Luxury African Safari: Botswana and Zambia

Our Luxury African Safari travel package is perfect for anyone who wants to be fully immersed in nature while still traveling in style.

We created the Luxury African Safari package for a couple of nature lovers celebrating their 10-year wedding anniversary. They wanted to see the best of African wildlife while still pampering themselves at the top luxury lodges. This trip is perfect for anyone who wants to be fully immersed in nature while still traveling in style. It’s a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The couple started off their Luxury African Safari trip with three nights at Atzaro Okavango, a premier safari destination that offers sustainable luxury in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. They were able to explore the area on game drives during the day and relax at night in their open-air lounge overlooking the African bush.

Next, it was on to their nextstop on the Luxury African Safari tour, Thorntree River Lodge, showcasing incredible river panoramas from its unique vantage, the shared areas are fluid hubs of relaxation; the lounge flows seamlessly into the dining area. This lodge allows access to Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, The couple took a bungee jump off the Falls, shopped at the nearby Maramba market, and finally capped off their amazing adventure with a romantic dinner for two on a sampan floating on the Zambezi River.

On their last stop, they flew to the Lower Zambezi National Park. Set on five hectares of protected wilderness, Lolabezi Lodge has been designed to make the most of the private river frontage. The couple enjoyed waking up with the majestic Zambezi River flowing just in front of your room. They continued their African adventure with game drives, bush walks, and a cruise on the lagoon to see the resident hippos up close. They enjoyed the privacy and relaxation of this exclusive camp, which only includes four luxury tents in order to put guests in touch with their beautiful surroundings.

And then their Luxury African Safari Tour came to end, they transferred back to the Livingstone airport to start their journey home.
