Zambia Safari: Remote Luxury Package
Enjoy a luxurious, authentic, and intimate experience with Zambia. Relax at 4 remote luxury camps and take a variety of safari excursions at your leisure.
This Zambia Safari: Remote Luxury Package was designed for a couple in their 30s who wanted a luxurious, authentic, and intimate experience with Zambia. This was their first trip to Africa, so we arranged a 14-day safari tour that allowed them to relax at 4 remote camps and take a variety of safari excursions at their leisure.
They began with 5 nights in the quiet Lower Zambezi National Park. They stayed at 2 of Zambia’s luxury resorts: Chiawa Camp and Old Mondoro Camp. They had an intimate wildlife experience with rooms overlooking the hippo-inhabited waterways and several elephants milling by within touching distance during breakfast. In between expertly guided day and night wildlife safaris, they lounged in their luxury suite, took dips in the pool, and enjoyed a romantic, private dinner on the sand overlooking the Zambezi River.
Their Zambia Safari: Remote Luxury Package continued by flight to their accommodations at the secluded Tafika Camp. They stayed 5 nights at Tafika, which blends natural decor and wild surroundings with excellent hospitality. They got outstanding views of leopards, lions, and elephants on their game drives and also took a cultural visit to a local village and school. In the evenings, they indulged in delicious meals with the camp’s friendly owners.
Finally, their Zambia Safari: Remote Luxury Package took them to the southern region of the South Luangwa National Park. Here, they stayed 4 nights at the intimate and luxurious Kapamba Camp. They spotted the camp’s rich wildlife, including lions, baboons, and Cape buffalo, right from their room, and enjoyed guided bush walks to learn about the area’s diverse ecosystem. They were able to intimately experience African wildlife and the gorgeous natural surroundings while also enjoying the comforts of excellent meals, luxurious rooms, and their own relaxing deep stone tub for the perfect mix of adventure and tranquility.
