Zambia

  • Hi Mary, The holiday was amazing. You did so well – everything was perfect and went like clock work. We saw some wonderful sights and stayed in amazing places. Waterberry – well what can you say. Such lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble. Winchester Mansions – what a lovely hotel, really quirky. The people were so nice everywhere we went. I would recommend all of them. We had fantastic views in all the places we stayed in. Lavender Manor – the whales were unbelievable we didn’t expect to see them so close. The rooms were lovely. Candlewood Lodge – we had fantastic views and again the rooms were lovely. The owners were very nice too. Knysna was a lovely area. Kichaka Game Lodge – that was amazing. We saw lots of animals and saw hippos and elephants from our room. Those rooms are amazing. Again the people were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The game drives were brilliant. We would love to go back to Africa again one day and will certainly be in contact when we do. Thank you again so much Mary, you made our holiday very special.

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 Luiwa 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.
