18-Day Kokomo Safari - Sable antelope

The Kokomo Safari is our tented safari with focus on the vast Kafue NP and the pristine wilderness of Liuwa Plain NP. This is your chance to witness the 2nd largest wildebeest migration in Africa. It takes place in Liuwa. Kafue is the oldest and largest national park in Zambia. In addition it is the most diverse in terms of habitats and animal species. Lastly we will visit Mosi-oa-Tunya NP  where we track White Rhinos on foot. This is the only place in Zambia where this can be done. The 18-Day Kokomo Safari is ideal for solo travelers, families and tiny groups. The safari starts and ends in Lusaka. Therefore it can be easily extended to Lower Zambezi (->Zambezi Bush Break) and / or South Luangwa (->Luangwa Bush Break).
