Classic Zambia


A 15-night itinerary starting in Livingstone and finishing in Lilongwe. This itinerary has you visit two of Zambia's most famous National Parks; South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi. Their fame is warranted, the wildlife sightings and general beauty here is out of this world. Also, as Zambia's National Parks are spaced across the country, you have the pleasure of driving across the country, from park to park. What this means is that you see what's in between the parks. The real Africa - not just the tourism experience. You will drive through local towns, villages, communities etc, and see what life is really like for the residents of Zambia. It's an eye-opening and authentic experience, and we feel one of the real pleasures of self-driving.
