The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

Acclimatise to life in Zambia by spending a day or two in Lusaka the capital city. Visit the markets and prepare as a team for your expedition.

Phase 2: Trek

Batoka Gorge trekking takes you along the Zambezi River, through its steep gorges and indigenous bush, passing by white water rapids. With such beautiful scenery during the day this trek is sure to bring you closer to nature and Zambian rural life. In Botswana teams can choose to trek in rural river valleys from village to village passing Livingstone’s tree and Bushmen’s rock paintings.

Phase 3: Project

Working with our partner charity, School Club Zambia teams can take part in school based projects. Projects in Zambia provide plenty of opportunity for interaction with local villagers and children. The SCZ works with a number of schools in Sinazongwe District, a peninsula on Lake Kariba, located in the Southern Province of Zambia. Teams can help with refurbishing school buildings, creating play areas, painting classroom walls or building animal shelters.

Phase 4: Culture & Review

Teams can choose to enjoy a safari in the spectacular Okavango Delta, and Chobe National Park in Botswana, which offer fantastic game spotting opportunities, including elephants, lions, hippos and giraffes. Any visit to Zambia would not be complete without visiting the spectacular Victoria Falls.

Expedition Grade

Our Zambia and Botswana adventure is graded as moderate or level 2. However, some easier and some more challenging days can be expected when trekking giving it an overall level of 1 to 3. The fitter you are the more you will enjoy your expedition.
