"I have become a big fan of walking safaris !"

I visited Zambia between 6 Jul 2021 and 16 Jul 2021
"I think that this was one of my very best holidays I ever had.

Walking safari was something new to me (actually safari as a whole was new to me) and it has surpassed all my expectations. I am convinced that this is the very best way to visit the bush, much much better than driving.

You do see less wildlife, especially the predators seem difficult to meet on a walk, but you learn so much more and each encounter is just so much more emotional.

Not really. I just want to emphasize how important my relationship with Lucy (at Expert Africa) was in the preparation. She has just been fantastic, solving all problems which were being created by constant changes to my flights because of the airlines.

Had it not been for Lucy being so helpful, I may have given up travelling this year and postponed my trip to 2022 or 2023." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"Luwanga trip"

I visited Zambia between 28 Sep 2019 and 9 Oct 2019
"A good balance between locations, walkinig and driving safaris.

It fulfilled our brief.

We didn't thoroughly read the travel information until the last moment. This meant hurried purchase of soft luggage which worked well." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 11 on a Zambia safari

"Zambia 2019"

I visited Zambia between 20 Jul 2019 and 4 Aug 2019
"This was a fantastic trip - many thanks to Claire.

The remoteness we experienced in North Luangwa in particular, and the quality of the guiding plus the lack of other vehicles in all the places we visited, were really very special indeed.

Walking in the bush, particularly with Remote Africa, was both immersive and addictive and coupled with the smaller, rustic nature of the camps we stayed at throughout the holiday has very much whetted our appetites for more!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Surpassed our expectations"

I visited Zambia between 16 Jul 2019 and 31 Jul 2019
"We left the UK for Zambia with high expectations, having visited South Luangwa on three previous occasions. We were not disappointed - every camp has the highest standards even if it may be one of the 'humbler' bush camps. All camps are very comfortable and provide the most delicious fresh food - suffice to say we were never hungry!

The staff, guides and scouts are highly trained and knowledgeable. They are also entertaining and, as far as the guides and scouts are concerned, fill one with confidence when, for example, out on a walking safari or when confronted by elephants as we were on several occasions.

The camps are small (maximum of six chalets) and we were often the only two people in a jeep with a guide and a scout, which is very spoiling.

All being well, we will be returning to South and North Luangwa in the next year or two and in the meantime will have to rely on our memories of this magical country." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Safari in Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 3 Jul 2019 and 23 Jul 2019
"Our entire time in Zambia was on safaris, walking as much as possible. We were very happy with the choice of camps , and we had a brilliant time.

We particularly enjoyed the small camps, especially when their atmosphere is informal. We were very happy at Kutali to see Luke speaking Nyanja with the staff.

We are uncomfortable with the post-colonial formality and unnecessary sophistication of food and lodging in wilderness situations; to us they feel like a perpetuation of psychological exploitation. But we love the skill and enthusiasm of the guides and the observation of all features of the environment.
