After saying farewell to the friendly staff at Chicele, jet into the Lower Zambezi National Park and your next accommodation, The Royal Zambezi Lodge. Settle in and take stock of your wild surroundings and plan the next few days of your safari.
The Royal Zambezi is an award-winning but unpretentious lodge located on the banks of the Zambezi River in a private concession. With a host of exciting activities to choose from, you are guaranteed an exceptional experience: thrilling big-game encounters vie with canoeing the pristine waters teeming with hippos and crocodiles or hiking the surrounding mountains. Once you have had your fill of adventure, the Royal Bush Spa - Zambia's first 'bush spa' - offers the perfect retreat to revitalise your body and senses. Or you could honour the lodge's well-worn tradition of 'DNA' - that's, 'Do nothing at all'.
The Lower Zambezi National Park is, of course, one of the region's best reserves. Home to large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and lion, the game viewing is excellent and you will have a variety of activities to choose from: explore the area on day and night game drives, guided nature walks, exciting boat cruises and even from a canoe as you slowly paddle downstream.
On your final day, transfer back to Royal Airstrip for your flight to Lusaka. Your exhilarating tour will end on arrival in the nation's capital.
