Classic Zambia

Itinerary Overview

This one’s for the true safari aficionado – a trip which combines the three most popular areas of Zambia, one of Africa’s finest safari destinations. Beginning at the famous Victoria Falls with a stay right next door to the mighty force of nature, the focus switches to the South Luangwa National Park – amongst the region’s first game reserves but still one of its most impressive. Things are topped off with time spent in the Lower Zambezi – a mecca for all things safari.
