This trip combines two very different locations, each with their own attractions and beauty. Zambia is the home of the walking safari and the South Luangwa National Park is recognised as one of the best areas for seeing leopard and wild dog so makes for an active and exciting safari experience. Lake Malawi by comparison is a place to relax and unwind on the sandy beaches, snorkelling, kayaking and swimming in the fresh water just some of the activities to choose from.
Enjoy game drives and walking safaris.
Take a scenic light aircraft transfer between Zambia and Malawi.
Relax on the shores of Lake Malawi.
