Journey highlights

Key moments and experiences on this trip

Walking safari
Lower Zambezi National Park

Walking safari

Explore the African bush up-close and personal, a unique experience that vehicle-only safaris are unable to deliver. Our walks focus on the island's vegetation, tracks, and other evidence of life. Insects and birds are plentiful, but animals such as bushbucks, waterbuck, and even elephants might be seen while walking.

River cruise
Lower Zambezi National Park

River cruise

A Zambezi cruise is a spectacular experience for those who wish to enjoy the bush from the water. The sunset cruise, in particular, offers an opportunity to capture the abundant wildlife, with bushbuck on the watch for predators, elephants playing in the water, and lions sunning themselves on the riverbanks.

Angling on the Zambezi
Lower Zambezi National Park

Angling on the Zambezi

Try angling on the Zambezi River in one of our fishing boats to try your luck (and, of course, skill) at catching the elusive Tiger Fish. Anglers can also look for a variety of other species such as a bream, vundu, nkupi, and a variety of other tropical fish.

Rural village tour
Lower Zambezi National Park

Rural village tour

Visitors who want to experience a rural Zambian community can visit Makanya Village. You will be introduced to the village's residents and facilities. On the way back to the lodge, the village walk is often coupled with a brief sunset cruise or a visit to the banana farm.

Canoeing safari
Lower Zambezi National Park

Canoeing safari

The Zambezi canoeing safari will take you down the river’s remote channels, flanked by national parks on both sides. Hippos are always in sight and elephants, zebras, puku, impala, buffalo, waterbuck, baboons, and crocodiles can all be seen.

Zambezi National Park game drive
Lower Zambezi National Park

Zambezi National Park game drive

Fantastic planning and arranging of this trip by Robert of Absolute Zambia Safaris — everything was perfect from start to finish. We were picked up on time for all activities, the hotel was great — good food, nice pool, wifi, etc and good location, the white water rafting was great, Angel Pool was very much enjoyed by everyone and the sunset cruise was almost empty — so we had the entire upper deck of the boat to ourselves. The food on the boat was tremendous, and the sunset magnificent. Everyone said this was possibly the best holiday ever. We are very grateful to Absolute Zambia whose flawless organising of all of this made it happen.

Absolute Zambia Safaris organised a 2 week trip in Zambia for us — to South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and Livingstone. We cannot thank them enough for their wonderful organisation, thoughtful communication and great value for money. This was our first visit to Africa and they made it a breeze, with excellent choices of accomodation, transport, and drivers etc. At all times we were well looked after and had absolutely no concerns regarding safety or anything else for that matter. Thanks so much Absolute Zambia, we will get back to you for our next holiday in Africa.
