We had a spectacular time! The camps catered to photographers and each had a hide (blind) from which we got stellar opportunities to see a leopard kill and photograph hippos and elephants.

Most of the country is a high plateau with a temperate climate where two of Africa’s greatest rivers begin: the Congo and the mighty Zambezi, the country’s namesake.
Although English is the official language, the Zambian people are mostly Bantu tribal groups who practice synthesized traditional and Christian beliefs and speak a number of dialects.
There are over 19 national parks in Zambia, but many are remote, highly seasonal and difficult to visit. Our extensive, intimate knowledge of the parks and most reputable camps allows us to arrange itineraries with excellent guides in dramatically contrasting ecosystems. Safaris and game viewing in Zambia are unique because the emphasis is not on visiting many parks, but rather on experiencing life in the bush through walking safaris and night game drives in relatively unexplored game reserves.
Because of long distances between parks and generally poor roads, an extensive safari requires linking the various regions with scheduled/shared charter flights (or private charter flights if applicable).
One can easily split 6-10 nights between South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi along with a stop in Livingstone to see Vic Falls. Other destinations like Kafue’s Busanga Plains and unique safari areas like Liuwa Plains make Zambia one of our favorite options for travelers looking for a true wilderness experience!
