Kate & Steve honeymooned in Zambia & Mozambique in January 2016...

From the game rich South Luangwa following the mighty Zambezi all the way down to Victoria Falls... From Livingstone travel to Lilongwe and onto the remote shores of Lake Malawi; this is a true "Out of Africa" experience focusing on excellent big five game viewing, fine dining, true 5 star spa experiences as well as the ultimate in barefoot luxury in a tranquil eco-paradise in Mozambique.

HONEYMOON OVERVIEW

** The following is the itinerary created for Kate & Steve, however we will design an itinerary that meets your individual wishes and requirements:

DAY 1 – 4

Upon arrival into Lusaka Airport, you will be met and transferred by plane to Mfuwe Airport. There you will be greeted by a driver and transferred by road to Sanctuary Puku Ridge, where you will stay for 3 nights. The location of Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp is out of this world. Up on a hill, the views over the floodplain are magnificent and from the comfort of camp guests can witness herds gathering and predators hunting. South Luangwa is one of the most game-rich areas of Africa and lion, leopard and all of the Big 5 are seen regularly. Accommodation is in luxury tents each with indoor and outdoor showers and by staying there you will be doing your bit for the surrounding communities and schools.  The primary reason to visit the South Luangwa National Park is the outstanding game viewing. This is the place to spot leopard and the park is said to the place where walking safaris began. Night drives, early morning drives, sunset drives… it’s all about the big game.

Day 4 – 7

On day four you will transfer via light aircraft from Mfuwe Airport to Royal Airstrip with a 5 minute road transfer to Royal Zambezi Lodge.  A small but spacious luxury lodge and spa close to one of Zambia’s greatest wildlife viewing destinations. Immerse yourself in the wilderness with the sights and sounds of the bush and the mighty Zambezi river on your doorstep. Vistas stretch far along the river and the lodge’s luxurious facilities and pampering treatments allow for a truly memorable, indulgent and relaxing stay.There are 15  thatched tents with fantastic vistas of the surrounding landscape. Exquisitely furnished with fine linens, designer arm-chairs, all required comforts, they are elegant and provide the ultimate relaxing retreat.  Take a game drive from the lodge into the Lower Zambezi National Park to witness big game at it’s best from the open sided vehicles. The river also offers a huge array of activities from fishing, hiking, canoeing, river safaris. Get culturally immersed in the local villages or simply relax by the pool and take in the sights and sounds of the bush.

Day 7 – 9

Voted The Best Safari Lodge in Zambia at the World Travel Awards, Royal Chundu sits on a private stretch of the Zambezi, allowing guests to feel a tranquil solitude like nowhere else in Africa. The first and only lodge in Zambia to achieve Relais & Chateaux status, guests are treated to excellence in service, a sumptuous gastronomic experience and lavish accommodation. River Lodge comprises 10 exquisite villas dotted along the banks of the river  & Island Lodge, with 4 ultra-luxurious villas on a private island on the Zambezi, is 4kms from the main lodge. Canoeing on the Zambezi, past families of hippo & crocodiles resting on the banks, you guide will take you through the breathtaking riverine landscape to a picnic place underneath the jackalberry trees. Alternatively take a boat cruise or motorised canoe. Birding safaris, Katombora Island Walks, Private Picnics and cultural encounters can also be arranged from the lodge, and you can enjoy a signature treatment in their lavish spa.  On day nine you will be transferred via road to Livingstone Airport for your onward travel.

Day 9 – 14

From Livingstone you will fly directly via scheduled charter into Lilongwe Airport.  From here a charter boat will take you across onto the shores of the beautiful Lake Malawi.  You will spend the next five nights in paradise at Nkwichi.  Nkwichi Lodge is an eco-friendly paradise on the unspoilt secluded shores of Lake Malawi. Off-the-grid, it is a tranquil escape with 8 private coves with white sand and clear water where guests can kick of their shoes & enjoy snorkelling, kayaking and swimming. Nkwichi is highly involved with the local communities and volunteer experiences can be arranged, helping to preserve their local Nyanja culture. An unforgettable destination that is totally off-the-beaten-track. Exclusive chalets designed with elegant simplicity and all the 5* comforts provided, this is a hidden gem of Southern Africa.  On day fourteen you will depart Lake Malawi to Lilongwe Airport for your own onward travel arrangements.
