This trip takes in two of Zambia’s best known national parks; Kafue and Lower Zambezi. You start at the spectacular Victoria Falls before heading north into Kafue’s southern plains. Make your way north through this incredibly remote national park, where you are unlikely to see another vehicle, before heading south east via Lusaka down to Lower Zambezi. Famous for its elephant and hippo populations and river safaris, Lower Zambezi is another park that offers a wilder game viewing experience. You can take canoeing or boat safaris on the river, which often gives the best sightings and proves an interesting contrast to viewing from your vehicle. You make your way back to Livingstone and finish on the banks of the Zambezi.
