Zambia

Zambia is well known for excellent guiding and top-class walking safaris.

...while some bushcamps in the South Luangwa exclusively offer walking safaris.

There's always plenty of time in between activities to relax with a drink...

...and watch the local wildlife!

From the smaller animals...

...to the biggest - there's a huge amount of game to be viewed in the different parks.

...you can find more luxurious lodges here as well...

...and every camp goes the extra mile to provide special touches to your safari.

"First time in Africa"

I visited Zambia between 17 Oct 2007 and 30 Oct 2007
"I booked this on a whim after reading about walking safaris in the FT. It was our first trip to Africa, first safari and I would go back. Meeting other travellers and hearing their tales and recommendations makes us want to see other parts of the country.

Next time I would not do a safari every day, now I know what is involved, but perhap see a little more of the country.

I initially thought the trip was expensive but looking back and on what we got for our money it was very good value." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"My trip to Africa"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 12 Oct 2007 and 30 Oct 2007
"An absolutely brilliant trip, everything and more than I could have hoped for.

Expert Africa's Anna Devereux Baker was exceptionally helpful when flight times changed, the Post Office went on strike and I needed a flight upgrade arranged due to back problems." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"2 weeks in Zambia and Botswana"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 6 Oct 2007 and 20 Oct 2007
"It was an excellent, really well planned, balanced and interesting trip. We came back both stimulated and relaxed.

Your advice was very sound. We felt well looked after but also a little bit adventurous.

We have hundreds of digital photos to sort through!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 9 on a Botswana safari

"Gurney holiday"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 5 Oct 2007 and 21 Oct 2007
"An outstanding holiday with a lovely mix of different things. Very glad we went to Cape Town first. Stayed at Constantia Uitsig whoich was truly outstanding for food and comfort.

Victoria Falls was well worth seeing.

Botswana really was brilliant and I cannot recommend it more. Sandibe was the only disapointing part and not all their fault." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"Amazing trip, we want to go back!"

I visited Zambia between 21 Sep 2007 and 13 Oct 2007
"Difficult to imagine how this trip could be bettered. Before we went we had met very few people who had been to Zambia but all those we had met had raved about it, now we are inclined to think they may have been under-selling it! Our sole concern is that we struggle to see how any future Africa trip can begin to compare.

We know that we were unusually lucky but to see 7 leopards including a courting couple and three on kills one of which in broad daylight exceeded our wildest dreams.

In addition, we had some wonderful sightings of a great variety of mammals and birds and the benefit of the deep love and understanding of the bush imparted by our excellent guides. We hope to return as soon as we are able." Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Amazing."

I visited Zambia between 21 Sep 2007 and 12 Oct 2007
"It was a perfect experience. I wanted to return to Lusaka where I had grown up and then to go on to some safaris and the Falls and then onto Capetown where we have friends.

It was a perfectly planned trip, Lucy from Expert Africa had been so helpful every step of the way.

Suggestions for improvement:

It would be great to get rid of the tetse fly - i understand that other countries have introduced an erridation programme. Otherwise your reecommendations and services were excellent." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari
