Exploration of the Zambezi and Luangwa Rivers.

The mighty Zambezi and the dramatic Luangwa Rivers flow through and along Zambia’s two prime destinations of the renowned South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi National Parks.

The Lower Zambezi lies between the rugged and dramatic Zambezi escarpment and the wide and spectacular Zambezi River. There are many channels, lagoons, sandbanks and islands along the river and then open plains, woodland and bush areas behind the riverine strip.

The unspoilt South Luangwa National Park is one of natural jewels in Zambia’s crown, and home to one of the most varied collections of wildlife on the planet. The park is centered around the Luangwa River which is renowned for it’s pristine beauty and wildlife.

Anabezi Camp

Day 1 - 4: Anabezi Camp

Anabezi is found at the lower end of the Zambezi National Park, exclusively located offering relaxing and serene isolation. With its unique location, Anabezi offers diverse wildlife sightings. Many yellow corn pods drop from the surrounding Ana Trees attracting a diversity of animals from the higher land to feed during the dry months.

You have three full days to enjoy the mighty Zambezi River experience. Lower Zambezi is great for water-based activities that include canoeing, boating and fishing with game drives and walking as a bonus, for you to choose from. You therefore have a full range of activities on offer for these two days; the choice is all yours. Tiger fishing (on a catch and release basis) is a must for keen fishermen.

Depending on your arrival time in the day you will enjoy a lunch looking out over the lagoon to the back of Nkwali or if in the afternoon for tea and the afternoon and night game drive.
At dawn breakfast is served around the campfire. The porridge heated on the fire and toast cooked by the coals.
