Has your family ever stayed in a crocodile's nest? This safari to Zambia includes Victoria Falls and the ‘Croc Nest’ at Flatdogs in the South Luangwa. Voted as Africa's best value property, this is top safari at a great price!

This two-part trip is available for families with children aged 8 years and over. You begin the holiday close to both Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Victoria Falls. This location provides a great range of experiences – and there’s 50 per cent off the accommodation cost for children aged under 12 years! The second part of the trip is spent in the Mfuwe region of the South Luangwa National Park. Here, you will enjoy great game viewing in your own vehicle, as well as visiting a local school!

The properties we use are Waterberry Lodge and Flatdogs Croc Nest. Waterberry is a charming little lodge situated just over 20 kilometres upstream from Victoria Falls – in our view, this is one of the best settings of all properties in the area! And Flatdogs Croc Nest is a spacious tented property at Flatdogs Camp, on the banks of the Luangwa river. Opened in 2015, it has a nice homely feel – and its own swimming pool!
