Zambia's Classic Safari Trail

This suggested safari journey blends some of Zambia’s key wildlife locations using a combination of short scenic flights and shared road transfers. The nature packed parks and reserves of the South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi are visited first, with day and night game drives, bush walks and boat trips all featuring before you head to Victoria Falls for riverside relaxation and time to explore the world’s ‘largest’ waterfall.
