This deluxe 4 day Sussi and Chuma Zambezi adventure safari take you to the treetops of Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma Lodge on the Zambezi River, where you will be introduced to the region's natural wonders. During your 4-day safari in Zambia's Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, you will encounter African wildlife like never before during the various excursions that have been designed to introduce you to the untamed bush.
Upon arrival at Livingstone Airport, now known as Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport, you will be welcomed to Zambia by a representative who will escort you on a road transfer to Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma, named after two of explorer David Livingstone's friends. As you enter the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, absorb the natural sights, sounds and smells of the bush. The lodge is nestled on a bend in the Zambezi River, affording spectacular views of the famous river and its lush vegetation.
Settle into your tree-house suite and enjoy the modern amenities provided by this Zambia safari lodge. From your private deck you have exceptional views of the Zambezi River and elephants frolicking in the water is not an uncommon sight. After you have had some time to relax, enjoy your first game drive in an open 4x4 safari vehicle with a trained safari guide. Game drives take place in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park and common wildlife sightings include elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, baboon, and the river residents, hippo and crocodile. Bird species in the park are also abundant. Your safari will be concluded with sundowners and canapés in a remote spot in the bush, admiring the magical African sunset.
For the next two days of your Zambezi adventure you have a wide range of activities to choose from including a walking tour of the mighty Victoria Falls and a cultural experience visiting the local Nakatindi village. Locally, the Falls are known as Mosi-oa-Tunya ("the smoke that thunders"), and were introduced to Europe as the Victoria Falls by explorer David Livingstone.
Other activities to choose from include a two-hour canoeing excursion on the Zambezi River. As you paddle your way across the horizon, absorb the tranquility of the water as you view the landscapes of Zambia. For more wildlife encounters participate in a walking safari, game drive or a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi river. After cruising through grade 2 rapids and enjoying light sprays on your face, the boat will stop on the beach for a sundowner cocktail, in full view of the spectacular sunset.
After a long day of exploring, why not relax during a visit to the safari spa for some pampering treatments? In the evenings when you return to your safari lodge, freshen up before you make your way to the main lodge area to enjoy pre-dinner drinks at the raised bar area. Delicious meals will be served in the open air dining area, comforted by the warmth of a blazing campfire. Enjoy leisurely evenings outdoors in admiration of the canopy of stars, before returning to your luxurious tree-house.
Wake up to the sounds of an increasingly active bush life as you prepare for a final game drive safari in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. After breakfast bid farewell to the Zambezi River and photograph the spectacular landscapes one last time as you are transferred to Livingstone to meet your onward travel arrangements.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
