Something For Everybody Safari
This 8 night family safari will be a fast favorite with all members of the clan.
You’ll start with a 2 night stay at the Vic Falls Safari Suite on a Bed & Breakfast basis. A complimentary shuttle bus service transports guests to the Victoria Falls Rainforest and town centre (village market and Victoria Falls) on an hourly basis throughout the day. This allows you and your family plenty time to explore the rainforest and take in the wondrous sights of Victoria Falls. Complimentary activities on the resort are nature trails as well as the Vulture Culture Experience.
After packing your things and checking out of Vic Falls Safari Suite, you will enjoy a short scenic flight to the treasured and wild Mana Pools, spending the next 3 nights at Nyamatusi Camp on a Fully Inclusive basis, with two activities each day. Set in one of the wildest and most remote parts of Africa, on the banks of one of the oldest rivers in the world, Nyamatusi allows guests to experience an authentic view of the old untouched Africa. Activities include walking safaris and game drive, led by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you.
After a charter flight you will land across the border into Zambia. You will be taken to Anabezi’s luxury tented camp for the last 3 nights on a Fully Inclusive basis. At Anabezi, the Zambezi River and Mushika Flood Plain meet, and is also the meeting spot for hundreds of animal species. Come morning or night, you’ll be greeted with an array of game from the comfort of your tent. A stay at Anabezi is the perfect conclusion to your 8 night safari expedition.

Take Your Family On The Luxurious Adventure of a Lifetime
Explore exciting Cape Town, unspoilt Zambia, and family favourite Malawi for 10 nights in luxury (without the high price tag) on this carefree holiday for yourself and the kids.
After landing in Cape Town, you will be picked up and taken to Ellerman House, located in Bantry Bay. The small, privately owned hotel offers spectacular Atlantic Ocean views against the dramatic backdrop of Lion’s Head. You will spend the first 3 nights of your African family adventure here in luxury, inclusive of a delicious breakfast to get each day started. From art exhibitions and wine tasting, to delightful local cuisine and pristine service, to the tranquil spa for all your beauty and relaxation needs, Ellerman House has it all covered. On the final day, after checking out, you will be transferred back to Cape Town airport for a flight to Johannesburg and a connection to Zambia.
Upon arrival into Lusaka, you will connect on a flight to the South Luangwa. From here you’ll be taken to Robin’s House for the next 3 nights on a Fully Inclusive basis. The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa – a claim which is not an overstatement. It is through this 9050 sq kilometer National Park that the great meandering Luangwa river runs, with its oxbow lagoons, tributaries, and riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds. Robin’s House is a small, private and exclusive house on the banks of the Luangwa River, ideal for young families or friends seeking a more indulgent type of safari. This two bedroom house with main living area provides a shady and cool retreat from the African midday heat and if that is not enough there is a stunning plunge pool to soak in whilst looking over the Luangwa River.
Catch a short flight across the border into Malawi, to combine your family bush and beach experience. Guests can relax (or play!) on the sandy beach and enjoy an elevated view of the lake from the stylish infinity pool. For those seeking some activity we offer water-skiing, sailing, kayaking, walks in the hills, sunset cruises on a hand built dhow as well as pristine snorkeling and diving. Underwater activities never fail to amaze as the diversity of fish is very surprising. Experts say that this lake is home to more native fish species than any other in the world. Pumulani offers the perfect mix for a memorable holiday. Your stay will be Full Board, with all non motorized water sport activities (these include fishing, sailing, nature/village walks, sunset cruises on the dhow, kayaking).
