Up close encounters with wildlife prove to be a life-changing experience and Zambia is one of our favourite places for this authentic privilege. Unspoiled wilderness can be explored on foot – you’ll be expertly guided into the bush for this heart-racing adventure, where you’ll encounter colossal elephant and towering giraffe.
If you’re a family of four or more, we might suggest an exclusive use stay at Chongwe River House, where guides and staff will deliver the ultimate private safari experience. Game drives, both day and night, with nothing but the sounds of the wild to accompany you, are perfect for spotting bellowing herds of buffalo and lazy prides of lion. This is also the perfect base for tigerfishing and river safaris amongst hippo and crocodile.
Not to be missed is feeling the rumble of Victoria Falls as you watch the sun dance in the incredible spray, drenching you as you stare, awestruck at the sheer size of this natural wonder. Combine your Zambian adventures with a stay on an island in tropical Lake Malawi, Africa’s third largest lake. Here you can snorkel amongst 1000+ species of freshwater fish, have a luxurious massage, and canoe as a fiery sunset lights up the water.
