Fall in love with Zambia Romance
Romantic getaway at Luangwa River Camp

A romantic escape to Zambia

Zambia’s 3 top destinations have been combined in this safari to give an unforgettable experience which is sure to make you fall in love with this beautiful destination.

The trip begins in Livingstone, home to one of 7 natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls, and offers many opportunities, both adrenaline filled and more sedate, to view this amazing site. Stanley Safari Lodge is located on the hills overlooking the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls.

The Lower Zambezi where Amanzi Camp is situated, is a key national park of Zambia, 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.

Last but not least on your Zambia Romance Safari is the unspoiled South Luangwa National Park, one of the finest ‘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. Luangwa River Camp is situated in a beautiful game rich area just outside the park.

Day 1 - 3: Stanley Safari Lodge

Your first stop on the Zambia Romance safari is none other than Livingstone, home to the Victoria Falls, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. The Victoria Falls is where the wide Zambezi River simply drops some 100 meters into a narrow gorge. The Falls lie across the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and Livingstone is the town on the Zambian side. Called "Mosi-oa-Tunya", (the smoke that thunders) in the local language the Falls are one of the seven wonders of the world and when you first come to Zambia, Livingstone is a must visit destination.

Set on a hill bordering the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and overlooking unspoilt bush, Stanley Safari Lodge is only three kilometer from the Victoria Falls. The views are splendid: the spray of the Falls in the distance, the mighty Zambezi River and on top of that yet another beautiful African sunset. Stanley Safari Lodge is an elegant and luxurious getaway. Apart from enjoying the lodge and its facilities, there are also a wide range of activities on offer in the area that can be booked at the lodge these include trips to see the falls, town museums and markets and sunset cruises. For the more adventurous, Livingstone boasts a whole host of adrenaline filled activities including whitewater rafting, bungee jumping and micro lighting. Or you may just wish to rest in camp and enjoy the spectacular scenery and peaceful atmosphere. It is up to you how you would like to spend your days here

Private: Amanzi

Day 4 - 6: Private: Amanzi

Lower Zambezi National Park is nestled between an impressive mountain escarpment to the north and the mighty Zambezi River to the south. The escarpment acts as a natural barrier for the wildlife, keeping it on the plains and in the rich woodland on the bank of the river. The park is over 4,000 square kms in size and occupies 120 kms of river frontage and is next on the Zambia Romance safari.

Situated on the banks of the Ngwenya channel is the rustic and charming Amanzi Camp. It is made up of 4 traditional, luxurious safari tents, positioned on a raised wooden deck allow for game to wonder around freely and to give you a magnificent view of the Lower Zambezi National Park. Where the Zambezi River and Mushika Flood Plain meet, is also the meeting spot for hundreds of animal species. Come morning or night, you’ll be greeted with an array of game from the comfort of your tent. Lower Zambezi is great for water based activities and during your stay you can enjoy an array of activities such as canoeing, boating and fishing with game drives and walking as a bonus. 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.

Luangwa River Camp

Day 7 - 9: Luangwa River Camp

The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. Luangwa River Camp sits nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa. This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor and a romantic feeling simply flows through the camp. It is the last stop on the Zambia Romance Safari

During your time at Luangwa River Camp, a typical day consists of 2 game activities per day, with the choice of a game drive or a walking safari. Early morning is best for doing walking safaris as well as game drives and commence after a light breakfast. Once brunch and a siesta followed by tea time treats, its back out into the park to see what the late afternoon/early evening has to offer. Alternatively a cultural tour or trip to a wildlife education centre can be arrange, which gives one a more holistic experience of the Luangwa Valley.

Itinerary of Zambia Romance by map

The accommodation is the best I have personally stayed in during my Zambia Romance safari. Everything ran absolutely seamlessly, and all the locations had an amazing staff compliment, delicious food and accommodation that took ones breath away! The wildlife which is what we came for, put on quite a show for us and every day was different from the previous, with so much more to see and do. Special mention to the Zambian guides who were just brimming with passion for the bush.
