Zambia is often referred to as The Real Africa. Of course, other safari areas are very real too, however Zambian safaris are rightfully distinguished by the vintage expedition-style adventure delivered under the care of exceptional guides in remote wilderness areas teeming with wildlife. The atmosphere carries back to the camps as well. Unlike most Southern Africa destinations, there remains a preponderance of bushcamps, small and intimate, roughly half the size of a typical Botswana luxury camp which are considered small anywhere other than Zambia.

The camps retain a rustic charm while delivering supreme comfort and pampered service while maintaining a wonderful on-the-ground connection to the wilderness areas. Zambian guiding standards are rivaled only by Zimbabwe. Problems in Zimbabwe actually led to many guides moving over to Zambia, resulting in exceptional skills cultivated by the local Zambian guides. South Luangwa is the birthplace of walking safaris, and it is a rare treat to walk in areas where animals are habituated to humans on foot. The area also offers outstanding game drives, and is known for offering true night drives where you can stay out for long periods of time rather than just a return to camp for dinner. Wildlife ranges from the iconic safari species (lion, leopard, elephant, giraffe, hippo, zebra, etc) to rare species such as the African wild dog.
