Zambia

  • Matt, Kath, Charlie and Jem from Lincolnshire travelled to Zambia and BotswanaRob, I know we have spoken on the phone since we returned from Africa but it would be remiss of me not to write and thank you. I asked when we were planning this trip that I wanted an adventure and to create memories for my family and in particular my children. You did this and beyond, we have all loved it and the brief has been fulfilled and more. All 3 camps you chose were superb in their own individual ways and gave us such pleasure. The activities you recommended were brilliant with particular mention for Devils pool and the sleep out platform. We loved all the camps but particular mention for Kanana and in particular our guide Robbie who went above and beyond for our children and not only gave them a fabulous safari but nothing was too much trouble to make sure they had a great time. Rob thank you very much, you understood my brief 100%. Please keep in touch and I will start saving our pennies for next time.Matt, Kath, Charlie and Jem from Lincolnshire travelled to Zambia and Botswana

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.
