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.

"Our tenth trip to RPS"

I visited Zambia between 31 Oct 2023 and 24 Nov 2023
"We are not usual safari travellers as we are interested in everything including how the villages run, the people, the Church and Shops. We are concerned your review only refers to animals - no birds, trees, insects etc. Why?

We have been on over 50 safaris to places that not as popular as some - we are not box tickers. See previous answers.

Claire at Expert Africa has arranged all our RPS trips over the years and knows exactly what we require. She is a 'star'. Thank you." Read full review: 24 nights in Africa; 22 on a Zambia safari

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia between 27 Oct 2023 and 9 Nov 2023
"Excellent combination of camps for our first trip to Zambia . The South Luangwa NP first - The two Shenton Safaris camps an excellent combination.

Then to Lower Zambezi NP . Again the combination of main camp and bush camp run by same family worked very well .

The heat was pretty challenging at times. Temperatures in high 30’s - early 40’s most of the trip. We were well advised about this of course but it’s def worth mentioning. The only way to cool down a little is to wrap a wet a kikoy around you at night 👍🏻😊" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Our Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia between 17 Oct 2023 and 8 Nov 2023
"Absolutely loved each park.

Would not recommend Zambia to first time safari goers as game viewing can be a little slow. However that gave our guides the opportunity to tell us about other things giving a more rounded experience" Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 20 on a Zambia safari

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia between 11 Oct 2023 and 25 Oct 2023
"I absolutely loved this trip.

Having only been to Botswana before, but also knowing the kind of camps I enjoy, Chris and Megan Green were able to consult with me regarding where and what I wanted to see in Zambia. They were bang-on in their suggestions. (I absolutely loved the walking camps - you guys are rock stars). I know, the suggestion for team member shows Chris McIntyre, but a special mention has to please go out to Megan Green who put this whole trip together, and dealt with all my questions and concerns.

Expert Africa, are indeed every indicator of their name. They are just simply the experts. I trust in every aspect of the process......the knowledge they possess of all the areas is unmatched. A very special thank you to Chris McIntyre, and Megan Green to put together this first trip to Zambia - with mind for future travels.

I absolutely loved the feeling of raw, real, authentic, rugged Zambia.

It was everything I'd hoped for and more." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 14 on a Zambia safari

They know Africa inside out and their people have visited the destinations, so they know what they are talking about and can tailor make your trip to suit your needs.

They are very professional and helpful - I cannot recommend them enough." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia between 8 Oct 2023 and 21 Oct 2023
"Thanks so much to Lucy Copson for organising an absolutely wonderful trip for us down to the last detail. We have travelled with Expert Africa before and always had a good experience however this time we were a group of 6 which can be challenging to organise. We are very keen on smaller camps, look for great guiding and game but in quieter areas. We were not disappointed and I think this was our best trip yet. Great recommendations, we were so lucky with our game viewing including following wild dogs , leopards and so much else . It all worked very smoothly , we had the most fantastic time - a truly memorable experience. Thank you." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"Our Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 5 Oct 2023 and 2 Nov 2023
"In terms of game viewing experience, quality of accommodations, ease of connecting between camps and overall enjoyment this is the best safari experience we’ve had.

Expert Africa took care of all the details once we landed in Africa, and when we had a flight delay between camps due to weather, our flight schedule and accommodation for an extra night in camp were organized for us without a hitch.

The quality of every camp was just as we expected. The quality of guiding was the highest we’ve experienced. And even after a month of travel we never tired of the delicious and varied menu options.

Expert Africa took care of every detail and Wilderness (plus Green Safaris for one camp) came through in every camp.

The other companies that provided ground and air transportation between countries or camp-to-camp were also efficient and convenient. Excellent trip!" Read full review: 28 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari
