Kayaking and Walking Adventures in Zambia

Kayaking and Walking Adventures in Zambia

per person

Overview

Zambia’s little nation delivers a powerful punch for seasoned safari visitors and those seeking true adventure. It not only provides access to the beautiful Victoria Falls, but it also contains two significant national parks, South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi. If that isn’t enough to persuade you, consider the excellent birding, affordable lodging, and limitless options to leave the 4×4 at camp and explore by foot, boat, or kayak. Walking and paddling provide an entirely new viewpoint on animal encounters, allowing you to thoroughly immerse yourself in Africa.

This 11-day trip takes you on a complete tour of Zambia. Starting at Victoria Falls, you fly by light aircraft to four different camps in South Luangwa National area, strolling between them during the day to take in everything this incredible area has to offer. Keep an eye out for puku, giraffes, elephants, and smaller species like as monitor lizards, honey badgers, and tortoises.

After putting your hiking boots through their paces, your legs will appreciate a rest on the following phase of your safari, which will take you to Lower Zambezi National Park. The Lower Zambezi Park, bordered by the Zambezi River and a tiny escarpment, provides fascinating sports such as boating among hippos and crocodiles, as well as paddling the channels in search of shy elephants and lively vervet monkeys. Your home here is an ideal lodge river on the water with wonderful staff, beautiful views, and a relaxed attitude.

This schedule is designed to be smooth, with light aircraft flights between each of the key attractions, giving you more time on the ground to enjoy your safari.

Days 1-3: River Life | 2 Nights

ZAMBIA'S VICTORIA FALLS After landing in Livingstone, the little town named after the first European to witness Victoria Falls, you're whisked away to The River Club, a waterside resort that feels like a time capsule from a more polite era. The common rooms' vast verandas are lined with black-and-white images of Livingstone's illustrious past, the polished dining-room table groans with burnished silver, and the library's shelves are filled with all manner of British royal family artefacts. Down in your room, however, modernity is permitted to infiltrate with air conditioning, extraordinarily huge beds, bathrobes made of colourful African cloth, and - the highlight of any visit - views of the Zambezi River. Some apartments even allow you to recline in a clawfoot bathtub and see the birds and monkeys that reside on its banks. There are multi-bedroom homes for families, as well as two stand-alone villas, one of which was created for a visit by Princess Anne of England. There are private plunge pools in some of the rooms, and there is also a huge swimming pool with river views. The River Club is an excellent spot to unwind after a long travel and to re-acclimate to the rhythms of Africa. After a tour of Victoria Falls, come to the lawn to play croquet, run the self-guided path, play cards, or simply enjoy an iced drink while watching the world go by. The hotel features a dedicated kosher kitchen to ensure that Jewish guests are adequately provided for, especially on holy days.

Days 3-4 Into South Luangwa | 1 Night

ZAMBIA'S SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK After two nights at The River Club, you say goodbye to Livingstone and go to Mfuwe (in South Luangwa National Park) via Lusaka. The fundamental claim to fame of South Luangwa is that it is the origin of walking safaris, a one-of-a-kind experience in which you forsake the normal 4x4 game-drive vehicle and venture out on foot to find wildlife with an expert guide and armed ranger. Furthermore, it is one of the only areas in Africa where campgrounds close during the rainy season due to the impassability of the black-cotton soil. This implies that the animals will encounter few humans or cars for up to six months in certain areas, making them less used to our presence. Tafika Camp, directly on the Luangwa River, is your first stop. Tafika, like many 'bush camps' in Zambia, is built completely of thatch by craftsmen from a local hamlet using traditional techniques. This includes open en suite bathrooms (with hot showers), cold slate flooring, and everything constructed of thatch, from window shades to doors. Depending on your schedule, you might be able to join an afternoon game drive or perhaps go mountain biking. If you want to unwind, set up a hammock facing the river and keep your binoculars nearby for bird viewing. Dinner is usually substantial English fare like roast beef and potatoes, served under the stars with the Milky Way glittering above.

Days 4-5 Walk to Chikoko | 1 Night

SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK, ZAMBIA You get up before dawn to get a food and put on your hiking boots since this is your first day of walking through the South Luangwa wilderness. Chikoko Tree Camp is your destination, another thatched 'bush camp' with modest utilities and a true, off-the-grid African vibe. You stroll during the coolest part of the day, pausing for refreshments or to see giraffes graze or elephants drinking in the distance. Friendly personnel, wonderful meals, and, most importantly, a comfy bed await you at Chikoko.

Days 6-8: Walk to Chamilandu | 2 Nights

ZAMBIA'S SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK Chamilandu is a deluxe spin on a conventional thatched bush camp with designer furnishings, open-plan en suite bathrooms, elegant 4-poster beds, and solar electricity at the conclusion of a last day of walking. This is a suitable end to your walking safari in South Luangwa National Park, and there will most sure be celebrations over dinner, which is provided with a view of the Luangwa River.

Days 8-11: Relax on the Zambezi River's banks | 3 Nights

ZAMBIA, LOWER ZAMBEZI After breakfast, take a short-haul flight from Mfuwe Airport to the Royal Airstrip in the Lower Zambezi National Park. The magnificent Chiawa Camp will be your final stop on your African tour. The multi-award-winning camp offers breathtaking views of the Zambezi River and is well-known for its frequent sightings of elephant, lion, leopard, hippo, and other wildlife. It may be tough to leave the elegance and comfort that Chiawa offers, but there is much more to discover outside the camp's front doors. Explore the untamed wilderness, rich with big game, on foot in a safari vehicle or by boat and canoe, floating down the river while hippo and elephant frolic on the water's edge.
