Kafue. The next 3 nights we stay within the Kafue National Park. Found in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It covers a massive 22,400 km2. First established as a National Park in the 1950’s by the legendary Norman Carr, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Camping at Kafue for these 3 nights will give as the opportunity to experience African nature first-hand. We will make use of our own 4×4 vehicle to explore the wilderness of Kafue and surge for that perfect photo. Open vehicle safaris can be arranged from our accommodation as an optional activity. Mayukuyuku Lodge (Camping – interactive)
Day 5 and 6
Leaving Kafue behind we find our way, via Lusaka to Lower Zambezi. Stocking up on supplies for the next few days at our self-catering accommodation.
This Park is still relatively undeveloped, it’s beauty lying in it’s wilderness state. The diversity of animals is not as wide as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular. The Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the Zambezi River is a massive wildlife sanctuary.
The River’s edge is overhung with a thick riverine fringe, including ebony and fig trees. Further inland is a floodplain fringed with mopane forest and interspersed with Winterthorn trees and huge Vachellia. The hills which form the backdrop to the Park are covered in broadleaf woodland. Lower Zambezi Lodge (Self Catering)

In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
