The Source of the Mighty Zambezi Zambia

Occupying an area over twice the size of Germany in the middle of Southern Africa, Zambia is a landlocked country with eight neighbours. Since independence from Britain in 1964 Zambia has navigated some turmoil to become a peaceful and comparatively prosperous country. Sitting on the plateau of Central Africa the average elevation is around 1,200 meters above sea level resulting in a generally moderate climate.

Zambia is famous for walking safaris with experienced and highly knowledgeable guides, these sought after on-foot experiences allow guests to study the minutiae of nature, smell the wild herbs and grasses and search for tracks, birds’ nests and seed pods. South Luangwa is our preferred walking safari destination although North Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and Kafue National Parks all offer walking trips. We can arrange anything from a one-off short walk to a full-blown walking safari, where you are under your own steam between camps for the duration of your trip and don’t use vehicles at all.

Traditional vehicle safaris are also incredible in Zambia due to the attractive and diverse landscape, high densities of wildlife and comparatively few other tourists. Although rhino are difficult to find (with only white rhino being present in Mosi-Oa Tunya National Park), the opportunity to see the rest of the big five and a healthy wild dog population make Zambia a fantastic safari choice.

The Lower Zambezi National Park encompasses 120 kilometres of river frontage and is teeming with crocodile and hippo, the birdlife is abundant and away from the river open grassland is home to lion, wild dog, antelope, elephant, buffalo and more. Night drives, boat trips and fishing expeditions are all possible.

Kafue is Zambia’s largest park, it is wild and off-the-beaten-track; with only a handful of camps in this vast area guests are unlikely to see another vehicle. Huge numbers of red lechwe, puku antelope, buffalo and wildebeest graze the seasonal Busanga floodplains while the river is home to hippo and crocodile.

There is a wide range of accommodation in Zambia, from rustic through to the incredibly luxurious, most camps and lodges are well spaced apart and extremely well situated in their surroundings as they are few in number in a vast space. Zambian camps tend to be small and intimate and offer exceptional service.

Destinations Within Zambia

Victoria Falls

When the Zambezi River is high, ten million litres of water rush over the lip of Victoria Falls each second, falling 108 metres into the roaring chasm below. Livingstone Island sits in the heart of this spray, on the brink of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and offers an experience that is entirely unique.


South Luangwa has incredibly diverse landscapes ranging from dense forests of Mopane, Ebony and Sausage Trees to wide open savanna punctuated only by the occasional lonely baobab - all hugged by the wide and winding Luangwa River. The now famous “walking safari” originated here and is still one of the finest ways to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness firsthand.
