Itinerary

Start your three-day Zambian adventure at one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and extremely popular tourist attraction, Victoria Falls is known locally as “The Smoke that Thunders” and is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Spend the day tubing, fishing or whitewater rafting, or even test your courage on a terrifying bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge! End your day on a more relaxing note, sipping cocktails and enjoying panoramic views of the mighty Zambezi River, on a sunset cruise aboard a luxurious 70-foot catamaran.

Spend your morning on a guided tour of Victoria Falls to discover how the Falls were formed and the local customs and traditions that surround them. End your tour with a visit to the local art and crafts center to learn about and purchase authentic Zambian wooden carvings, drums and traditional stone sculptures. After lunch, head to the David Livingstone Museum and peruse its fascinating displays detailing African culture and the Stone Age people who first lived in the Livingstone area.

Take part in the ultimate safari experience on a day trip to Botswana’s Chobe National, which boasts Africa’s Big Five and the world’s largest elephant population. Set sail on a spectacular game cruise down the Chobe River to catch a glimpse of the area’s abundant bird life, pods of watering hippos, primeval crocodiles and herds of elephants. Finish with a land-based safari that takes you deeper into the Park for a chance to spot the elusive big cats that make Chobe their home.

Three days is only enough for just a taste of all that Zambia has to offer. Extend your stay and take a deep dive in this beautiful country & culture!

Kujiunga Nasi Katika Zambia!

Stand in awe of your surroundings while you experience the wonderland sculpted by Earth’s natural elements. Victoria Falls is classified as the largest sheet of falling water in the world and is roughly twice the height and width of Niagara Falls. Livingstone also cites the older name of Seongo, which translates to “the place of the rainbow” as a result of the immense and constant spray. If you’re lucky you may spot one of the many hippopotamus or crocodile that call the river home. 

Since you’re already halfway around the world it would be a shame to miss on neighboring Botswana’s first and most biologically diverse national park. Chobe National Park has one the the greatest concentrations of game in all of Africa. Keep your eyes peeled on your private safari in search for the park’s noted population of lions and African elephants!
