Adventure Itinerary

DAY 1

We meet at Namwi Island Camp near the Namibian town of Katima Mulilo. The evening will be spent socialising around the fire and getting to know each other as the sun sets over the Zambezi River.

DAY 2

We make an early start after breakfast, and after everyone has been given handheld two-way radios, we leave for Katima Mulilo in Namibia. We refuel in Katima and cross the border into Zambia. As the border post procedures here can take a while, we will only be travelling a further 115 km to our next overnight stop at Kabula Lodge campsite. We'll go on a  sundowner boat cruise on the Zambezi River before dinner. 

DAY 3

Today we visit a well-kept secret of the Zambezi River, the Ngonya Waterfall. It’s not as big as the Vict Falls but it's wilder and you won't have to share it with hundreds of other tourists. We spend another night at the Kabula Lodge campsite.

DAY 4

We head into Mongu to shop and refuel after which we say goodbye to civilization for a while. We will travel westward onto the 50 km-wide Zambezi floodplain. En route we pass the winter residence of the king of the Lodzi people and see his royal canoes. The canoes form part of the colourful Kambuka Ceremony, when the king paddles from his winter home to higher ground for summer. Our accommodation for the next three days is a rustic bush camp in the great outdoors.

Liuwa herds

DAYS 5 & 6

After a good night’s rest and a hearty breakfast, we make our way to Liuwa Plains National Park. We break our convoy into smaller groups to facilitate better game viewing. We will spend the next two days in Liuwa Plains enjoying panoramic landscapes, wildebeest in their thousands and, with luck, the predators that prey on them.

DAY 7

We say goodbye to Liuwa Plains National Park. However, there’s more adventure in store for you as we head west to Kafue National Park, our home for the next four nights. We once again restock and refuel in Mongu.

DAYS 8, 9 & 10

We spend the next three days exploring Kafue National Park. You will have the opportunity to enjoy the park at your own leisure with a packed lunch. We will sleep in the two park campsites, and explore the Kasabushi and Nanzhila Plains areas. We will also do a boat cruise on the Kafue River.

DAY 11

Today we travel south through the park, making our way to the popular town of Livingstone for our last night together. Over dinner there'll be a last opportunity to reminisce about the adventures and fun we all had.

DAY 12

After a breakfast, we must sadly say our goodbyes and go our different ways.

Yes, I want to go!
