Your tailor-made safari holiday to Zambia

Shumba Camp hot air balloon victoria falls hippos

This incredible itinerary starts with a 3-nights stay at the beautiful Toka Leya Camp which is set on the banks of the Zambezi River in Livingstone. Your stay at Toka Leya includes a guided tour of Victoria Falls, a tour of Livingstone town itself and the Livingstone Museum. You'll also enjoy a sunset river cruise down the legendary Zambezi River. Toka Leya offers just 12 tents, all of which are beautifully decorated in a cool African theme and perfectly positioned to make the most of the stunning river views. Following your incredible three-night stay at Toka Leya you will fly to the heart of the Kafue National Park for a 4-night stay at Shumba Camp.

Shumba aptly means lion and is named after the huge prides of lion found in the Kafue. During your stay, enjoy morning and evening game drives as well as boating in certain seasons. The highlight of your stay at Shumba 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 birds eye view of elephants, hippo and plains game! Upon landing you'll enjoy a champagne bush breakfast!
