Jenman Safaris has updated the Real Zambian Adventure, simply put the Real Zambian Adventure includes another day in the Kafue National Park… Our real Zambian Adventure Safari is 14 days from Livingstone to Livingstone… Vast tracts of wilderness and sensational wildlife: these are the hallmarks of Zambia and what you’ll experience on this 14-day camping safari in the heart of Southern Africa. Spot magnificent game and birdlife in the North Kafue and South Kafue National Parks, witness the unbridled power of Victoria Falls, relax at Kariba and canoe the Zambezi River in the company of hippos….
This tour includes 13 nights of camping accommodation, entrance fees, use of camping equipment (except sleeping bags), transport in 4×4 safari vehicle, professional guide, lower Zambezi canoeing excursion, and meals as per itinerary. Prices start from USD 1720 / EUR 1185 for 2009.
So what’s different you may ask… to put it simply, instead of 3 nights in Kafue and 1 night in Lochinvar we will be staying at Lufupa for 2 nights in the North and then move to Nanzhila Lodge in the south for another 2 nights and then head straight back to Livingstone on the last day
The new itinerary is below:
Day 1: Livingstone, Zambia: You will be met by your guide on arrival at the airport and transferred to your campsite at the Zambezi Waterfront right on the Zambezi River. Relax after your flight and in the afternoon we explore the Victoria Falls on a guided walk.
Day 2 – 3: Lake Kariba: We make our way to the shores of Lake Kariba. About 160km downstream of Victoria Falls, Africa’s fourth longest river flows into a vast artificial lake created by one of the world’s largest dams. Explore the area and relax on a boat cruise as the sun sets.
Day 4 -7: Lower Zambezi Canoeing: We drive down into the Lower Zambezi Valley and spend three nights camping on the banks of the Zambezi River. Enjoy 3 days canoeing down the Zambezi River, home of the tribal mythical god – Nyami Nyami. The river attracts elephants and other wildlife from the surrounding wilderness.
Day 8: Drive to Lusaka, Zambia: Today we leave the Lower Zambezi and drive to Lusaka, Zambia’s capital.
Day 9 -10: Northern Kafue National Park: Departing from Lusaka at 6h30 we head for the northern part of the Kafue National Park where we’ll camp for 2 nights. This reserve, established in 1924, covers a huge area of wetland and miombo woodland and is a wilderness sanctuary for lion, elephant, leopard, puku, lechwe and many other antelope as well as over 400 species of birds. The Kafue River, which forms part of the eastern boundary of the reserve, is home to hippo and great numbers of crocodiles. The Kafue is a seldom visited area; untamed stretches of wilderness reminiscent of ancient primal Africa.
Day 11- 12: South Kafue National Park: Today we make our way to the southern part of the Kafue National Park, where we spend the next 2 nights. In the south the major attractions are Lake Itezhi-Tezhi, the Ngoma Forest and the Nanzhila Plain. Lake Itezhi-Tezhi, fed by the Kafue River, is a large man-made lake of some 390 square kilometres surrounded by rocky outcrops, submerged trees and grassy banks. The Nanzhila Plains in the far south is predominantly Miombo and Kalahari woodland interspersed with dambos and grassy plains. The seasonal Nanzhila River that flows through the plains overflows its banks during the rainy season covering the entire area with the exception of the numerous Palm and Baobab clad termite mounds.
Day 13 and Day 14: Zambia and end of tour: We start to make our way back towards Livingstone and after breakfast on day 14 the tour ends…
