Dive straight into this ultimate trip through Zambia and Madagascar. Combining some of Africa’s most exclusive and awe-inspiring locations, taking you on the path less travelled with unique personally curated experiences in the upmost of luxury and unique splendour. We will take you to the best kept secrets of the South Luangwa National Park with its first-class game viewing before hopping over to Madagascar to be spoilt on the idyllic island sanctuary of Miavana.

  1. Fly to Mfuwe Airport via Kenneth Kaunda International Airport


  2. Days 1-5: South Luangwa National Park

    Touch down into Zambia’s capital Lusaka, where you will be whisked off by light aircraft to the wild and remote South Luangwa National Park.  You will spend the next five nights at Chinzombo, an ultra-chic and elegant safari camp on the banks of the Luangwa River. No expense has been spared when designing the camp, with all six private villas boasting large pools and sun decks with incredible views across the valley, stylish yet artfully opulent. Treat yourself to some yoga and spa treatments or a just lie back on your shady deck, binoculars in hand to see who ambles down to the river for drink.

    Days at Chinzombo revolve around wildlife whether you are out on a guided game drive in search of the elusive leopard, or on a walking safari identifying animal tracks, getting close up to an unperturbed zebra grazing on the plains. Enjoy evenings around the campfire, exchanging stories with your fellow explorers and dine under the stars as the sound of cicadas come alive in the bush around you.  Head out under the starry skies for a special night drive to have a secret insight into what the animals get up to at night.

    Accommodation: Chinzombo (4 nights)

  3. Days 5-10: Nosy Be Archipelago

    Rise early the following morning for your flight from Johannesburg to Nosy Be, a small island off Madagascar’s north west coast where your helicopter awaits your arrival. Only accessible by helicopter, fly over the turquoise waters to the exclusive luxury island hideaway of Miavana. This is paradise found. This is not simply an exquisite beach lodge on an untouched island, it offers all the adventures you'd expect on a safari, with wildlife, activities and adventures galore - something which truly sets it apart as a destination. 

    Days are tailored to your own personal wishes, where the options are limitless.  Head out for an early morning scuba dive discovering the underwater paradise, abundant with marine life, or heli hop across to a neighbouring island to explore on foot the vegetated forests home to the Golden Crowed Sifaka lemur and other unique wildlife species. The waters around Miavana are a fisherman's paradise. Go out on one of the state of the art boats, or take a helicopter to search for big game species including giant trevally, bluefin, sail fish and barracuda all waiting to be caught... and released.  Miavana is the ultimate island paradise creating memories which will last a lifetime.

    Accommodation: Miavana (5 nights)

  4. Fly home from Antananarivo Airport


  • Green Season Walking Safaris

    Take a boat trip to one of Nosy Ankao's neighbouring islands where you will be accompanied by an expert nature guide as you go in search of the endemic golden crowned sifaka, Perrier's sifaka and crowned lemur as well as a variety of other fauna.
