Zambia

  • Sue and Steve from Essex travelled to Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Botswana on their honeymoonDear Rob, overall, it was wonderful – and your organisation was brilliant. We were met at every stage on time and there were no hassles. Nuarro Lodge was very comfortable and our hosts did everything they could to make us welcome and our stay enjoyable. Nthambo camp was fantastic. Our guides Matt and Isaac deserve a special mention because they were outstanding. Matt really took time to share his passion and knowledge about the animals and the bush and it made every trip out of camp and enjoyable adventure. Isaac had 30 years’ experience and was super cool. We really enjoyed the guided walks as well as the game drives, as we were as interested in the small stuff as much as the Big 5. We absolutely loved Waterberry Lodge in Zambia. You really pulled something special out of the bag on this one! Nathan and Gordon, the guides, and every single other member of staff, were so attentive and delightful. The lodge itself was super comfortable and we really, really wanted to stay longer there. Every place we stayed, the food was remarkable, especially given the limitations of getting fresh supplies and the facilities available. I’ve never eaten so much on holiday! So, all in all, a very special trip and your organisation was superb.Sue and Steve from Essex travelled to Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Botswana on their honeymoon

Introduction

Introduction to the magical and beautiful country of Zambia

Zambia today is still a traditional safari destination, offering a wide range of safari activities and experiences within an intimate and professional tourism industry. Most Zambia safari lodges and camps are small, many are still owner run, and you tend to leave as a friend rather than a paying client. Traditional values of personal service still exist, as do high standards of wildlife guiding.

Zambia is definitely a destination to consider for outdoor enthusiasts, and those who wish to really immerse themselves in wild Africa. While general game-viewing is excellent in a number of parks, the country is best known for offering fantastic walking safaris, incredible water-based activities (canoeing, boating and fishing on the Zambezi River), superb guiding and the wonderful hospitality mentioned above. The range of activities on offer makes Zambia an excellent destination for active visitors and families with older children.

Zambia is also an exclusive safari destination, with vast areas of pristine wilderness and relatively little evidence of mass tourism. Zambia’s premier safari region is the South Luangwa National Park, backed up by the beautiful Lower Zambezi and wild Kafue national parks. Between them, these parks offer a wonderful diversity of habitat and safari experience. More specialist destinations can include North Luangwa, Kasanka, Bangweulu, Lochinvar and Liuwa Plains. Victoria Falls, the world’s widest waterfall, are a major attraction and to see them in full flood from the air is one of Africa’s greatest sights.

If you are looking to immerse yourself in the natural world and enjoy some of the best guiding and hospitality that Africa offers, then Zambia is the ideal destination.
