Guide Price



Experience the best of Zambia by embarking on an adventure that features Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River and the South Luangwa National Park, all whilst engaging in exhilarating outdoor activities.


  • Visit the world’s largest waterfall, Victoria Falls. Be brave, take a dip in the Devil’s Pool!
  • Zambia is the home of walking safaris and the South Luangwa is a truly beautiful national park to explore on foot.
  • The best canoe safaris in Africa are on the Zambezi River, let the current carry you silently downstream while you watch wildlife along the banks.
  • Enjoy the unique perspective from a boat safari on both the Upper and Lower Zambezi
  • Dine around the campfire before settling down for a night under the stars.

Day 1 - 5: Upper Zambezi River, Zambia

  • Relax in Tongabezi lodge, with a prime riverside location on the banks of the Upper Zambezi
  • Visit the majestic UNESCO wonder of Victoria Falls, ‘The Smoke that Thunders’

A great location to see both the lush rainforest surroundings of Victoria Falls and yet still stay in a traditional bush lodge for safari activities.

Begin by flying to Livingstone, where you’ll be privately transferred to Tongabezi Lodge for four nights. With an ideal riverside location right by the Upper Zambezi, sunset cruises down the river with a sundowner make for a perfect evening activity – both relaxing and full of wildlife sightings. Enjoy a day trip to see one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls, from the Zambian side. Thrill-seekers can take a dip in Devil’s Pool on the edge of the falls for unparalleled views over the water. Similarly, we can arrange a micro flight over the falls for a spectacular birds-eye view.

Day 5 - 9: Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

  • The ultimate destination to experience a variety of activities, game drives, walking, canoeing, boat safaris and sleepouts.
  • Encounter herds of elephants along the banks of Chongwe River whilst canoeing with your private guide

A national park with everything you could ask for – abundant wildlife, fish-filled waters and lively riverside wildlife.

Fly to the Lower Zambezi National Park where you’ll spend four nights in a suite at Time + Tide Chongwe Camp. Whilst at Chongwe, a private guide will be at your disposal to make the most of your stay. In the heart of the elephant country, it’s not usual to see them wandering through the camp or taking a bath in the river. Enjoy wildlife sightings whilst on both walking safaris and game drives, or spend a day on the river fishing for the renowned tigerfish. Don’t miss the opportunity to spend a night under the stars, falling asleep to the distant sound of laughing hyenas.

Day 9 - 12: South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

  • Snap incredible photos from the secret wildlife hide and track game on foot with your professional safari guide
  • Witness your own private corner of Africa, enjoying a soak in your very own rolltop bath

Located on South Luangwa’s river system, this national park boasts prime spots to see bathing elephants and hippos.

Finish your itinerary with a flight to Mfuwe Airport. From here, you’ll be transferred into South Luangwa for three nights at Time + Tide Mchenja. Nestled on the banks of the River Luangwa, a variety of incredible animals are at your fingertips. Follow the river’s water sources and head out on a game drive in the hope of spotting lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo. Return to the wilderness at night for a taste of nocturnal bush drama. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a civet or catch a glimpse of the elusive leopard during your stay, before returning to Mfuwe for your flight home.
