The itinerary…

Day 1: England to Zambia

Fly overnight from London, via Johannesburg, to Lusaka, Zambia’s capital city.

Day 2: South Luangwa National Park

On arrival into Lusaka International airport at about midday, you’ll transfer to the afternoon internal light aircraft flight to Mfuwe airport in South Eastern Zambia. Marking the end of the Great Rift Valley, the unspoilt wilderness you’ll see from the plane window will fill you with awe before you even step foot in the South Luangwa National Park.

Upon leaving customs, you’ll be met by a Luangwa River Camp guide who will transfer you to your bush suite with traditional brick walls and a thatched roof, giving you a serious “wow” factor you deserve on your African honeymoon safari. Your meals and activities are included in the rate. Just hours since you left home, you’ll be relaxing in a sunken bathtub looking out onto your own private corner of Africa, or setting out for your sunset and night game drive to spot elephant, buffalo, leopard, hippo and giraffe (to name but a few!).

Day 3-4: Textiles, Birds and Zambian culture

Luangwa River Camp Water Taxi

Water Taxi to and from Camp

Over the next couple of days, you’ll settle into the safari pace of life, where you can explore the National Park by boat or vehicle. You’ll even have the chance to visit the Tribal Textiles local market where you can buy unique, locally-produced hand-painted textiles. Bringing a couple of things home with you is a fabulous way to enrich your memories of this wonderfully game rich area named Luangwa Wafwa.

Day 5: Lower Zambezi

Royal  Zambezi  Lodge Presidential Room

Presidential Suite at the Royal Zambezi

Waking up to birdsong of the 450 bird species in South Luangwa National Park, you’ll be filled with a wave of excitement for your early morning game drive to Mfuwe airstrip in time for your light aircraft flight to Royal Zambezi airstrip in the Lower Zambezi National Park.

You will admire the landscape from your aircraft window and then be met by the Royal Zambezi Lodge staff for a five-minute transfer to your Presidential Suite. Push luxury to the next level. Your rate includes all your meals. Relax after the journey with an array of treatments and therapies from the spa, or simply relax in your gorgeous, Instagram-worthy, copper bathtub. Or if you’re feeling active, set out for a spot of fishing and a sundowner picnic.

Day 6-8: Zambezi River Safari

Royal  Zambezi  Lodge  John  Wilson Fishing

Fishing on the Zambezi

Hike along the river or try fishing and canoeing along the Zambezi to fully immerse yourself in the wonderful nature of this Zambia-Zimbabwean border. With Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools World Heritage Site directly opposite, and just minutes from the Lower Zambezi National Park, this is an area where luxury really does meet the wild.

After breakfast enjoy a return flight from the Royal airstrip directly to Lusaka for your return flight to London, via Johannesburg.
