where you will get to monitor lizards crawl by, eland and bushbuck meet on the plains while lionesses chase meaty waterbuck. From May to September, the park’s wildlife is incredibly easy to spot. So, plan your Zambia trip accordingly.
