Photo journey through Zambia, Africa

Some of my best friends just returned from a trip to Zambia. Their first stop was at the Flatdogs Camp in South Luangwa National Park, where they stayed in a bush tent with a hippo-filled river nearby.

They also had a pool where vervet monkeys liked to hang out and steal toiletries from unsuspecting campers.

They took a sunrise game drive where they saw giraffe, impala, puku, elephants, lots of birds, lions and zebra.

They watched the sunset over the Luangwa River.

Their next stop was the Mfuwe Lodge and Bush Spa, where they enjoyed a pool and spa day fit for African queens.

After cocktails at sunset, they took a night-drive, where they were lucky enough to witness a lion kill.

Following another morning game drive, they made their way to Kapamba Bushcamp, complete with a A 7,000 litre tub for soaking, which also happened to be full of frogs. They wandered to the Kapamba River to watch hippos basking in the sun and baboons backpacking their babies.

They spent sunset at the fork of the Luangwa and Kapamba rivers.

After dark (and more cocktails) they went crocodile searching, played with a frustrated chameleon, and saw feeding lions.

Their next stop was Zigzag BnB in Livingstone, and they were soon on their way via helicopter to Victoria Falls.

They then dried off and took a sunset cruise up the Zambezi River, where they witnessed their last African sunset and bade farewell to the wonders of the amazing country of Zambia.

  1. This reminds me of the honeymoon that my wife and I went on to South Africa. Were both adventurous people and so we decided to go on a South African safari. We had such a great time; we went on safari for five days and then visited Cape Town and Table Top Mountain. A truly unforgettable time!

  2. Sounds like an amazing honeymoon destination! Africa has always been on my top travel destination list, and I hope to get there soon, to volunteer with wildlife there and to visit the conservation projects of some of the international organizations I've worked with.

  3. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing. Desert Safari Dubai
