      You will be met on arrival in Livingstone international airport and transferred to the luxury boutique lodge called Tongabezi. Livingstone (named after David Livingstone), is next door to one of the world’s Natural Wonders, Victoria Falls. While many of the hotels are next to the falls, the benefit of Tongabezi is it is further down the river, offering a little paradise to the start of your Zambia safari.

      ChiawaHippo Lower Zambezi Zambia

      In the morning you will be transferred to Livingstone airport to fly into the Lower Zambezi National Park. Your safari guide will meet you at the airstrip and you will begin your safari through the park on route to Chiawa Camp. On route, you’ll see a host of animals including elephant, buffalo, antelope, big cats and a huge variety of birdlife. The Lower Zambezi National Park features the mighty Zambezi River which runs between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The main draw to this park is that there are so many safari activities to do here including day and night game drives, walking safaris, boat safaris, canoe safaris, and catch-and-release fishing. Chiawa Camp is a luxury tented camp and offers an intimate and exceptional safari experience.

    • Day 5 - 6

      Old Mondoro, Lower Zambezi National Park

      After Chiawa Camp, you will be transferred to its sister camp – Old Mondoro. This camp is small and intimate, with only four safari chalets. Sitting in a winterthorn grove, Old Mondoro is famous for the amount of wildlife that often walks through the camp – elephant, buffalo, antelope, warthog, and sometimes sightings of big cats. The camp has also had some more unusual and nocturnal sightings like honey badgers and pangolins.

These two parks complement each other well as the Lower Zambezi is focused on the water (with a strong focus on boat and canoe safaris), the South Luangwa is much drier and vast. Here, you can enjoy four days of game viewing by vehicle (both day and night game drives) or by foot. The camp itself is sister to Chiawa, and has recently been renovated. It offers a luxury safari feel, with private verandas, plunge pools and star decks.
