Day 1
You will be met at Lusaka Airport to connect with your light aircraft flight to Kafue National Park.
  
From the landing strip you will be transferred to your game lodge situated in Zambia’s oldest game reserve. Settle into your lodge in this great wildlife area, before setting out in the late afternoon on an open top game viewing drive with a lodge ranger. Game is most easily sighted in the dry season from April to October, but the park is at its most beautiful in the first half of the year after the rains of the wet season.
  
Days 2 To 3
Kafue National Park was proclaimed as a wildlife sanctuary in 1950. At 14,000 square miles (22,400 square kilometres), it is largest game reserve in Zambia and the size of Switzerland. From the vast northern wetlands of the Busanga Plains that flood from March to May, to the lush Nanzhila Plains in the south, this national park is a true African wilderness that sustains huge herds of wildlife fed by the Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue Rivers.
  
Large prides of lion, solitary leopards and cheetah are the main predators, feeding on the thousands of red lechwe, waterbuck, tsessebe, hartebeest, zebra, puku, sable, roan and diminutive oribi and duiker that live on the plains and in the woodlands. Also buffalo and host of smaller carnivores such as the side-striped jackal, civet, genet & mongoose.
  
Rise early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the game of this great wildlife wilderness from an open top game viewing vehicle. With over 60 different animal species and over 400 bird species, including four of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard (sadly rhino has been poached to extinction), an unforgettable game viewing experience is guaranteed.
  
Superb fishing for bream, barbel and pike is also available on Lunga and Kafue Rivers, which are home to large numbers of hippopotamus, crocodiles and water monitors. Each evening relax by the campfire under clear African skies in this remote wilderness and hear the untamed sounds of wildlife all around.
Day 4
After some final game viewing, transfer to the lodge airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Livingstone Airport where you will be met and transferred to your hotel on the banks of the Zambezi River, near the mighty Victoria Falls.
  
Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest from February to June following the summer rains and is a magnificent sight (but note that the Zambian side of the falls dries up in October and November, when it is better to visit the Zimbabwean side).
Day 5
Today enjoy a optional guided walking tour of the Zambian side of the mighty Victoria Falls and enjoy the magnificent views.
 
Afterwards you can participate in many optional activities such as a helicopter flight over the falls, an elephant-back safari or simply relax by the swimming pool and enjoy the facilities of your hotel.
  
In the late afternoon we suggest an optional Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River where you may see hippos, crocodiles and abundant bird life.
 
Note: We suggest you take your own raincoat for walking in the rainforest, as those on hire are well used. There is also the option of crossing over to the Zimbabwean side of the falls for postcard views (passport and uni-visa required). This is essential in the dry water season.
Days 6 To 7
At leisure to relax at your hotel near the magnificent Victoria Falls.
  
Many optional activities are on offer, such as a helicopter flight over the falls, an elephant-back safari or a game drive in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
 
Adrenalin seekers can participate in many adventure activities such as canoeing in the gentler rapids above the falls, abseiling or white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), or bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
 
You can also take an excursion to view the Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side (passport and univisa required).
Day 8
Transfer to Livingstone Airport for your flight home.
