Stunning Zambia Falls and Sky Safari

Inspirational natural wonders holiday to Zambia

See Zambia's undiscovered gem, the Kafue National Park, with its immense space and fantastic wildlife, and tag on one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls. The perfect start to your safari, 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.

Shumba Camp aptly means lion and is named after the huge prides of lion 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, hippo and plains game. Upon landing you'll enjoy a champagne bush breakfast.
