Zambia holidays. Tours & holidays in 2015 & 2016


Zambia holidays

Combine crashing waterfalls, still rivers reflecting the sunrise, and jaw-dropping wilderness disturbed only by the wildlife that reigns there – and you have Zambia. The birthplace of the walking safari, to follow nature's path on foot is an experience as special as the diverse landscape you’ll explore. You will be mesmerised by the slower pace of life that flows in line with the rise and fall of the great Zambezi River, and awestruck by the raging rapids of the infamous Victoria Falls.

Namibia and Botswana safari holiday
We had fantastic animals encounters in several places including Mosi oa Tunya, Mahango, Etosha and Chobe. The walking safari in Mosi oa Tunya was very special, we got great views of giraffe and white rhinos on foot. The landscape and animals at Etosha are just breath taking, we saw lions there and many other animals and birds. (more)Richard Stansfield
Fantastic! We loved every minute of it. Guides were lovely people, very good at their job and we enjoyed the team working aspect of group participation in cooking and camp activities. (more)Rachel Guinee
I am a frequent traveller and have done many overland and organize trip in the past, by far these were the best I have used. The countries visited were more than I could have ever imagined and the people I met along the way will always stay with me. It's a 10 out of 10. (more)Cathal Murphy
From €2595 - €2890 excluding flights
Victoria Falls to Cape Town small group holiday
Memorable parts? Imposible to pick one thing as it was 3 weeks of wall to wall fantastic experinces. Etosha NP.... Game drives & waterhole at night/early morning! An elephant suddenly looming from nowhere in the dark & playing in the water. Rhino trekking....7 just 8metres away. Awesome! Elephant encounter right in front of our vehicle! 4 hippos 10 metres in front of us. Okavango mokoro canoes & camp & tracking and amazing helicopter flight over delta (own expense). Climbing dune 45 for... (more)Heather Gratland
From £1655 - £1875 excluding flights
Zambia safari in South Luangwa
The most memorable part was when we were driving up a rocky dry river to see white rhinos and when they smelled/heard us and started coming towards us, realized they could be a lot faster than us on this terrain. (more)Sven Jeanrenaud
The most exciting was the gorge swing & white river rafting in Victoria Falls as well as the night game drives following lions stalking prey in the Okavango. (more)Jean Pierre Kruger
From £3220 excluding flights
Wildlife volunteering in Malawi, with Zambia safari
My time at there was fantastic - I would recommend the Center in a heartbeat to anyone wishing to have a conservation-oriented holiday. Work is not too difficult on the whole, and you will have enough spare time to develop solid relationships with other volunteers and otherwise enjoy your time. (more)Ben van Haeringen
Working with the young orphaned animals, helping to provide their day-to-day care, was a truly unforgettable experience. Seeing wild Lions, Leopards, Elephants (and many more) up close on safari was fantastic, surpassing all my expectations. (more)Philip Toole
From £1400 excluding flights
Southern Africa luxury wildlife & beach holiday
Botswana was the best. We want to go back today!! One of the most memorable moments is arriving in our first camp, and barely two hours later, sitting on a Land Rover just meters from a male lion, and nothing between him and us! Just amazing! (more)Dirk Bettels
Do it! Money well spent... (more)Katrin Nyman Metcalf
From £6555 including UK flights

It was tremendous! (more)John Greenwood
excellent, but very tiring (more)Gerard Thompson
We loved it! The staff was so knowledgeable and we enjoyed the participation aspect of the trip. The people we met were great and it was really a bonus to meet people from all over the world. (more)Kelly Towle
From €1965 - €1990 excluding flights
Zambia and Malawi tailor made safaris
In all respects it exceeded our expectations - I cannot imagine a better holiday. (more)Chaz Seymour
All days and trip were memorable, but above all watching elephants crossing the river 30 metres away from us having lunch in Old Mondoro was the most. We are definitely satisfied. (more)Vincenzo Bracciale
From £4500 including UK flights
Southern Africa holiday
I can't wait to return to Africa with these operators. It is a unique and special way to see a country and feel the local vibe. Extensive overland travel gives more than a taste of the local culture and enables one to experience a very different way of life than we are used to in the western world. (more)Honey Bernstein
It was all pretty memorable - for positive reasons! Well organised, excellent guide - and the group of us gelled well. (more)Rachel Balen
Botswana is a fantastic country and we had a brilliant guide who was happy to share his knowledge about the different countries, animals and places we travelled through. (more)Anna Downie
From £1855 - £1995 excluding flights
Botswana camping safaris
I am really happy we did it and I will never do a holiday as memorable and extraordinary again! (more)Susan Davies
Best bits: The wildlife, glimpses of birds and lions, wild camping, professionalism of guides. (more)Mark Ereira
Indescribably lovely...the most memorable parts were wild camping and interactions with wildlife! (more)Becky Sandford
From £1205 - £1295 excluding flights
Namibia Desert & Caprivi small group lodge safari
Memorable parts? Flying over Victoria falls on a microlite. This is a paid extra but worth every penny. Tips? 1)Mid-day cruise on the Zambezi at Livingstone waterfront passes along beside the game reserve. We got our best shots of hippos and elephants on this cruise. 2)You've spent a lot of money to get here. So you probably cant afford to do every extra. But if you get the chance to do something you really want to do, DO IT. We flew over Vic Falls on a Microlite. Not cheap but it... (more)Richard Paradine

Johannesburg to Victoria Falls tours in Southern Africa
I thoroughly enjoyed the vacation. (more)Eric Kravetz
The leader and his team were excellent and we all got on in the group. Seeing lions in Kruger was the highlight. (more)Janet Aston
The Chobe NP river cruise and the adrenaline activities in Vic Falls were the most memorable. (more)Tony Lo
From £880 - £950 excluding flights
Victoria Falls to Nairobi overland tour
Memorable parts? Seeing the big 5 in Ngangongoro; watching a leopard hunt in South Luangwa. Tips? You are on the move a lot and if you sit in the back of the truck, you will be shaken about a lot. So not recommended for anyone with back problems. Don't pack too many things, as you are in a different location almost every night (though you will have plenty of storage room either way, in contrast to some other operators). Local benefits? Yes, we did some things that benefited... (more)Susanne Irving
From £2080 excluding flights
Nairobi to Victoria Falls overland travel
I can't really say that I have returned relaxed and refresh... was really tired (in the last days did abseil, rafting, micro light, travelled for 36 hours,..) but really enjoyed it! Memorable parts? Saw a lion on a tree, the lake with hippos in new year, the new friends. Tips? Be prepared for the rain (yes, it rains in Africa) and for long hours on the truck. Local benefits? We didn't have too much contact with local people since we stayed in private camping, but I think... (more)Carla Almeida

Vic falls to Cape Town overland tour in 4 weeks
Memorable parts? Seeing hippos up close after travelling by mokoro ( canoe) in Okavango delta Tips? Come with open mind and interest in photography - be prepared to muck in but better than most overland trips in that we had a cook spacious vehicle and tents . Local benefits? Benefited local people when we visited Himba tribe and employed locals as porters and boaters . Overall rating? Very enjoyable and great range of locations (more)wendy taylor

South East Africa overland tour
Memorable parts? There are several: 1. Serengeti - the landscape and animals 2. Zanzibar - a good mix with Stonetown and the beach 3. Meeting the people in Malawi and Zimbabwe 4. Meeting Ian Harmer from African in Zimbabwe and getting close to rhinos 5. Seeing Victoria Falls Tips? Definitely bring a water bottle and also a flask/thermos style mug (with lid) for making an extra tea and coffee at breakfast to take with you when spending hours in the bus. Also be prepared...
