Having returned from our annual visit to the exciting and informative luxury trade show & conference ‘We are Africa’ in Cape Town, combined with a week travelling through some of the wonderful regions of Zambia, this trip has once again reinforced the fact that Zambia most definitely offers a truly authentic safari destination. Deep in the very middle of the African continent, Zambia should be at the top of the list for your African safari plans.
People often ask how do they get there from Australia? Access from Australia couldn’t be easier these days with flights in and out of Lusaka either via Johannesburg or Dubai. Visiting Kafue, the Lower Zambezi or South Luangwa National Parks, you will discover remoteness, tranquility, no crowds and unbelievable wildlife. The accommodation is first-class, with award winning professional guiding, gourmet food and a wildlife experience not to be missed. The local people are warm, welcoming and a joy to engage with.
Zambia is the home of the walking safari, so for those looking for a little more adventure out of the safari vehicle, this is THE place for an authentic safari. Head off from camp at first light, hop out of the vehicle at a designated place and enjoy a guided walk. With your guides you will have a chance to learn about other aspects of the bush and share their knowledge. Take some exercise, and walk off some of that delicious food, fine wines and local beer! Other activities on offer include 4X4 open vehicle game drives, boating, fishing and canoeing, and all are generally included in the daily rate. There are even some lodges here featuring award-winning spas to offer you the perfect, tranquil setting to connect the mind, body and spirit with nature. Indulge in relaxing treatments in beautiful surroundings to encourage that essential un-wind on holiday, and return home completely refreshed.
A holiday in Zambia will be memorable indeed!
