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.

Stories from Zambia
"I think my highlight was, overall, the quality of the people and the welcome and the intelligence/insight of the guides and the sense of being privileged to be in a place that's not in any way swamped. It's hard to pick a highlight. I loved Hwange for being in a world where elephants are in charge, and Mana Pools for the open landscape and the profusion of the wildlife, and Matetsi for the position of the camp and the lovely people who work there. Victoria Falls felt more mainstream by comparison though when we walked to the gorge at the end of the falls I felt very moved by the unbelievable beauty of the place. I cried twice in Zimbabwe - once watching elephants at very close quarters, so close I could hear them breathe and drink, and once in the place I just mentioned, listening to the gospel singing of some people on the Zambian side float across, and I am not easily moved to tears by such things!"
It is now a month since we left London for our African adventure and we are safely back in our respective boxes. It was the perfect safari! Thank you and your team very much indeed for your excellent organisation and implementation. Every one of our four locations was wonderful and proved to be the ideal combination. All your travel arrangements and support went like clockwork and the destinations – with good friends at every stop – could not have been more comfortable or beautiful. I hope that you will tell your colleagues and correspondents how delighted we were with your service.
