Luxury Zambia Family Safari

Inspirational safari family holiday to Zambia

This exhilarating family safari explores Zambia's remote wilderness areas, the Kafue and Lower Zambezi National Parks. In addition, the family also get to discover one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls. An enriching journey staying in some of the finest safari accommodations Zambia has to offer. First up, Shumba Camp in the Kafue National Park. Shumba Camp aptly means lion and is named after the huge prides of lions found in the Kafue National Park. During your stay, enjoy morning and evening game drives. The highlight will almost certainly be the hot air balloon safari.

Board the hot air balloon as the sun is rising and sail over the plains. Enjoy a spectacular bird's eye view of elephants, hippos and plains game. Upon landing you'll enjoy a champagne bush breakfast. Next, Toka Leya Camp overlooks islands in the Zambezi River and is situated in Mosi- oa-Tunya National Park, a short drive from Livingstone and Victoria Falls. Relax, rejuvenate, or pump up your adrenalin with bungee jumping, white-water rafting, helicoptering and other thrills.

Finally travel to Chiawa Camp in the Lower Zambezi National Park. Wake up to spectacular views over the Zambezi River and its vast array of resident wildlife. Elephant, lion, leopard, hippo and much more, occupy this gorgeous region of Zambia. The activities here include game drives, heart-stopping game walks (age dependent) as well as canoeing, boating and angling.
