Safaris, Zambia: Robin Pope
Day 1
You will be met at Livingstone Airport and transferred to your hotel set high on a hill next to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, close to the Zambezi River and the mighty Victoria Falls.
 
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent "Smoke That Thunders" first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains and is a magnificent sight.
 
Please note that the Zambian side of the falls dries up in October and November, when it is better to visit the Zimbabwean side.
Day 2
Today explore on foot the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest and enjoy magnificent views (pay park entrance fee locally). We suggest you take your own raincoat, as those on hire are often well used.
 
Afterwards there is the option to visit Livingstone Museum and a Zambian Village, to learn more about local life.
Day 3
At leisure to relax at your hotel near the magnificent Victoria Falls.
  
Many optional activities are on offer, such as a helicopter flight over the falls, an elephant-back safari or a game drive in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
 
Adrenalin seekers can participate in many adventure activities such as canoeing in the gentler rapids above the falls, abseiling or white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), or bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
 
You can also take an excursion to view the Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side (passport and univisa required).
Day 4
Transfer to Livingstone Airport for your flight to Lusaka and onward light aircraft flight to Mfuwe.
 
You will be met at Mfuwe airstrip and transferred to the famous South Luangwa National Park.
   
Check into your camp in this renowned wildlife wilderness, before setting out in the late afternoon on a bush walk or open top game viewing drive with your lodge ranger. Game is most easily sighted in the dry season from April to October, but the park is at its most beautiful in the first half of the year after the rains of the wet season.
Days 5 To 6
South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s most famous wildlife park, covering an area in excess of 5,600 square miles (9,050 square kilometres). Sustained by the great Luangwa River the park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The changing seasons add to the park’s richness, ranging from dry bare bushveld in the winter to a lush green in the summer in this pristine wildlife wilderness.
  
Rise early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view wildlife either on foot or from an open top safari vehicle in this great conservation area. With over 60 different animal species, the concentration of game around the Luangwa River and its ox bow lagoons is amongst the highest in Africa, including four of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard (sadly rhino has been poached to extinction). Also search for zebra, giraffe, antelope and much more, with leopard sightings being particularly outstanding.
 
Birding is also outstanding with over 400 different species, including large flocks of cranes. From late August to October you can enjoy the amazing spectacle of thousands of southern carmine bee-eaters nesting along the river banks. From November numerous migratory birds start to arrive to exploit the feeding opportunities presented during the warm rainy season - including red chested cuckoo, hobbies and birds of prey such as steppe buzzards that travel from as far afield as Russia.
 
After relaxing at your lodge during the heat of the day, in the late afternoon set out on another game activity with your ranger. In the evening relax by the campfire under a balmy African sky and hear the untamed sounds of wildlife all around.
Day 7
After some early morning game viewing in South Luangwa, transfer to Mfuwe Airport for your light aircraft to Lilongwe and onward flight to the southern shore of beautiful Lake Malawi.
 
Originally named Lake Nyasa when discovered by David Livingstone (who called it the "Lake of Stars" due to the many lanterns of fisherman at night), this is the third largest lake in Africa and the southernmost lake in the Great Rift Vally system, bordering both Mozambique to the east and Tanzania to the north.
 
Check into your hotel overlooking this magnificent fresh water lake.
 
Note: Direct flights operate from Mfuwe to Lilongwe on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday. On other days of the week you will need to fly via Lusaka. There is a connecting flight from Lilongwe to Lake Malawi on a Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday only. On other days a 4-hour land transfer will be subsitituted. You will be required to pay approx $45 pp departure tax at Mfuwe and $7 pp at Lilongwe (payable locally).
Days 8 To 10
At leisure to relax along the shores of beautiful Lake Malawi, an enormous inland sea with a surface area of over 11,000 square miles (30,000 square km).
 
Enjoy lazy days snorkelling amongst aquarium fish, canoeing or sailing in its crystal clear waters, which hold more different species of fish than any other body of water on earth.
 
Note: Water shoes are recommended for wading into the lake.
Day 11
Transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Lilongwe Airport for your flight home.
 
Note: Scheduled flights operate from Lake Malawi on a Wednesday, Friday & Sunday only. On other days a 4-hour land transfer will be subsitituted. You will be required to pay approx $10 pp departure tax from Lake Malawi and $7 pp out of Lilongwe (payable locally).
