9-day Zambian Discoverer (Superior)

Our 9-day Zambian Discoverer ‘Standard’ Safari combines the highlights of the South Luangwa National Park with the magnificent Victoria Falls and the wildlife variety of the Lower Zambezi.  Starting with South Luangwa National Park, you will experience one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and its oxbow lagoons, is among the highest in Africa.  From South Luangwa National Park you will fly to The Lower Zambezi which provides guests with the opportunity to get close to game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels.  Positioned opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, the whole area on both sides of the Zambezi River is a massive wildlife sanctuary.  Your safari will end with  2 nights in Victoria Falls, also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, or ‘The Smoke that Thunders”.  The falls is the world’s greatest sheet of falling water and significant worldwide for its exceptional geological features.
