4 days South Luangwa National Park
3 days Lower Zambezi National Park

Day 1: Lilongwe
Upon arrival transfer to a small lodge on the outskirts of the city, and final preparations for the Safari.  Accommodation in chalets outside the city (-/-/-)

Days 2, 3, 4 and 5: Luangwa River (South Luangwa Park)

South Luangwa NP is known for its abundance of African wildlife: Thorneycroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s Gnu, Crawshay’s Zebra, leopards, lions and big herds of buffalo and elephant. Game drives along the Luangwa River often produce spectacular sightings. Hippo families occur in high numbers in the river, unequalled in Africa. During the dry season (July to October), many side channels of the river dry up, leaving the fish trapped. This attracts many different species of predators, such as the African fish eagle, jackal, and hyena, to mention but a few. The colourful Carmine bee-eaters are often seen perching in front of their nests in the river banks.

Overnight in Safari Tents or Chalets in Wildlife Camp or Marula Game Lodge. (4x FB)

Day 6: Chipata

We drive  out of the Luangwa valley and head on to Chipata. En route we will visit a textile factory well known for its beautiful articles with traditional patterns as well as modern design. We will stock up for the next few days on Safari in the city.

Overnight stay at the Protea hotel in Chipata. (B/L/-)

Day 7: Lusaka

During the drive to Lusaka we will stop near Katete, where we visit the Tikondane Project run by Mrs. Elke Kroeger-Radcliffe.  We have the opportunity to learn more about the social problems of the local people, aspects of their everyday life as well as the African mentality and culture.

Overnight in Chalets at a comfortable Lodge close to Lusaka. (B/L/-)

Day 8, 9 and 10: Lower Zambezi Park and Zambezi River

A visit of the Lower Zambezi Park is one of the highlights in Zambia.The Zambezi River on the one side and the Escarpment on the other form the backdrop of our game viewing. We do game drives in the Park and boating along the river shore to watch the animals coming to drink.   

We stay overnight in big Safari Tents in Mvuu Lodge or good  chalets at Msako Mbezi Lodge. (3x FB)

Day 11 to 14: Matusadonna National Park

We cross the dam wall of Lake Kariba at Siavonga and enter into Zimbabwe. The boat trip to reach the Matusadonna National Park will take about 90 minutes.  The Matusadona is home to the big five, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo, as well as the highly endangered black rhinoceros. The specialty here is 'Rhino tracking' – we try to get as close as possible to these impressive creatures with an experienced guide. You also have the possibility to try and catch the notorious Tigerfisch (not included in the price).

Overnight in Chalets at Rhino Lodge. (4x FB)

Early in the morning we drive back to Sivonga in Zambia. After lunch on the beach of Lake Kariba  we drive up the escarpment and back to Lusaka.
