Treasures of Zambia

Custom Travel | 9 Days
  • Safari excursions by canoe, foot, four-by-four, and helicopter
  • Top-notch camps and lodges, situated for sensational views
  • One of southern Africa’s wildest regions with bountiful wildlife
  • Insightful, personalized encounters with animals, from the Big Five to butterflies

This rare walking and canoeing safari explores the spectacular scenery, flora, and fauna of Zambia’s South Luangwa Valley, the Lower Zambezi, and Kafue National Park—all based from some of the continent’s most fetching and reposeful camps and small lodges. Alongside skilled safari guides, you’ll roam savannahs and floodplains by foot, open vehicle, boat, and helicopter, enjoying an unusually wide range of active options. There’s ample time for lazing at camp and gazing at African wildlife—elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo, and hundreds of bird species—as it flies, drifts, jaunts, and gallops nearby.

Trip Overview

From the moment I landed, everything was seamless, including all the travel between safari camps—no small task considering there are no real roads in the bush. The camps GeoEx chose were eco-friendly, had great amenities and an extremely knowledgeable staff, and were in prime locations.


Fly from Lusaka to the South Luangwa Valley and settle into a lodge situated between the Muchinga escarpment and the mighty Luangwa River.

2 – 5

Highly personalized bush camp adventures get you intimate with the landscape and its inhabitants, from meandering termites to a bee-eater snaring a butterfly to hippos lazing in a lagoon.

6 – 8

Fly to Lower Zambezi National Park to track herds of elephants on foot, revel in moonlit game drives, and perhaps witness a hunting pride of lions.


Return to Lusaka or extend your trip to Kafue National Park for outings on the Busanga Plains (call for details).



For a more private, personalized, and flexible safari, we'll line up your own dedicated guides, game-viewing vehicles, and excursions. Options abound to make your safari even more exclusive, from romantic picnics and trips by private plane to a private mobile safari.
