Splendours of Zambia and Lower Zambezi with Lusaka

Discover Undiscovered Zambia

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Lusaka holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Zambia is a true safari paradise and still relatively unknown by your average tourist. Visit the thriving city of Lusaka, admire wildlife in their natural surroundings and finish your exciting adventure at the wonderful Victoria Falls. 

Zambia is an undiscovered safari haven, less well known than countries such as Kenya or Tanzania and therefore it is not visited by as many people. A safari in Zambia and in particular the Lower Zambezi tends to offer a wilder and more adventurous experience, though you still get all the comforts you would expect. A safari in Zambia is by many peoples standards on the best places in the world to experience wild animals in their natural environment.

Spend your days on safari see the animals either on foot, from vehicle or by boat, while your evenings will be relaxed as you watch the river shimmering and the stars shining in the clear night sky. At Victoria Falls, feel the spray as the water tumbles and gaze upon animals as you cruise along the Zambezi River. If you fancy a little more adrenaline, opt to white water raft or take a helicopter ride.

Zambia will welcome you with open arms, the perfect place to escape everyday life.

Tailor your itinerary

If you are looking to add a touch or luxury or wanting to make this itinerary extra special then you can upgrade your accommodation. On safari you can choose to stay at the Chiawa Camp in a luxury tent and in Livingstone ask for Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma or David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa.

- Chiawa Camp: Resting on the banks of the Zambezi under a lush grove of mahogany and acacia trees, eight spacious tents on elevated wooden platforms with en-suite facilities offer Chiawa's guests ample comfort and stunning views. This camp takes longer to get to so game viewing is not be possible on the arrival day.

Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma: Situated on a dramatic bend on the Zambezi River within the magnificent Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the outskirts of Livingstone, it enjoys all the sights and sounds of the African bush. Resident wildlife, such as hippopotamus and elephant, are likely to wander through the Lodge grounds at any time, since in the National Park they have priority.

David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa: Constructed on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, this colonial styled structure offers well appointed rooms, tropical swimming pool, restaurant and bar ensuring that guests needs will be comfortably taken care of. David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Spa invites guests to step in to pure natural luxury.
