Zambia Wildlife Holiday - What is special about a Zambia Safari

Posted in: Zambia


​What makes a Zambia Safari so special?

Zambia Safari - Zambia is a country which attracts the safari purist; with some of the best walking safaris in Africa and a rich history of low impact camps and stunning wildlife, it is no wonder that wildlife lovers return again and again to see some of the most well managed national parks in Africa. In addition, the Zambian goverment is fully committed to quality tourism within the National Parks and protection of the resident wildlife. My visit in 2010 also showed a gradual but welcome emergence of black Zambians becoming managers or owners of new safari lodges, which in many other parts of Africa is glaringly missing and reflects badly on African tourism in general.

One of the most famous parks in Zambia is South Luangwe and most clients Zambia Wildlife Holiday would be incomplete without a visit to this rich habitat for Wildlife. In June 2010 I stayed with Norman Carr Safaris who have some incredible lodges and remote camps linked together by their famous walking safaris. The walking safaris between Nsolo and Luwi in particular are wonderful opportunities to see wildlife in the company of your expert guides, followed by a sundowner and dinner on a sand bar in the river; what a special way to finish the day. If you would like to enjoy a special Zambia Safari with Norman Carr then please take a look at this wonderful 8 day Zambia Safari in the Green Season for which Wildlife Trails has special rates.

Another well known company who have earned a well deserved repuation for excellent Zambian safaris is Robin Pope safaris who own some beautiful lodges and tents, such as Tena Tena Camp and Luangwa Safari House. At all of their safari camps there is the option to either take a walking safari or game drive. It is the walking safaris that Robin Pope are most well known for, with some of the best guides in Zambia accompanying clients on their thrilling interpretive walks in the bush and sharing their huge wealth of knowledge. There are also options for mobile walking safaris for those keen to take this activity to the next level; with durations from 2 to 5 days. Wildlife Trails are currently offering a 10 day Zambia Safari in the Emerald Season with Robin Pope safaris.
