Zambia

  • I have never used a specialist company before or booked a safari holiday therefore have nothing to compare with. However this will remain the case when booking future holidays to Africa as I would not consider risking travelling with another company such was the level of the service I experienced. From my first telephone enquiry no question was left unanswered even before I had indicated I would be using their services. Absolutely no hard sell just factual answers and practical advice. All I knew was that I wanted to visit Victoria Falls and go on safari. From this the most perfect itinerary was arranged within my budget. Throughout the process I was consulted to ensure I was happy with arrangements. Every last detail was considered and addressed. For example early on in the process I mentioned my reservations about camping on safari and safety. When we arrived at our first destination, the manageress told us that Safari Consultants had recorded of our concerns and asked for accommodation to be nearer the main camp. This was so reassuring and is a demonstration of the quality of service I received. In conclusion services provided by this company are second to none in relation to itinerary, accommodation and service. However it is the attention to the smaller detail that truly sets it apart.

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.
