Day 1
Luangwa, Zambia
Chinzombo Camp Dinner

Ker & Downey's Zambia family safari begins in one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, South Luangwa National Park. Deep in the heart of the park is the beautiful riverside family villa of Chinzombo Camp, a place where the wildlife is abundant and viewed year-round from the private deck and plunge pool. Modern architecture meets unwieldy nature in all of Chinzombo Camp’s six luxury villas, where steel-frame structures and expansive open plans are paired with recycled composite timber for the flooring, raw linen décor, and beautiful reed-work.

Day 2
Luangwa, Zambia
Chinzombo Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

In addition to the game drives and walking safaris on offer, Chinzombo also has an extensive menu of child-friendly activities, from bush ranger courses and Zambian language lessons to traditional meal demonstrations and visits to local villages for games of football with the school children.

Day 3
Luangwa, Zambia
Chinzombo Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

The African bush holds so many treasures for youngsters, and Chinzombo's private guides will gladly ensure that the length and content of every safari outing ideally suits each family. With 60 acres of private land on the banks of the Luangwa River in one of Africa’s most game-rich areas, game drives and walking safaris at Chinzombo are thrilling all year-round.

Day 4
Luangwa, Zambia
Chinzombo Camp Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Teaming up with the best guides and hosts in the business, Ker & Downey has tailored this Zambia safari specifically to those traveling with children, providing families with their own safari schedules, guides, meal times, menus, and private accommodations for their utmost comfort.

Day 5
Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Chongwe River House Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Your family safari transfers to the lesser-known wilderness reservoir of Lower Zambezi National Park. Chongwe River House—an exclusive-use private home—is the perfect safari base for any family. Reminiscent of an open-air Flintstones home, Chongwe pairs flexible schedules and the utmost privacy with an array of dedicated guides, vehicles, boats, canoes, scouts, and chefs.

Day 6
Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Chongwe River House Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Chongwe River House is a haven of space with plenty of indoor and outdoor areas for lounging and relaxing. Swimming in the large outdoor pool or simply resting in the sitting room brings with it unbelievable animal encounters as the wildlife congregates along the Chongwe River. The Chongwe region is especially famous for its huge herds of elephants, who are often in full view feeding, drinking, and playing in the river.

Day 7
Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Chongwe River House Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

The surrounding wilderness of the Lower Zambezi is teeming with big game and cultural heritage, but many are simply content sitting on the deck and soaking in the quiet and iconic beauty. Canoeing on the rivers, fishing with the guides, and visits to nearby villages are all possible in addition to the game drives and walking excursions available.

Day 8

For the most part, everything Ker & Downey did for our trip was outstanding! The accommodations were incredible, the people we encountered at each stop were definitely an asset to the trip, and the travel arrangements were efficient and flawless! While there were a few little things we would have tweaked, the trip ran very smoothly and we had a fantastic experience. While we asked a gazillion questions, there were a few things that we didn't know to anticipate and might have benefited from a little more upfront instruction or knowledge but the overall experience was 5 star!

Ker and Downey is a great agency to use for international travel. We had a great experience with this company, and their connections in South America were courteous and hospitable. I would highly recommend using KD if you are traveling to a new place, and are needing assistance with transportation and tours!
