From the natural wonder that is Victoria Falls, to the abundance of wildlife and untouched wilderness, to the luxury safari accommodation popping up in game-rich national parks, Zambia has all the ingredients for an incredible luxury safari holiday.

Start this 15-day, private, guided tour in South Luangwa, one of Africa’s most renowned wildlife-watching destinations, staying in two gorgeous safari camps decked out in luxury. South Luangwa is one of the best destinations in Zambia for a walking safari and you’ll also have the opportunity to meet the Kunda people in the local village of Kawaza.

Then, you’ll move on to Lower Zambezi National Park, staying right on the banks of the mighty Zambezi. Your luxury tour of Zambia ends in Livingstone, home to the iconic Victoria Falls, where you’ll stay on a private island suite on the river and take a helicopter ride over the falls for breathtaking views.

This two-week Zambia trip combines some of the most remote, fascinating destinations in the country with stays in world-class accommodation and exclusive activities and is the perfect way to explore the country’s highlights in style.

Luxury Safari Camp
Arrive in Zambia's capital city of Lusaka and take a domestic flight to Mfuwe, where a private transfer awaits to take you to South Luangwa National Park, the first safari stop on your luxury Zambia tour.

You’ll be staying at Time + Tide Chinzombo, set on the scenic banks of the Luangwa River, which has luxury facilities including feathertop beds, private pools and in-villa spa treatments. Spend the evening with a sundowner on the deck and watch wildlife drift in and out of the riverlands.
Meals
  • Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Spanning over 9,000 square kilometres, South Luangwa is home to over 60 mammal species and 450 bird species, meaning excellent wildlife-watching opportunities. Head out on a morning game drive to spot lions, buffalos, wildebeests, zebras, elephants, hippos, crocodiles and more. South Luangwa is also known as one of the best safari destinations for sightings of the elusive leopard.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Continue with an evening game drive or a walking safari, which is Zambia’s specialty. South Luangwa is the birthplace of the walking safari, so you’ll find an amazing range of bush walks and trails available along with some of the most knowledgeable and highly-qualified guides in Africa.

A walking safari provides you with the opportunity to step out of the safari vehicle (and immediately feel your senses heightened), immerse yourself in nature and learn about Zambia’s complex ecosystems and how guides and park rangers track wildlife.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Next, you’ll move further into South Luangwa with a stay at Tena Tena, your camp for the next three nights. Located in the exclusive Nsefu Sector, Tena Tena offers luxury tented accommodation set in a lush grove of mahogany trees. Each tent boasts its own private verandah with stunning views over the Luangwa River, home to roaming lions and lumbering hippos.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Explore this new corner of South Luangwa with morning, evening and night game drives. South Luangwa is one of the few national parks in the whole of Africa to allow game drives after dark, offering you the unique opportunity to see Zambia’s nocturnal creatures and big predators when they truly come alive.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
If you’re feeling safari fatigue and wish to explore more of what this region has to offer, try a birdwatching trip (optional) with an expert birding guide and get to know more about Zambia’s colourful array of feathery friends.

You might also want to take a relaxing river cruise down the Luangwa or take a trip to the village of Kawaza to meet members of the Kunda tribe, learn about local customs and traditions and even buy some souvenirs.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Today, you’ll head back to Mfuwe and fly onto your next safari destination, Lower Zambezi National Park. You’ll fly directly into Chiawa Camp, an award-winning safari property with jaw-dropping views of the Zambezi, where you’ll be staying for the next four nights. Unwind by the lodge’s pool, chill out on the sundeck for the best river views or spot wildlife from the two viewing hides.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Lower Zambezi National Park covers an expanse of over 4,000 square kilometres and is bordered by the Zambezi (Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park lies over the other side of the river). Most of the wildlife can be found on the valley floor, with 57 mammal species and nearly 400 bird species calling this little piece of paradise home.

Popular sightings include lions, leopards, buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, hippos, crocodiles and elephants in herds up to a hundred strong. The impressive array of birdlife includes the fish eagle, black eagle, trumpeter hornbill, Meyer’s parrot and the Lilian’s lovebird.

You’ll even have the chance to spot the endangered Cape wild dog (also known as the painted wild dog or painted wolf), an incredible animal featured in David Attenborough’s "Dynasties" documentary.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
Choose from morning, evening, night and walking safaris from Chiawa Camp, or mix between all the activities available. A night game drive offers the chance to spot civets, hyenas, porcupines, genets and honey badgers, as well as lions and leopards on the hunt.

Bush walks provide a more immersive and slower-paced safari experience, allowing you to appreciate the park at a deeper level and uncover a level of detail that you simply can’t get from the comfort of a safari vehicle. You also have the option to take a canoe safari down the Zambezi or try your hand at hooking a prize tiger fish during an angling trip.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Camp
On your final day in Lower Zambezi National Park, mix up your safari activities with a hike to the spectacular Chongwe Falls, enjoy a picnic on the banks of the Zambezi or learn more about the culture of the region with a visit to the local Goba villages, where you can see traditional Goba dances and learn more about the amazing work done by Conservation Lower Zambezi.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Leave Zambia’s national parks behind and head to the town of Livingstone, home to the mighty Victoria Falls. You’ll be staying at Royal Chundu Zambezi River Lodge, an incredible luxury property with an unparalleled location on the banks of the Zambezi. For the ultimate private retreat, stay on the property’s Katambura private island in an island lodge suite. Spend the evening soaking in an open-air bath, then relax on the deck watching the currents of the river.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Towering 108 metres high and with a colossal width of 1,708 metres, Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and also a Unesco World Heritage site. Known to locals at Mosi Oa Tunya ("the Smoke that Thunders"), there are many different ways to enjoy the falls, from white-water rafting to helicopter tours (you can fly directly from Royal Chundu’s helipad), to swimming out to the edge of Devil’s Pool and peering over at the churning gorge below.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Continue your time at Victoria Falls with more activities. If your tour falls between mid-July to January, you will take a boat trip to Livingstone Island for the best views of the falls. Or, if you’re visiting between March and July, you may be able to spot a lunar rainbow (or “moonbow”) – a rare phenomenon which occurs when light if reflected off the moon’s surface. If you’re feeling brave, you have the options to take a bungee jump from Victoria Falls Bridge, go jet boating in the gorge or sit in the open cockpit on a microflight.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Luxury Safari Lodge
Relax in the area around Royal Chundu, where there is also plenty to see and do. Go on a guided walk around Katombora Island to learn about the traditional medicinal uses of the plants there. You might also want to take birding tour with an expert guide, visit a local village, try a spot of fishing or go horseback riding through the African bush.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Sadly, your luxury tour of Zambia comes to an end with a domestic flight back to Lusaka’s international airport, ready for your onward journey home.
