Zambia remains one of the least known, but most surprising destinations to go on Safari. Perhaps due to a lack of publicity, Zambia is unknown to most, but offers a staggering diversity of wildlife and habitats to discover, making it the perfect destination for a short safari.
A destination to be discovered
Directly from Lusaka airport, we’ll fly to South Luangwa National Park, where in addition to lions, buffalo, antelope, giraffes, zebras and leopards you’ll also be able to spot African wild dogs. The park is also a refuge for birdlife, making it a paradise for bird watchers, with over 400 different species.
With a brief change of flight in the capital, we’ll head to Kafue National park, where we’ll head out onto the Busanga plains. Here, from August to October, you’ll have the opportunity to take a hot air balloon ride, offering an unparalleled view of the countryside below, with its herds of roan antelope, puku, gnu, zebra and buffalo, and their corresponding cortege of lions, cheetah and African wild dogs.
From here we’ll fly to Livingstone, heading overland to a campsite close to the Victoria Falls, where this short but rounded safari comes to an end.
Three reasons why
Making memories. A safari is simply an unforgettable experience. Having the privilege to explore some of the planets’ last remaining wilderness, and seeing the wildlife and countryside first hand, feels like being inside a nature documentary. Truly a one of a kind experience.
Perfect pictures. The sheer natural beauty of the landscapes, and being able to observe the unique wildlife up close, makes this a perfect experience for photographers of all levels.
Escape the mundane. For most, travel is an opportunity to break out of our routines, to disconnect and engage with the wider world. On safari you’ll be completely in the moment, away from screens and distractions, giving you the escape you need to return, recharged and energised.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of the savannah, the jungle or in the heart of the wild, at every point in your journey you’ll receive the comfort, luxury, privacy, top class attention to detail and organisation you’d expect, thanks to the exclusive lodgings and accommodations selected for you by Planeta Azul.
Because a luxury experience is only as exclusive as your surroundings
At Planeta Azul, we believe that the more extreme the experience, and more intense the emotions lived, the better you appreciate the finer things in life. Because the journey doesn’t end after a full day on Safari. Continue the adventure with a rejuvenating full body massage or beauty treatment, followed by dinner prepared by one of our skilled chefs. After dinner, unwind with top of the range leisure facilities before turning in for the night in luxury lodgings, with all the amenities you could wish for. A perfect end to a perfect day, setting you up perfectly to experience it all again tomorrow.
