This Lower Zambezi National Park safari includes 4 nights in a private lodge in the National Park with a range of activities including guided game drives, night game drives, walking safaris, boat cruises, fishing & canoeing.
Lower Zambezi National Park is Zambia’s newest national park but is quickly gaining a reputation as one of its best. With a river frontage of 120km, the valley floor and the Escarpment combined with the plateau gives the Lower Zambezi National Park magnificent picturesque scenery providing a memorable experience for any visitor. The best wildlife is on the flood plain and along the river itself and watching game from a boat in the river will be a major feature of your stay.
You have the choice of two fantastic lodges, Kanyemba Lodge and Sausage Tree Camp and both located on the mighty Zambezi River. Both lodges offer luxurious all inclusive accommodation and a wide array of game watching activities with Sausage Tree Camp having the added bonus of being located within the national park itself.

On arrival at Lusaka airport you will be met by your Wild Africa Travel Company representative and either transferred by road to Kanyemba Lodge or board your charter flight to Sausage Tree Camp. On arrival at your lodge you may want to undertake a night game drive or relax at your lodge enjoying a bush boma under the stars.
Your days can be as adventurous or as relaxing as you wish as you have the option of game drives with experienced guides through the park, walking safaris with experienced guides, guided canoe safaris or a guided fishing trip on the Zambezi River. You can also relax and wile away your time in the comforts of your lodge with its reading room, safari deck, bar, restaurant and swimming pool.
This morning after an early morning game drive you will be transferred by road or air to Lusaka for travel to your onward destination.
Built of natural materials, the chalets blend in perfectly with the surroundings, providing extreme comfort in the warmer months and a very high level of privacy throughout your stay. Each chalet has its own private verandah overlooking the Zambezi River, where early morning teas and espresso coffees or cappuccinos are delivered at the time of your requested wake up call.
Stunning ensuite bathrooms including state-of-the-art fittings and bright mirror lighting. Chalets also include walk in wardrobes with shelving, hanging rails, and room for storage.
All chalets have 220 V electricity, ceiling fans, and mosquito netting.
Overlooking the river the restaurant and bar allow spacious dinning while upstairs, guests can relax and enjoy the extensive library with a view. Each evening guests are treated to Kanyemba Lodge’s famous cuisine under the branches of a giant wild Mango Tree.
We also have a swimming pool with built-in benches that allow a retreat from the hotter hours of the day, whilst sipping a G&T watching the elephants at the opposite bank.
Sausage Tree Camp
Sausage Tree Camp has no boundaries and is ideally placed in the Lower Zambezi National Park, where the animals are free to wander straight through and around the camp making the comfort of your tent the ideal wildlife viewing sanctuary. Sausage Tree Camp hosts a maximum of sixteen guests, accommodated in seven large “Bedouin-style” tents dotted discreetly along the riverbank. The tents are spacious islands of cool minimalist style including solid Zambian teak furniture and sumptuous four-poster beds, each serviced by its own Muchinda (private butler). Each tent’s highlight is the unique open-air ensuite bathroom for which Sausage Tree Camp has become renowned – a luxurious “loo with a view”. The camp also offers a large swimming pool which is idyllically situated, overlooking the mighty Zambezi River! Imagine fine dining on the banks of the Zambezi River with a chorus of laughing hippo and the camp’s resident game directly in front. The dining and bar tents are perched on the river bank with outstanding views in 360 degrees. You will dine every evening on delicious dishes prepared by the camp’s Parisian trained, fine dining chef, Honore’ Kabongo (from the Congo).
This package is the perfect extension to the Victoria Falls package providing a safari experience in the world class but less crowded National Parks of Africa. See flight details for prices of Livingstone to Lusaka flights.
We have a range of Zambia tours & safaris available which can be customised with more or less nights as well as activities.
