In the footsteps of Livingstone.

During his historic explorations of the river systems of Malawi, the Zambezi Valley and the Luangwa Valley, David Livingstone is reputed to have declared “I will make this land better known to men that it may become one of their haunts. It is impossible to describe its luxuriance”.

We are delighted to bring to you this offer of 14 nights combining the excitement of the Victoria Falls with Zambia’s best game-viewing destinations plus the tranquility and beauty of Lake Malawi taking in the most exclusive small camps in Zambia and Malawi allowing you to retrace Livingstone’s footsteps in independent, owner-operated camps offering an unrivaled level of service and experience.

Combine four exciting and very different destinations and a variety of activities - white water rafting at the Falls, canoeing and fishing in the Lower Zambezi, walking and driving safaris in the Luangwa Valley and swimming in the crystal clear waters of Lake Malawi with outstanding food, award winning guides, remote wilderness and breath-taking adventure to create an unforgettable safari experience.
