From animal encounters in national parks to adrenaline activities at Victoria Falls, this 15-day, guided Zambia safari holiday showcases the best that the country has to offer.

You’ll cover the highlights of Zambia, beginning with South Luangwa National Park. Spot the park’s famous big game species on game drives, walking safaris and even night game drives (this national park is one of only a few on the continent that allows game drives after dark).

Next, it’s Lower Zambezi National Park, known for canoe safaris, fishing trips and gorgeous sunset river cruises. Your Zambia safari holiday ends in the historic town of Livingstone, which is also the gateway to Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the natural world.

If you’re looking to get off the beaten safari track, explore game-rich national parks on foot and feel the fresh spray of the world’s largest waterfall on your face, then Zambia is the perfect destination for your adventure.
Safari Camp
Upon landing in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, take a domestic flight to Mfuwe from where a private transfer will take you to South Luangwa National Park. You’ll be staying at Flatdogs Camp, which is the closest camp to the park’s main gate and a great place from where to enjoy incredible views of the parklands.

Relax and unwind after a long journey. Look out for your first glimpses of Zambia’s wildlife. Flatdogs is proud to support local communities and you can visit many of its projects, such as those in the nearby Mfuwe village, if you want to.
Meals
  • Dinner
Safari Camp
Start exploring South Luangwa with a morning game drive in an open-top safari vehicle. Spot giant mammals, an exotic array of birdlife, as well as plenty of other wildlife sightings, especially as creatures come to drink at the Luangwa River.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Enjoy your morning game drive in the national park. Keep your eyes peeled for some of Zambia’s endemic species, including Thornicroft’s giraffes, Crawshay’s zebras and Cookson’s wildebeests.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Leaving Flatdogs behind, you’ll delve deeper into the national park while heading for Nkonzi Camp, a rustic safari lodge located in a remote region of the national park. Sleep in an open-air, en-suite safari tent (complete with hot water bucket showers and flushing toilets) and enjoy homemade meals prepared with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Enjoy stargazing without light pollution out in the bush at night.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Zambia is the birthplace of walking safari. Learn about intricate ecosystems and rich flora during your walking safari trip. Your experienced, highly trained walking safari guide will tell you more about tracking big game by following their scat, footprints and other signs.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Enjoy morning and evening game drives in this remote region of South Luangwa National Park. Explore the Mfuwe bridge area, head north to some of the least-visited areas in the park or enjoy the reliable game viewing found in the Mushilashi-Luwi area.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Your South Luangwa adventure continues with an evening game drive. Leave your camp at around 4:00 pm and explore the national park while enjoying picturesque sunset moments. This is also the best time to see the park’s predators as they wake up and go on a lookout of their prey. Continue your safari in the dark, with the help of the vehicle’s floodlights.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Swapping South Luangwa for the Lower Zambezi National Park, your Zambia safari adventure continues as you take another domestic flight and head to your next safari camp, Mvuu Lodge. Located on the scenic banks of the Zambezi, Mvuu is a luxury safari lodge nestled in the game-rich Chiawa region. It is perched outside the park and directly opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Explore the Chiawa region before heading into Lower Zambezi. Here, you’ll see kudus, impalas, elephants, buffalos, lions, hyenas and leopards. The wetlands, bushveld and riverine areas are home to kingfishers, bee-eaters, hornbills, vultures, owls and parrots.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
You have the option to enjoy river activities on the Zambezi, including fishing excursions, canoe safaris and river cruises, where you can watch wildlife as they come to the water’s edge to quench their thirst. Not interested in the options? Relax in your safari lodge and watch hippos and crocodiles in the river.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safai Lodge
Start early for a fishing trip to the river. If you are lucky enough you will end up catching the prized tigerfish (just watch out for their teeth!). This trophy species weighs up to nine kilogram. Take a lunch break during the hottest part of the day and return for sundowners in the evening.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Say goodbye to the national parks and head for the historic town of Livingstone, the gateway to Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world. You’ll be staying at Chundukwa River Lodge, a safari-style property on the banks of the Zambezi that has five stilted chalets and a family house.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Known among locals as Mosi Oa Tunya (which means "the smoke that thunders"), Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a truly impressive sight to behold. With a huge variety of optional and included activities on offer, you won’t run out of ways to explore and enjoy the falls.

You might want to take a hike along the footpaths around the region for epic views and billowing spray or see the falls from above during a helicopter tour. Just inform us about it and we will be happy to make arrangements for you.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Livingstone is named after the Scottish explorer David Livingstone, the first European to see Victoria Falls in 1855.

Meals
