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... the biggest - there's a huge amount of game to be viewed in the different parks. can find more luxurious lodges here as well...

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

I visited Zambia between 20 Aug 2007 and 30 Aug 2007
"Overall we had a wonderful trip.

However we booked this trip because the emphasis was on it being a walking safari. We felt we had to persuade to walk at times, which was disappointing for us. It seemed that some other guests had not been sold it in the same way and were happy to drive.

We have friends who did an almost identical trip through you last year and this was not their experience. Despite the one unfortunate drive we had a really memorable time, and were impressed with the efficiency and smoothness of organisation. Thank you."

"The holiday of a lifetime!"

I visited Zambia between 17 Aug 2007 and 1 Sep 2007
"It was a great experience and one which will stay with us for a long time.

It was worth spending time on the organisation of our itinerary which was about as good as it could have been providing variety and excitement all the way. All in all a brilliant trip." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Zambia safari

"everything we wished for"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 11 Aug 2007 and 11 Sep 2007
"Great guidance on choosing camps from Maruska. They suited us ideally in terms of standard of accommodation, variety in environments, game viewing, fellow guests.

All arrangements worked out well - the few minor comments are in the individual sheets but given more as constructive feedback than complaints.

Quilalea a great add on but it will be better when there are better flight connections." Read full review: 31 nights in Africa; 12 on a Botswana safari

"Wild life at its best"

I visited Zambia between 10 Aug 2007 and 26 Aug 2007
"This was a well planned holiday, that was enjoyable in every sense of the word. we will be returning to Zambia and to the same places- and we will book with Expert Africa - there can be no greater accolade.

keep up the good work. speaking to someone who has been to the camps gave a great sense of security to our decisions.

i would recommned that continuing the policy of personal visits be continued. your accurate knowledge was a great selling point" Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"An exceptional family experience."

I visited Zambia between 10 Aug 2007 and 21 Aug 2007
"We had a wonderful trip and such a variety of experiences. The luxury organised by you was very well placed at the beginning and end of the trip as we had the balancing experience of staying on the charity compound and seeing how the majority of the Zambians really live.

Out trip to the Copper Belt was equally revealing and we were glad that we had chosen to drive that part of the journey as life at the roadside was not to be missed.

All in all we will all be returning - albeit not together! Many thanks for your quideance and suggestions." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 2 on a Zambia safari

"A Memorable honeymoon"

I visited South Africa and 1 other country between 3 Aug 2007 and 23 Aug 2007
"Superb planning by Expert Africa, thank you so much.

Great memorable smiles on the faces of children who have nothing in this world. Shows the Brits that there are people with nothing in this world and they can still smile and not winge. Did not realise that Bic pens can be used to bargain with in the markets.

We have sent our valet at Tongabezi a Chelsea shirt with his hero printed on the back to say a further thank you and we have sent a parcel for the school in the Zambian school of Simonga, they have nothing out there. What a wonderful life experience. All Brits ought to pay a visit to Africa." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 6 on a South Africa trip

"We all loved it and can't wait to get back"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 3 Aug 2007 and 19 Aug 2007
"Expert Africa helped tailor this trip to our requirements exactly. The first half (Zambia) was our best holiday ever. The second half (Zanzibar) was a bit of an anti-climax and very disappointed with inability to scuba dive.

Anna Devereux is the best travel agent I have ever dealt with. I am quite demanding/ pernickety but she was always more than glad to answer any query with alarming efficiency. As I told her - sometimes it seemed she was working for us and noone else. Her recommendations were spot on. Anna was also willing to get involved when issues came up during the holiday (Zambian airways flight overbooking/ disasterours last-minute trip to Ngorongoro (not booked through Expert)). Real value-added travel agency." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari

"The best ever trip"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 1 Aug 2007 and 22 Aug 2007
"Superb holiday - simply the best.

The hotels/lodges/transport etc all worked like clockwork. The combination of accomodations suited us well - teenager friendly, good quality, good food etc. People incredibly helpful and friendly.

Would change little in retrospect - probably only a direct flight from Cape Town to Maun." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 6 on a Botswana safari

"Trip of a lifetime"

I visited Zambia between 30 Jul 2007 and 15 Aug 2007
"Absolutely out of this world! We feel so privileged to have had such a wonderful experience and have met so many lovely people. The safaris were more than we ever could have dreamed of and we saw absolutely everything we wanted to see and more!

We expected with all the transfers that at some point something might go wrong/ bags be lost etc, but everything went exactly according to plan.

Thank you so much for organising this holiday. We were very sad to have to leave Zambia.

Keep up the good work!" Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari
