8 NIGHT ZAMBIA AND ZIMBABWE SAFARI

8 NIGHT ZAMBIA AND ZIMBABWE  - WILDERNESS SAFARIS - A PRIVATE JOURNEY

This safari combines two incredible wildlife areas Busanga Plains in the Kafue National Park and Hwange National Park - and the world-famous Victoria Falls.

The Busanga Plains in Zambia’s Kafue National Park are home to huge herds of lechwe and puku, and a high density of the lions that prey on them. Other predators seen here include wild dog and cheetah which are drawn to the prolific plains game of the area - puku, red lechwe, buffalo and wildebeest and roan antelope. As the floodplains dry out more and more game is attracted from the surrounding woodlands and it is then that zebra numbers increase and sable venture out onto the plains. Hippo are also abundant and often found in large pods in the channels. For those interested in birding, the park boasts 491 species including the endemic Chaplin's barbet.

No visit to the region would be complete without visiting Victoria Falls - one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world.  There is much to do in and around the area including canoeing, white water rafting, sunset cruised and helicopter flights across the Falls.

The last stop on this safari is the wildlife-rich Hwange National Park. Hwange’s mix of different veld and landscape types means that game viewing is superb year round. Wildlife frequently encountered in our area includes lion, large herds of elephant, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, spotted hyaena, giraffe, sable, roan, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck. In summer, wildebeest, zebra and eland are found in abundance on the open plains, while in winter elephant congregate in enormous numbers around the waterholes. Birdlife in the area is prolific with in excess of 400+ species - and varied.
