Animals like as elephants, buffalo, leopards, lions, giraffes, and hippos, along with more than four hundred and fifty species of birds, call the valley’s oxbow lagoons, forests, and plains home.

Day 1: Meet & Greet / Flight to Lower Zambezi National Park

Upon your arrival at Lusaka International Airport, a representative will be there to greet you. From there, you will be connected to your short flight to Lower Zambezi National Park.

There are several islands dotting the vast Zambezi River, which becomes apparent as you get closer to the region. There are still sightings of buffalo, elephants, and hippos munching on the sandbanks. Game drives, walking safaris, boat excursions, canoeing, and fishing are just a few of the options available to individuals.

Fantastic game viewing opportunities abound in the immaculate Lower Zambezi National Park, where guests frequently spot elephants, hippos, buffalo, and big cats in and around the camp! Your afternoon activity of choice can be a river or automobile ride, depending on your preference, following a late lunch.

Day 5: Transfer to South Luangwa National Park

Your last safari adventure will take place in South Luangwa National Park, after your transfer from Lower Zambezi, depending on the time it takes to fly there.

One of Kabira Safaris’ guides will meet you at Mfuwe Airport and take you to Luangwa River Camp, Nkwali, Tena Tena, or Nsefu, among their camps.

Located on the banks of the Luangwa River and offering views of the park, Luangwa River Camp is a small and intimate camp with five bush suites. On the banks of the Luangwa River, Nkwali offers six chalets with views of the park. The elite Nsefu Sector is home to six rondavels and six tents called Tena Tena and Nsefu, respectively.

Lunch will be served, a sleep will be provided, and then an afternoon activity will be scheduled, all depending on your arrival time. Either head back to camp or keep searching for nocturnal creatures after sundowners; either way, you’ll be back before 8 p.m., so you can eat dinner and go to bed whenever you like.
