Africa + Indian Ocean


    Discover the home of walking safaris...

    Little, if anything, compares to the intense thrill of seeing a leopard at close quarters on a walking safari with one of our favourite guides in the game-rich South Luangwa Valley. And that’s only the start of Zambia’s appeal.

    Three great rivers, including the Zambezi, and an amazingly rich and diverse spectrum of wildlife and habitats make this relatively under-developed country one of our favourite safari destinations. Here, you still feel as if you are exploring something raw and untamed. The sense-tingling walking safari originated in Zambia and it is still the best place to explore the bush on foot. 

    As well as the incredible, thundering cascades of Victoria Falls, there are little-known corners that we can help you to explore: the bird-lovers paradise of Kafue; the beautiful Bangweleu Swamp and the gloriously remote North Luangwa.

    Even more enticing than its scattering of excellent rustic-luxury camps, Zambia is home to some truly outstanding guides, most of whom we know personally.

    I had been looking forward to experiencing Royal Chundu, near Victoria Falls, ever since I started at cazenove+loyd. Whenever I had to source some photos for it, I had always sat and daydreamed about what it would be like to stay there. And then suddenly I was there, not daydreaming, but actually there…
    cazenove+loyd was born in Africa and we believe that the African safari is a trip that everyone should take at least once in their lives. No two safaris are ever the same, but to ensure that the holiday is as memorable as it should be, you need an expert.
    Wild, beautiful and with pockets still undiscovered, we reveal a few reasons why Zambia is the perfect destination for your next extraordinary holiday. 
    Safari connects you to nature in such an instinctive way, as you are exploring wilderness areas that are untouched by man. In the bush, animals seem surprised to see you and life seems to work as it should: without human interference.
    In all of the regions in which we work throughout the world, securing the most inspiring guides is our highest priority. Below we have highlighted some of our favourites, who we have known for years and who embody the qualities we look for when choosing a guide for our clients.
    The very best safari lodges and tented camps provide guests with a home away from home in a new and wild country. We have mapped out some of the things we look for in a luxury lodge, a tented camp and a mobile-safari expedition to demonstrate how we decide what is exactly right for you.
