Guest relaxing by the boma with spectacular sunset at Chinzombo lodge

Zambia & Malawi

Great Rivers to Great Lakes

The route less travelled

There's far more to Zambia than just Victoria Falls, but let's start there, shall we? After a few days with us on the Zambezi River, head off in the direction of the remote South Luangwa valley for a riverside safari. Explore this region brimming with wildlife from Chinzombo Lodge, your base. End your journey in Malawi, a destination that has yet to attract scores of travellers - a quality making it all the more special. You'll be staying just across the border at the luxury beachside lodge of Kaya Mawa, found on Lake Malawi's Likoma Island.

Chinzombo, South Luangwa

The next leg of your journey takes you to the shores of the Luangwa River, one of the major tributaries of the Zambezi and one of Zambia’s biggest rivers. Beneath the shade of gigantic evergreen trees, Chinzombo is found, with its six painstakingly-designed villas each complete with a private pool overlooking the river. Let the calls of nature lull you to sleep at night after a day spent on walking safaris, trailing the wildlife here on foot.


Kaya Mawa, Malawi

From bush to beach, head to the palm-fringed shorelines of Likoma Island situated in the middle of Lake Malawi. Spend a few restful days at Kaya Mawa in a place described as one of the most romantic in the world by Condé Nast and Tatler. Welcome to one of the best beach getaways in Africa, with a myriad of activities on offer from snorkelling and scuba diving to sailing. Guests can also explore mountain biking trails and interact with the local communities alongside Kaya Mawa.
