Itinerary

Day 1 - 3

Victoria Falls Hotel, Livingstone

One of the world’s Classic five-star hotels commands prime location overlooking Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, an acclaimed Natural Wonder of the World. A proud member of  Leading Hotels of the World, the Edwardian-style hotel, built in 1904, was splendidly redecorated in 2013 to combine its traditional majesty with modern sophistication.

Serene Lily ponds, arched loggias and broad verandas – offering magnificent vistas – seem custom-built for a spot of high tea or a relaxed gin and tonic, while a private path leads to the falls, an idyllic 10-minute walk away. Some rooms offer stunning views of the gorges and bridge below. 

Day 3 - 6

The Royal Zambezi, Lower Zambezi

Royal Zambezi Lodge, a spacious but intimate privately owned lodge, situated in Zambia on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River just minutes from the Lower Zambezi National Park and directly opposite Zimbabwe’s famous Mana Pools World Heritage Site. Royal offers the ultimate in luxury and cuisine while enjoying and participating closely in the sights and sounds of the African wilderness.

The lodge offers a vast range of activities that guests can choose from – from unrivalled game viewing, canoeing on the Zambezi river, to world-class fishing, or relaxing in the award-winning Royal Bush Spa.

Day 6 - 8

Kafunta, South Luangwa

Kafunta River Lodge is a classic Zambian safari lodge and combines all the essentials for a great safari. Here you will find the rest and peace you need after an exciting day on safari in combination with personalised service and a warm welcome from the Kafunta team.

Kafunta River Lodge’s spacious wooden deck above the waterhole provides guests with undisturbed views over the plain. You can absorb the stunning location and, while darkness falls, enjoy sumptuous candlelit meals under a vast African night sky, whilst watching animals of all types come to the floodlit waterhole, a simply magical experience.

Day 8 - 10

Three Rivers Bush Camp, South Luangwa

Three Rivers Camp is the latest addition to the Kafunta Safaris’ portfolio and is set at the confluence of the Luangwa, Kapamba and Lusangazi Rivers in South Luangwa, Zambia. The stylish tents lay under shady sausage trees and are facing either the Luangwa River or the game-rich lagoon.

Three Rivers Camp is exquisitely intimate with only 5 spacious tents, elegantly decorated with natural materials and earthy hues. They have large gauzed windows embracing extensive views of the Luangwa River and the nearby lagoon. Each tent has its own wooden deck with comfy chairs to enjoy the surrounding vistas.

Day 10 - 11

Kafunta, South Luangwa

You will return to Kafunta for one night before heading to Lake Malawi. 

At Kafunta River Lodge, each of the luxury private chalets and the main lounge & dining area overlook the game-rich floodplain. Beyond the plain are the Luangwa River and one of the best game viewing areas of the magical South Luangwa National Park, the premier park in Zambia and one of the best national parks in all of Africa.

Day 11 - 13

Blue Zebra, Lake Malawi

The Blue Zebra Island Lodge is situated in the Lake Malawi National Park on Nankoma Island, which forms part of the Marelli Island Archipelago, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Guests are free to chill at the infinity pool, kayak around the islands or enjoy a game of volleyball as part of the full board package. The lodge also offers free use of snorkelling equipment to view the unique colourful fish that inhabit every inch of the coastline.

Day 13 - 14

Mumbo Island, Lake Malawi

Mumbo Island is a pristine and deserted tropical island floating on the expansive waters of the Lake Malawi National Park. With a maze of massive underwater boulders, innumerable species of colourful cichlid fish and calm, clear water, the National Park offers what many consider the best freshwater snorkelling and SCUBA diving in the world.

The island is small, only one kilometre in diameter, and uninhabited so is in its natural state. The camp is hand built with timber, thatch and canvas and perched high on large boulders overlooking the lake.

Day 14
