A Zambian Adventure

Itinerary Overview

Zambia has so much to offer, especially when it comes to safari. Which is why we've created (what we think is) the perfect safari schedule for unspoilt game viewing. Move across Zambia to three different luxury and unique properties with plenty to indulge in. A tip from us - Africa on foot is not to be missed. 

Accommodation includes: Nkwali Lodge, Tena Tena and Chongwe River Camp

His safari company still owns and runs the camp that has just six thatched chalets providing rustic luxury with views of the river and open air ensuite bathrooms.  The park features diverse habitats from woodland, groves of ebony trees, grassland and oxbow lagoons that play host to a wide variety of wildlife including superb leopard viewing, lions, wild dogs, elephants herds and large numbers of hippo.
