If you fancy some time alone to enjoy a romantic game drive or meal, leave it to us to entertain the kids with a quiz or fishing challenge.
After a final breakfast at Tongabezi you will be transferred to Livingstone to catch your flight to Lusaka and then onto the Royal Airstrip ahead of your next destination… Chongwe River House, which really is one-of-a-kind. A truly unique private house set within the beautiful wilderness of the Lower Zambezi. In between game drives, you can choose to relax by the pool, have a fresh meal prepared or explore the area with one of the many personalised activities on offer. Whether you want to go on a game drive, a river safari or spend a morning fishing, your stay is completely tailored to you!
A stunning private house with airy, luxurious rooms in the Luangwa valley. Situated on the edge of a lagoon you will never be far from a herd of elephants, giraffe or impalas coming to cool down or get an afternoon drink. Relax and watch the world of nature go by from the balcony or cool off from the afternoon heat in your own plunge pool. One thing’s for sure – you will feel completely at ease here. With a personal team to see to your every need, Luangwa River House offers a perfect spot for your family safari getaway.
Today you will be leaving the bush of Zambia… after breakfast the team will transfer you to Mfuwe to catch your flight to Likoma island via Lilongwe. Here you will stay at Ndomo point on the south westerly point of the island offering you a private space of unrivalled island paradise. The clear turquoise water is perfect for a spot of snorkelling among the hundreds of coloured cichlids. Get active with the family doing some kayaking, sailing or waterskiing and then sit back and enjoy the renowned sunsets from your own balcony with a sundowner. It doesn’t get much more idyllic than this…
After breakfast it’s time to say goodbye to island life, until next time. Your guide will take you to the airport at Likoma island for your flight back to Lilongwe and your onward journey… hopefully all complete with memories of a truly unforgettable family holiday,
