Day 1

Arrival in Livingstone

As soon as you land at Livingstone's "Harry Mwanga Nkumbula" International Airport (LVI), we'll be there with a warm welcome, ready to whisk you away to the lodge. Once we're there, we'll get everything set for the upcoming 8-Day Sable Safari. You'll be chilling out in comfy rooms during your stay. 🛬🏠

Day 2

Mosi-oa-Tunya NP / Victoria Falls

Guess what? Livingstone's Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is home to Square-lipped Rhinos, also known as White Rhinos! Early in the morning, while it's still nice and cool, we'll hit up the national park for a walking safari. It's a fantastic opportunity to experience nature at ground level, check out some tracks, and chat about plants and their uses. Our mission? Get up close to some White Rhinos. After this active adventure, we'll chill out with a picnic by the river.

And of course, a visit to Livingstone wouldn't be complete without witnessing the majestic Victoria Falls, and that's exactly on the agenda for the afternoon.

Accommodations? You'll be resting your head in comfy rooms. As for lunch and dinner, you're the boss of your own accounts. 🦏🌳

Day 3-4

Southern Kafue National Park

Leaving Livingstone, the original capital of Northern Rhodesia, we're heading northward back to the wild. Our destination? The southern part of Kafue National Park, featuring Mopane and Teak woodlands, the Nanzhila Plains, and Lake Itezhi-Tezhi. Keep your eyes peeled for Buffaloes and Elephants! Fun fact: "Game Rangers International" runs Camp Phoenix in this area, a special spot for orphaned elephant babies. Day 4 brings us to feeding time for the little elephants, and we're excited to pay them a visit. Accommodations? Cozying up in our spacious canvas dome tents. 🏞️🐘

Day 5-6

Central Kafue National Park

Heading a bit more north within Kafue National Park now. This park is like Zambia's wildlife hotspot, the biggest and most diverse. Imagine it's as vast as Wales or Massachusetts. Since we're right within this wildlife haven, we roll on a game drive all the way to the next camp. Picture us crossing tiny creeks, cruising over hills, eyes peeled for any critters and feathered friends. Our camp nestles along the Kafue River, and we'll be chilling in our comfy large canvas dome tents. Day 6? More game drive loops on the agenda! 🌳🚙

Day 7


After our final breakfast in the wilderness, we'll pack up everything with a mix of nostalgia and excitement for the journey ahead. The drive out of Kafue National Park marks our last wildlife adventure on this safari. Once we hit the tarmac, we'll head east towards Lusaka. The grand finale of our 8-Day Sable Safari awaits in Lusaka, promising comfortable rooms for a good night's rest. 🌅🚙

Day 8

Departure / End of Safari

Following a cozy night at the lodge, we'll share our final breakfast together. Depending on your flight schedule, we can either explore some sights in Lusaka or simply kick back and relax. When it's time to bid farewell, we'll make sure you're smoothly transferred to Lusaka's "Kenneth Kaunda" International Airport (LUN) for your onward journey. 🌅🍳

  1. Dawn Lowery:

    Finished a terrific​ tour through KAFUE NP as part of a group of four with Daniel this morning. The tour was well thought out, combining comfortable camping in the remote National Park where the wild life was plentiful and the 4 days of camping comfortable. Daniel was personable and extremely knowledgeable about the habitats, names and behaviours of the animals and birds encountered. The food was wholesome, varied and catered for our individual needs, or mine to be exact. Two game drives a day combined with Daniel’s expertise meant that we sighted a vast array of wild life that surpassed our expectations. A commendable tour I would highly recommend.

  2. Linda Green:

    Had a fantastic tour with Daniel of Zamsato Tours. We are actually on our last day at Livingstone after a morning walking safari in Mosi Oa Tunga National Park and an afternoon walk on the tracks around the Victoria Falls. The highlight of our 8 day Kwalata Safari was the 4 days of camping at two sites in Kafue National Park, at Kasabushi Camp & Hippo Bay. Daniel’s expertise in guiding has made our trip (4 adults from Australia) truly memorable. He has extensive knowledge of the animal life we have observed, and not just the lion, elephant, wildebeest, impala, kudu, puku, rhinoceros that we saw, but also the numerous bird species. He is the guide, driver & chef providing us with basic but nutritious & plentiful food. But is his extensive knowledge of the Zambian environment that is his skill. We were usually alone in the sites that we visited as he explored the remote locations of central Kafue.
    We highly recommend using Zamsato Safaris.

  3. Richard Moore:

    Totally loved my Safari with Zamsato Ltd. As a single traveler its always difficult to go on these types of excursions on your own, but Daniel (owner of Zamsato) was a great guide and very easy to get along with. He took care of every detail of the safari and it was all meticulously planned. Daniel also has great knowledge of the habitat and wildlife ranging from the Elephants to the insects, and everything in between. I visited strait after the rains, so there was lush growth hiding the game, but Daniel still spots and points them out and he was far quicker with his camera than I was, so nothing was missed.
