OVERLOOKING VICTORIA FALLS

Livingstone, Zambia is renowned for the impressive Victoria Falls, recognized as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Over one mile wide, Victoria Falls is the most expansive curtain of water in the world and drops more than 328 feet into the sheer Zambezi Gorge. Located in the southwest corner of Zambia, these falls and the Zambezi River are the central points in an area of spectacular scenic beauty.

Sausage Tree Camp, Lower Zambezi, Zambia

A UNIQUE WILDLIFE SETTING

Both Sausage Tree Camp and Potato Bush Camp are within the Lower Zambezi National Park. The Lower Zambezi Valley is a huge rift in the earth's crust, through which the Zambezi River flows, providing attraction for wildlife. The landscape is beautiful: tall leadwoods, ebonies, acacias and figs stand on a carpet of rich grassland. But the main attraction is the area's game, including leopards, lions, elephants, hippos and other wildlife. Sausage Tree Camp overlooks an expanse of narrow channels and low-set reed islands teeming with game, with the magnificent Zambezi escarpment as the backdrop.

DAYS 10-12: THURSDAY - SATURDAY, AUGUST 20 - 22, 2015 SERENGETI NORTH, TANZANIA

After a short flight from camp, board your private jet to Mwanza in northern Tanzania and board a scenic bushflight to your Serengeti camp where you will be hosted by Bushtracks' owners David and Carolyn Tett. The Lamai Serengeti camp is tucked among the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje, and just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River on the famed Great Migration. This is also prime predator habitat. Enjoy game drives and walking safari, or simply take in panoramic Serengeti views from your room's veranda.lamia_bedroom_serengetiLamai Serengeti, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

PRIME MIGRATION VIEWING

Lamai Serengeti sits tucked among the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River. For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, this is where you'll find the migration. Lamai Serengeti features 12 rooms in all. The rooms are designed to maximize the panoramic views, but also to give a window onto life on the kopje. In short, at Lamai, you can be as busy as you like with game drives and walks, or as lazy as you like enjoying the Serengeti from your room or the swimming pool.
