Slender Mongoose Safari

Slender Mongoose Safari: In full

This luxurious safari spends five nights in the middle of the bush, staying at two lovely camps in Lower Zambezi National Park – here you will have a variety of activities on offer from 4WD game drives to walking and river safaris; it's a great trip for keen safari-goers who wish to explore the park while enjoying superb accommodation.

Note that the bushcamp, Old Mondoro, only opens from mid-April to mid-November, when Zambia's weather is generally fine and dry. This safari is not possible during the rest of the year.
