Walking Safari
Game Drive
Bird Watching

This 6-night safari is based around one of the world’s oldest rivers, the Zambezi. Start the safari at our Nyamatusi lodge, which is set in one of the wildest and most remote parts of Africa, on the southern banks of the Zambezi. Then head further upstream, past the mighty Victoria Falls, and into the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park to our Thorntree River Lodge, also set right on the banks of the Zambezi.

Watch the drama of the river and floodplains unfold on either game drives or on the river itself with thrilling canoeing safaris and fishing (catch and release only) along the Zambezi.
