"South Luangwa 22 Oct to 12 Nov 2022"
With all wildlife you can never guarantee what you will see, and it is very much dependent on time of year and weather conditions. Overall, we had an abundant and excellent wildlife experience to make for a really great safari, and one we will never forget! In particular the numerous sightings of leopard, a tiny lion cub being carried out of the bush by its mother, and a pack of 31 wild dogs! I could go on, but there is too much to mention!!
This trip was a long time coming – originally booked pre-pandemic for travel in November 2022 – it was so good to get back to the bush!
We would like to thank both Expert Africa and The Bushcamp Company for happily deferring our trip not just once, but twice, through the pandemic, and the changes to the itineraries it involved. And also, to Chris from Expert Africa, for taking time out to reply to me whilst he was on holiday, to reassure us everything was covered should another outbreak/variant occur. This allowed us to relax a bit more and look forward to a return to Africa after a 3-year absence!" Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 19 on a Zambia safari
"My Oct 2022 trip"
We wanted to take the kids on a classic safari for the experience and that was what we had." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari
"My Oct 2022 trip"
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.

"Zambia two years late!"
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
"Shenton Safari Kaingo and Mwamba Oct 22"
We almost never return to the same location for a holiday, but these two camps (which we visited in 2014) buck this trend due to their great guiding and wildlife experiences.
All the rest, the accommodation, great food, extremely helpful staff combine to make a fantastic holiday." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari
"Back at last after nine years"
Good to have 3 camps in different areas of the park. At 76, our 11 nights/12 days was probably slightly longer than we would do next time, if we can afford to go again and are fit enough.
All the transfers/meet and greet etc worked perfectly (as they have on all our previous 5 Expert Africa trips) - thanks.
All the staff in the camps are both very professional, and approachable and friendly, as well as flexible on various occasions.
Good to see game numbers so obviously healthy, with lots of young in evidence.
Good to hear on the ground that the suggestion of clients like us paying some extra deposit money to help the camps through covid really did help - it reached local people. Also, from Tafika we heard that rather than covid leading to more poaching, it made locals appreciate just how camps are so beneficial to the local community and economy."
