Discover big game favourites such as elephants, giraffes and lions in three of Zambia’s best national parks, followed by riverside relaxation and adrenaline activities at Victoria Falls, the world’s largest waterfall – all on this adventurous, 15-day, guided Zambia family holiday.

In South Luangwa, you’ll take part in game drives (morning, evening and nighttime) and walking safaris in one of Africa’s most renowned wildlife-watching destinations. Moving on to Kafue, Zambia’s oldest and largest national park, you can enjoy remote wilderness in this less-visited safari destination.

Finally, in Lower Zambezi National Park, you can take your safari experience to the next level with a sunset river cruise. Your last few days will be spent at the legendary Victoria Falls, where you can enjoy a wide range of optional, family-friendly outdoor activities.

Your family’s comfort comes first and we’ve specifically selected family-friendly safari lodges and camps, which provide convenience for those travelling with children, on top of warm Zambian hospitality. Some camps offer child-friendly safari activities as well as first aid lessons, survival skills and weaving workshops, whilst others include babysitting services for when you need some peace.

A memorable adventure for kids and parents alike, this Zambia family holiday has plenty to see and do for all ages. Please note that the price of this tour is per family. We will request for the details of your family members after you book this trip for one person.
Safari Camp
Upon arriving at Zambia’s capital city, Lusaka, you’ll take a domestic flight to Mfuwe and transfer to South Luangwa National Park. You’ll be staying in the Crocodile Nest at Flatdogs Camp, a large tented house with two en-suite bedrooms, spacious living areas and a private swimming pool. Flatdogs pride themselves on their family-friendly ambiance, offering a great children’s menu, room service meals and a nanny service for when you need time alone.
Safari Camp
Begin your Zambia family safari adventure with wildlife-watching in South Luangwa National Park during morning and evening game drives. Big game favourites to look out for include giraffes, wildebeests, elephants, leopards, zebras, buffalos, lions and hyenas. You might even spot a rare African wild dog. One of the best safari destinations in Africa, South Luangwa is home to 2,000 species of plants, 60 species of mammals and 450 species of birds.
Meals
  • Breakfast

This award-winning lodge was named one of the top 101 hotels for families in the world by Tatler, so you can be reassured that you family will be well looked after here.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Even if it covers an expanse of 22,400 square kilometres and is home to a plethora of wildlife, Kafue is less visited than its neighbours South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi. Therefore, a visit to this national park is a real treat, as you’ll feel like you have this piece of paradise all to yourself.

Big game sightings in the national park include hippos, zebras, buffalos, elephants, leopards and lions, as well as the rare sprinting cheetah. Other species to keep your eyes peeled for include African wild dogs, bushpigs, bush babies, porcupines, servals, civets and honey badgers.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
You may want to mix up your game drives with optional activities such as solar-powered boat cruises, fishing trips, or excursions to visit local villages and markets for souvenir shopping. If you’re looking for a unique opportunity for cultural exchange, Ila Lodge runs a project called Lunch with the Ladies Club, where you can meet the women of the Chunga community, try the local cuisine and learn about their customs.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Kafue is also a noted birdwatching destination, home to 478 of Zambia’s 733 bird species. Ask your safari guide and camp staff about birding activities and keep your eyes peeled for a sighting of ground hornbills, fish eagles, African finfoots, Goliath herons, Pel’s fishing owls, woolly-necked storks or purple-crested louries.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Leave Kafue for Lower Zambezi National Park. Board a domestic flight to Jeki and transfer to the park. You’ll be staying at the five-star Potato Bush Camp, comprising three canvas and rosewood safari tents as well as a two-bedroom family house. Enjoy the luxurious facilities, including a private balcony area and a large plunge pool.
Safari Camp
Located at the southern limit of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Lower Zambezi National Park covers over 4,000 square kilometres and is bordered by the might Zambezi River. Across the river is Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. Wildlife crosses the river and travels between the two, roaming freely over the border.

Here, you’ll be able to see elephants, impalas, lions, hyenas, hippos, bushbucks, kudus, leopards, buffalos and zebras, as well as lesser-known and rarer species such as African wild cats, mongooses, servals, porcupines, African wild dogs, side-striped jackals, genets, civets, honey badgers and aardvarks.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Safari Camp
Continue your Zambia family safari adventure with game drives and walking safaris, but there are also options for canoeing, birdwatching, river cruises and fishing trips. Try your hand at tackle or fly fishing if you want to.
