Safari in your strideVictoria Falls, Zambia
Take a walk on the wild side in Zambia. Your adventure begins at Victoria Falls, where 540 million litres of water thunder over a precipice each minute. Next, try your luck at glimpsing another of Africa’s wonders, the white rhino, while hiking upriver past zebras and giraffes in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. After catching a flight a thousand kilometres to the north-east, you’ll meet with an expert guide who will lead you through South Luangwa National Park on foot.
Your next five days will be spent tracking elephants, giraffes, hippos and lions through some of the most pristine land on the continent under their watchful eye. Dust and heat might become the norm, but nights will be spent in luxury. And as you watch wildlife wander by your canvas tent at Tena Tena Camp (the name translates to ‘temporary home’), you’ll wish you were a permanent fixture.
