Depart the UK
Arrive Lusaka & fly to Lower Zambezi National Park
On arrival at Lusaka, check in for your connecting scheduled flight to Jeki Airstrip, which takes just over half an hour.
At Jeki you will be met and transferred to your lodge, around an hour's drive away. There will be some time to relax after the journey before, then head out later in the afternoon for your first vehicle safari or other wildlife activity.
Accommodation: Chongwe River Camp, 4-nights
Game drives, walks or boat trips
Over the next three days the pattern of each day may vary a little according to the activities, but is essentially based on the same pattern: an early start with a light breakfast, followed by a morning vehicle safari, walk or boat trip, returning to camp in time for an early lunch. After some down time (and maybe a siesta?), you’ll take afternoon tea before setting out on a late afternoon activity.
It is possible that you might spend an entire day out in the bush - in which case you'll go equipped with an ample picnic lunch and cool drinks. In the early evening, following a sundowner out on the plains, you return to the camp by nightfall.
Fly to Lusaka & onward to the UK
This morning you rise early. After breakfast you will be transferred the short distance back to the airstrip in time for a flight to Lusaka and onward overnight connection back to the UK.
