Overview

Do it all on this incredible safari, combining Zambia’s untamed National Parks with plenty of time to enjoy the vast range of activities on offer at spectacular Victoria Falls.

Compared to other popular safari destinations in Africa, Zambia is largely unexplored by tourists. This is baffling as it has so many wonderful destinations for wildlife lovers and remote camps where you can immerse yourself in the beautiful wilderness. Contrasting with this is the high-energy, adrenaline-fueled town of Livingstone, where a myriad of adventure opportunities awaits. With all this activity on offer it is easy to forget why you came here in the first place - to see the wonder of nature in full force at the magnificent, unforgettable and truly awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.
