This safari starts and spends the first day in Livingstone, allowing time to enjoy one or two activities and excursions typically available in the Victoria Falls area. We shall have a Guided Victoria Falls tour and Sunset Cruise on this Day. D (Dinner)
Day 2 gives you time to spare for your own activates. We would certainly recommend activities such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights by micro light, helicopter or small plane, and – a definite lsquomust!rsquo – visit to the thunderous Victoria Falls themselves. At times of high river levels the spray can be seen from 20 kilometres away, hence the local name Mosi au Tunya – the smoke that thunders
free choice of activities (not included in the price) B (Breakfast)

In the morning after our peacefully rest in Lusaka under we leave for Kafue National Park where we’ll camp for 2 nights. This reserve, established in 1924, covers a huge area of wetland and miombo woodland and is a wilderness sanctuary for lion, elephant, leopard, puku, lechwe and many other antelope as well as over 400 species of birds. The Kafue River forms part of the eastern boundary of the reserve and is home to hippo and great numbers of crocodiles. The Kafue is a seldom visited area; untamed stretches of wilderness reminiscent of ancient primal Africa. We spend out mornings and afternoons on game drives here
