Zambia Family Fly In Safari

Inspirational safari family holiday to Zambia

Affectionately known as the "Real Africa", Zambia is regarded by many as one of Africa's last true pristine wilderness areas.  The Zambia Family Fly-In Safari takes in 2 of Zambia's most famous parks, the South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi National Park.   The sheer range of activities and experiences on offer between these 2 beautiful safari parks is awe inspiring. From game drives and guided walks to boating, canoeing, and fishing there really is a little something for everybody. These, along with some of the best guiding in Africa, make it a truly incredible itinerary and something worth considering when planning your family safari to Africa.  You will stay at Mchenja Bush Camp in a 2 bedroom safari tent and at Chongwe Albida Suite.  These are simple, back-to-nature camps, where you will lose yourself in the sights and sounds of the Zambia wilderness.
