Day 1: Livingstone - Ngonye (Sioma) Waterfalls
Pick-up from your hotel/lodge in Livingstone, we drive on along the course of the Zambezi river up to the beautiful Ngonye Falls, not as mighty as the “big brother further south, but equally impressive.
The Zambezi spreads into several channels and the masses of water find their way through the basalt rock formations. We will hike around the area and cross the river by boat to an island to get the best view of the falls. Camping near the river. (-/L/D)
Day 2, 3 and 4: Liuwa Plains National Park:
There are few roads in Liuwa Plain National Park. That, however, this part of the park’s attraction: around 3660km² of untouched Africa. Most of this is a vast honey-coloured
plain of grass, with just the occasional water pan, island of raffia palms or small tree-belt interrupting the scenery.
Thousands of wildebeest, with zebra and buffalo, joining the more static resident, red lechwe and reedbuck.
The open plains are particularly good for oribi. With all these come the predators: hyena, wild dog and lion can be spotted. Camping in the bush (running water, showers and flush toilets are present). (3xFB)
Day 5: Mongu
On the way to the west we will arrive in Mongu, our stop over at the edge of the Barotse floodplains. Here we have the possibility to stock up for the next few days in Kafue National Park. Camping on the edge of the Barotse Plains. (FB)
Day 6 and 7: Chunga (central part of Kafue National Park)
We drive through pristine Miombo forest to Chunga. Several small rivers cross this area. These leave a number of waterholes in the dry season for the animals to quench their thirst. Wild dogs, which roam large areas of the park, cheetah and lion are among the inhabitants here.
Camping on the banks of the Kafue River at Mayukuyuku Camp. (2xFB)
Day 8: Lusaka
Transfer to Lusaka and drop off at your lodge or airport. (B/L/-)
