The Great Zambian Journey The Great Zambian Journey

7 Nights

The Great Zambian Journey, will bring you heart-poundingly close to Africa's magnificent wildlife.

From enormous herds of elephants and buffaloes, to a myriad of antelope species as well as fantastic sightings of Africa's predators, the lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and more.

The romance and attraction of Zambia is in its remoteness and the vastness of her game reserves, where there is minimal human impact and the wildlife is plentiful.

When travelling in Zambia by light aircraft, the luggage limit is 12kg packed in a soft bag including hand luggage and photographic equipment.
