The Trade Route is an extraordinary journey across South-Eastern Africa. Active days canoeing on the Zambezi River and bush walks in South Luangwa. We recommend Malaria prophylactics. Border crossings can be slow, so you need to be prepared for the experience. This journey has challenges and is for the adventurous traveller but also has magnificent highlights.
The LL12 Zambia & Malawi covers highlights of Zambia, with a few days on Lake Malawi, in just 12 days. Ends Lilongwe.
LM22 Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique is the full 22-day tour ending in Johannesburg.
Overnight: 9 nights on safari designated campsites, in national parks and towns. Campsites have hot showers. Please note there is 1 night of wild camping when canoeing on the Lower Zambezi. 1-night lodge accommodation in Petauke, with twin bedrooms with en suite facilities.
Meals: 10 breakfasts, 9 lunches and 9 dinners will be provided by the Sunway crew, prepared at the vehicle and eaten around the campfire or in the boma. 1 breakfast will be provided by the lodge.
Transport: Due to sometimes poor roads we only use Sunway Safari trucks for this tour. Potholes, damaged gravel roads and livestock on the roads can make travel slow, you’ll pass through villages and witness the local lifestyle all the way. For the game drives in South Luangwa we use open 4WD.
Limited participation: An essential part of your safari is participation. From putting up your tent to packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. Your tour leaders will do all the meal preparation, but we do ask the clients to help (on rotation) with the washing up. There are some long travel days which means early morning starts so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.
