Probably the best guides in the world

Take the rough with the smooth

Zambia is the place to feel the sand beneath your toes and experience the rugged side of safari. But it also has different, slightly softer side. 

Zambia. It’s the home of walking safaris, fly camps and specialist guides. It’s where you can walk behind an elephant, connect with the bush and experience the real Africa. 

But if roughing isn’t your thing, there are magnificent lodges that offer a smooth alternative. We’ve picked out our favourites and hope  to  give you a flavour of this remote, enchanting wilderness.

Please note: The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) issues travel advice on destinations, which includes information on passports, visas, health, safety and security. We urge you to visit their website before deciding to travel.

We recommend flying into Johannesburg and routing your trip through Lusaka or Livingstone. Zambia can easily be combined with Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa due to internal flights. There are direct flights into Lusaka and depending on your itinerary these sometimes work out perfectly. We will discuss this in the course of planning your trip with you. 


The best time for game viewing in Zambia is May to October, the dry season. Animals search for rivers and water holes and generally stay nearby once found. The wet season is from November to April, the landscape is bursting with colour and excellent for new born sightings, some parks close during this time due to dirt roads becoming impassable. You can visit Livingstone at any time of the year – the water levels vary throughout, low and high water being equally unique.
