Upon arrival at Lusaka International Airport in Zambia, you will board a charter flight for your 30 minute air transfer to Baines’ River Camp on the Zambezi River.
Depending on your arrival time at the camp, you will enjoy an afternoon safari activity of your preference. For the next two days, explore the breathtaking wilderness of the Lower Zambezi Valley.
Measuring over 5,000 square kilometres of unfenced yet protected habitat, this safari destination has remained free of mass tourism. In the absence of tarred roads, power lines and light pollution, you will experience the authentic African safari on a variety of safari activities that are on offer. Game viewing and birding is offered in open vehicles, on foot and by boat. A gentle canoe safari down one of the beautiful tributaries of the Zambezi is pure magic and for those with a sense of adventure, tiger fishing provides that little kick in your safari. You will also have the opportunity to visit and engage with the local communities and conservation organisation.
On your last morning at Baines’ River Camp, a river transfer along the banks of the Zambezi awaits, followed by a road transfer to Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe (4 hours in total). Upon boarding at Marineland Harbour, MV Matusadona sets off onto Lake Kariba and you are invited to feel at home on your private safari cruiser for the next few days. You will enjoy game viewing by motorised boats, and bream and tiger fishing during the mornings and afternoons. The vessel cruises daily to a new destination, giving you the opportunity to enjoy ever changing vistas of Lake Kariba and view wildlife on the shoreline of the Matusadona National Park.
During breakfast we cruise to Kariba Harbour where a game drive vehicle will transfer you to your charter flight to Victoria Falls Airport. You will be accommodated in exquisite Stable Rooms at the Victoria Falls Hotel, a grand dame which has been preserved true to its original style and has an outstanding reputation of service excellence.
This historic town offers so many excursions, that you will have trouble fitting it all into a few days: Helicopter or micro light flights over the Falls, guided tours of the Falls, the famous adrenaline activities such as bungee jumping, white water rafting and gorge swings, or a champagne tram ride onto the bridge at sunset.
