Zambia, Mozambique & Malawi Map

     Includes »



     South Luangwa National Park

     North Luangwa National Park

     Lower Zambezi Valley

     Lake Kariba

     Kafue National Park

     Kasanka National Park

     Mutinondo Wilderness


     Nsumbu National Park

Get out into the bush where animals, both predators and prey, wander through unfenced camps, where night-time means swapping stories around the fire and where the human footprint is nowhere to be seen. The rewards of travelling in Zambia are those of exploring remote, mesmerising wilderness as full of an astonishing diversity of wildlife as any part of Southern Africa. Where one day you can canoe down a wide, placid river and the next raft through the raging rapids near world-famous Victoria Falls.

Though landlocked, three great rivers, the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi, flow through Zambia, defining both its geography and the rhythms of life for many of its people. For the independent traveller, however, Zambia is a logistical challenge, because of its sheer size, dilapidated road network and upmarket facilities. For those who do venture here, the relative lack of crowds means an even more satisfying journey.


Victoria Falls


     Includes »


     Livingstone Around


     Victoria Falls

Taking its place alongside the Pyramids and the Serengeti, Victoria Falls ( Mosi-oa-Tunya – the ‘smoke that thunders’) is one of Africa’s original blockbusters. And although Zimbabwe and Zambia share it, Victoria Falls is a place all of its own.

As a magnet for tourists of all descriptions – backpackers, tour groups, thrill seekers, families, honeymooners – Vic Falls is one of the earth’s great spectacles. View it directly as a raging mile-long curtain of water, in all its glory, from a helicopter ride or peek precariously over its edge from Devil’s Pools; the sheer power and force of the falls is something that simply does not disappoint.

Whether you’re here purely to take in the sight of a natural wonder of the world, or for a serious hit of adrenaline via rafting or bungee jumping into the Zambezi, Victoria Falls is a place where you’re sure to tick off numerous items from that bucket list.





     Includes »


     Limpopo National Park



     Bazaruto Archipelago




     Gurúè Mt Namúli

     Mozambique Island (Ilha de Moçambique)

     Lake Niassa (Lake Malawi)


     Quirimbas Archipelago

Mozambique beckons with its coastline and swaying palms, its traditions, its cultures, its vibe and – most of all – its adventure opportunities. This enigmatic southeast African country is well off most travellers’ maps, but it has much to offer those who venture here: long, dune-fringed beaches, turquoise waters abounding in shoals of colourful fish, well-preserved corals, remote archipelagos in the north, pounding surf in the south and graceful dhows with billowing sails. Add to this colonial-style architecture, pulsating nightlife, an endlessly fascinating cultural mix and vast tracks of bush populated with elephants, lions and birds galore. Discovering these attractions is not always easy, but it is unfailingly rewarding. Bring along some patience, a tolerance for long bus rides and a sense of adventure, and jump in for the journey of a lifetime.

     Liwonde National Park

     Survival Guide

Often dismissed as ‘Africa for beginners’, Malawi has long been viewed as an interloper at the table of great safari destinations. That is, until a lion reintroduction program commenced in 2012 and travel editors started salivating.

Aside from its animals, what immediately captures you about Malawi is its geographical diversity. Slicing through the landscape in a trough formed by the Great Rift Valley is Africa’s third largest lake – Lake Malawi; a shimmering mass of clear water, its depths are swarming with colourful cichlid fish. Whether it’s diving, snorkelling, kayaking or chilling out on one of its desert islands, a visit to the lake is a must.

Suspended in the clouds in Malawi’s deep south are the dramatic peaks of Mt Mulanje and the mysterious Zomba Plateau; both are a trekker’s dream, with mist-cowled forests and exotic wildlife. Head further north and you’ll witness the otherworldly beauty of Nyika Plateau, its rolling grasslands resembling the Scottish Highlands.
