There is a safari experience for everyone, from boat trips up the Zambezi to bush rides and elephant-back safaris. By day, you can maivel at herds of elephant, buffalo, lion, giraffe, zebra and antelope; if you’re lucky, you may spot one of five white rhinos. If you want to venture further afield, take a trip to Chobe in Botswana, home to a staggering 45,000 elephants. Back in Zambia, visitors will discover a birdwatcher’s paradise with more than 750 species, including the rare shoebill stork found in the Bangweulu Wetlands.
For those who like action and adventure, white-water rafting, river boarding, bungee jumping, abseiling and microlighting are all easily accessible. Quieter pursuits include river cruises, game drives, cycling and riding. At the end of such adventure-filled days, you return to The
Royal Livingstone for the ultimate African Experience at the authentic boma, to dine around a roaring fire under the African skies.
