This wonderful itinerary combines two of Zambia’s most iconic regions, the stunning Victoria Falls and game rich South Luangwa National Park as well as some time to relax on the shores of beautiful Lake Malawi. With unashamedly luxurious accommodation used throughout, you will be incredibly well looked after throughout the trip and will bring home lasting memories of two of the jewels of Africa.
Depart London Heathrow on your overnight flight to Johannesburg.
On arrival into Johannesburg you will collect your luggage and check-in for your flight up to Livingstone. There you will be met by staff from Tongabezi who will transfer you up to the lodge (about 30 minutes) where you will be spending the next 3 nights in one of their Cottages. A romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream of Victoria Falls, Tongabezi is a unique property. No two rooms or houses are the same. Your time here will be at leisure to relax and enjoy the fantastic range of activities on offer, including walking tours of The Falls, canoeing trips, boat cruises, guided walks and game drives.
This morning you will enjoy breakfast in the lodge before being transferred back to Livingstone Airport for your flight to Lusaka and onward connection to Mfuwe Airport with Pro Flight. From there you will have an hour long transfer through the South Luangwa National Park to Nkwali Lodge where you will be spending the next 4 nights. Located on the banks of the Luangwa on a magnificent meander in the river overlooking the National Park, Nkwali offers understated elegance, seclusion and superb service. From here you will be able to enjoy game drives and guided walks through this stunning national park, enjoying the fantastic game viewing, especially the elusive Leopard.
After your morning activity from Nkwali you will enjoy breakfast in the lodge before being transferred back to Mfuwe Airport for your charter flight to Lilongwe. There you will be collected for the 5 hour road transfer down to the stunning Pumulani Lodge on the shores of Lake Malawi where you will be spending the next 6 nights. . Hidden away amongst trees and creeping out from the rocks, the lodge is a design dream with every villa having glorious views across the lake. Each of the ten villas is uniquely designed, with some incorporating the rocks that rush from the ground, and others incorporating the foliage growing around them. All have huge terraces, verandahs or decks plus spacious living, sleeping and bathing quarters. From here you will be able to relax, enjoy the beachfront location and a range of activities on offer
