"Zambia two years late!"

I visited Zambia between 17 Oct 2022 and 7 Nov 2022
"This trip, like those of many others, was originally booked for 2020 and then postponed again in 2021. This time it was brought forward by a few days and a couple of nights added at the start to take advantage of Emirates pricing. All arrangements went smoothly.

As a first trip to Zambia we chose to visit three national parks (Kafue/ South Luangwa/Lower Zambezi) and were glad we did as they were very different, as were the camps selected. We were a little disappointed by the variety of birds seen and fewer than expected leopards in their supposed hot spot of South Luangwa.

There were film crews in South Luangwa and Kafue throughout our stays which, on occasions, inhibited our access and positioning at sightings. This was a VERY expensive trip and we did not expect our experience to be limited by them taking priority!

However, overall we had a terrific time with plentiful sightings and photos to prove it.

Our vegetarian diet was brilliantly catered for at every camp and of the three parks Lower Zambezi was our favourite." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 19 on a Zambia safari

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 17 Oct 2022 and 26 Oct 2022
"Nothing could have been better.

We knew how good Megan was from previous bookings so we fully expected another perfect trip.

That is exactly what we got. Already planning the next one. Thank you to you all.

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 6 Oct 2022 and 23 Oct 2022
"A wonderful trip including returns to old favourite camps and exciting newcomers. Remote Africa Safaris, as ever, did not disappoint and their new camp Takwela is a great addition to their circuit.

Despite many trips to Luangwa this was only my second visit to Lower Zambezi, and I was quite blown away by the density of wildlife and the beautiful scenery. The atmospheric Winterthorn forests make a stunning backdrop for photography.

Thanks to Claire for the tireless rearranging of multiple trips over the last 2 years!" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 15 on a Zambia safari

"Big birthday Africa trip 2022"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 18 Sep 2022 and 1 Oct 2022
"Despite travel to Zambia and Malawi being a little challenging (there are no direct flights, so lots of flights and transfers) we regarded all this as part of the adventure and worth it for the experiences we had.

Covid regulations weren't a problem, we were met and escorted at every stage of the journey and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. We love the tiny planes between places and the balance of safari and beach chill-out was fantastic, a very special trip.

Claire was always responsive, pro-active and gave us great advice when planning the trip and answering my questions throughout.

As it was our joint birthdays, the special surprises each location laid on were just lovely and so kind.

I honestly believe EA are the very best at Africa holidays, the knowledge and experience of the advisors are exceptional and their advice is accurate." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 16 Sep 2022 and 6 Oct 2022
"Our trip to Zambia was absolutely amazing in every way.

It was lovely to enjoy a break away, knowing that we were bringing much needed income back into the parts of the country where families are reliant on tourism.

The camp staff were all so welcoming and the wildlife sightings were exceptional.

We would thoroughly recommend Zambia as a destination for first time safari-goers as well as old hands. Just GO!

Lucy did the most incredible job to put together our itinerary and to adapt it as necessary due to the Covid postponements.

Thank you so much." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 21 on a Zambia safari

"My September 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 14 Sep 2022 and 29 Sep 2022
"Zambia is one of our favourite safari destinations and we wanted to return to Old Mondora and the Lower Zambezi. On prior trips we had visited both the North and South Luangwa Valley so we decided to visit Kafue.

Overall, we enjoyed our time in Kafue and would consider returning to the Busanga Plain but would be very mindful of camp location relative to accessing the plain.

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 8 Sep 2022 and 21 Sep 2022
"Our best safari so far and we will quite possibly use Expert Africa again.

We have always planned our own trips in the past to SA, Namibia and Botswana (self drive) but found we needed help with Zambia which you provided amply. This was booked in Feb 2020 and was delayed by 12 months twice due covid so I was particularly pleased when it actually happened." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 20 Aug 2022 and 4 Sep 2022
"Wonderful. As in so many cases, our holiday was planned some time ago, and looking at the itinerary again in the run-up to our departure, we wondered if we should perhaps have booked to visit fewer camps and stay at each one for a bit longer.

In the end (given the time we had available) we really loved the structure and scheduling of the trip and it was particularly special to be able to visit all the Remote Africa camps. The walking at Chikoko, Big Lagoon and Mwaleshi was totally immersive and engrossing, allowing us to see and hear things we never would have done from a vehicle, and when paired with the full on game driving at Old Mondoro, it made for a fantastic holiday.

We found we especially liked being able to walk from camp to camp - and if visiting again, would definitely put in an advance request to do so between Mwaleshi and Takwela, which by good fortune happened to be possible on this occasion without us having pre-planned it. And if Remote Africa were ever to think about opening a third bush camp in North Luangwa, we can only imagine how lovely it would be to do a walking circuit between the camps in that area.

Very many thanks to Claire for putting together such an amazing trip and also for all her good advice on flight options, in terms of both getting to and getting about Zambia." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari
