Day 0 – Arrival, test drive & briefing
Your plane lands in Lusaka, you get out and feel the oppressive heat for the first time and think you could cut the air. After all formalities have been clarified, we head off with our own transfer to the Luangwa Safari Lodge in Kabwe, our home base. You can expect cold beer and a hot grill.
You can also take a short test ride with your motorbike to get a feel for the upcoming days.
Tag 1 – Leopard Hill Cave & Farm
We start with our bikes at dawn and head to the Leopard Hill Cave, where we will camp for the first time. Of course, we are not on the paved road, but make our way through rocky gravel slopes. A stopover at a farm rounds off this stage.
We do some wild camping near a bat cave tonight, which you can enter if you’re brave enough.
Day 2 – Over Leopard Hill Road
Downhill is the name of the game: The infamous Leopard Hill Road can hardly be called a road. We go over some tricky passages down into the Lower Zambezi Valley. The view extends far to the horizon, but you should also take good care of the stones in front of you. In the evening we set up camp either in an abandoned camp or in a lodge with a tent site.
Tag 3 – Chongwe Falls
We continue from our camp to Chongwe Falls, where we camp for 1 or 2 nights under a giant tree. You can go on an evening walking safari or take a jeep to the Lower Zambezi National Park for a night safari.
Day 4 – Gwabi Lodge & boat cruise
Out of the deep bush! We continue to Gwabi Lodge, which specializes on activities regarding the Zambezi River. We set up our tents, jump into the pool and take a river cruise on the majestic Zambezi in the evening.
Tag 5 – Day off with options
Today we keep all options open: Whether it might be a round trip in the area around the lodge, along the Kafue, just relaxing or something completely different. It’s up to the group. Let yourself be surprised!
Day 6 – On to the Pioneer Lodge & Camp
We start the return journey from the valley to the Pioneer Lodge & Camp. Do you want to camp again or do you prefer a cozy chalet? That is entirely up to you. You should definitely cool off again in the pool before going on the plane the next day.
Day 7 – Transfer to the airport
It is hard to say goodbye – after a few warm and sweaty hugs, the group returns to the airport in Lusaka.
Day X – Back to Reality
Welcome back – wherever you came from. Take some time to get back to normal. And if it doesn’t work out, talk to us and we will plan your next trip.
