Nanzhila Plains

SOUTHERN KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Daily Itinerary: Day 1 – 4

The Classic Kafue package begins in Livingstone with a 3 hour road transfer to Dundumwezi Gate where you will be met by the Nanzhila Plains safari team. Enjoy a game drive into camp and settle into the beautiful rooms with views over the dambo to enjoy a 3 night stay. Nanzhila is the closest true safari destination in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000 sqkm of the Kafue National Park to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species as well as a quite magnificent location overlooking the dambo make Nanzhila Plains one of the most memorable safari camps in Zambia. For those coming from Lusaka, then it is a 4hour drive to the Musa Gate and an hour game drive to Lake Camp for an incredible 3 nights on the game rich shorelines of Lake Itezhi-tezhi.

Kaingu Safari Lodge

CENTRAL KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Daily Itinerary: Day 4 – 7

After a hearty breakfast, we will leave Nanzhila Plains and head out through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Kaingu. Kaingu is magnificently situated in the riparian woodland on the banks of the Kafue River with stunning views. African finfoot, hippo and a wide variety of birdlife are on constant display and river based boat cruises and canoeing is a must on this portion of the Kafue River. Kaingu also conducts game drives in a stunning section of the Kafue National Park.
