Zambezi & Kafue Explorer
An 11-night safari combining camps on the Zambezi and Kafue Rivers, with nights at Victoria Falls and Kafue National Park.
This 11 night safari will give you a chance to explore two of
our favourite rivers in Africa, the Zambezi and the Kafue. With two
nights to explore the Zambezi River,
including a chance to see the incredible Victoria Falls, and nine nights to experience
the outstanding, pristine bush of the Kafue National Park, this is
a trip that is perfect for the safari enthusiast, whether it is
your first or your tenth!
The Kafue National Park is the
largest protected wildlife area in Zambia, and on a scale that is
roughly equivalent to the size of Wales. Although it is easy to
access fom both Livingstone and Lusaka, the park is relatively
underdeveloped, with fewer buildings, visitors and mod-cons than
many of the other parks we regularly visit. Four of the Big Five
can be found in the area - elephant, leopard, lion and buffalo.
Unfortunately the black rhino has been extinct here for a number of
years, but the presence of cheetah, hippo and some endemic species
make up for this. Some of these include Lichtenstein's hartebeest,
hartebeest, sable, and a number of other antelope species. The
lechwe population is in the thousands! The birding is spectacular
in the area too, with over 500 different species recorded.
This safari will take you to three different locations in the
park, and you will stay at Nanzhila Plains
Safari Camp, Konkamoya Lodge and
Mayukuyuku Bush Camp, all located in
different regions, allowing you a rich and varied experience with
respect to the wildlife, birds, and importantly, scenery. You will
approach the park from Livingstone and leave towards Lusaka,
meaning you cover a large portion of the park and maximising the
viewing potential. It would be very easy to extend your holiday to
other safari destinations, or even to a beach trip of some
description if you were looking for some rest and relaxation.
