A safari in Zambia is typically rich in wildlife, great guiding & superb little safari lodges & bushcamps. It's one of the best places for walking safaris.

Zambia has made a name for itself in the last ten years, as a high quality wildlife destination and one that is particularly good for walking safaris.  Simple, but outstanding bushcamps, excellent local guides, beautiful riverine scenery and varied game and birdlife are the trademarks of a safari in Zambia.

Rod Tether has lived and guided in Zambia for more than 20 years. As a result of guiding and running his own camp, Kutandala, Rod has more local experience than most. If you'd like to discuss plans for a Zambia safari do drop Rod an email and he'll be happy to discuss your plans with you.

The Luangwa Valley, Lower Zambezi and Kafue National Parks are the highlight of the wildlife circuit, providing as they do, a very rich and varied game experience.  The South Luangwa has a great deal of choice for some great walking safaris, with a diverse selection of bushcamps that range from fun and rustic to chic and luxurious.  The North Luangwa is for those that want a very wild walking experience, where roads and people are scarce.  For birders or those seeking to venture into the wilds, Bangweulu and Kasanka fit the bill, although both offer little choice in accommodation and slightly awkward logistics.  Victoria Falls is also often on the Zambia safari wish-list. 

Due to the effects of the rains on the park infrastructure, much of Zambia has a short season that runs from June to October.  Certain Zambia safari lodges in the South Luangwa stay open for part of the rainy season – a dramatically different and exhilarating experience.  Livingstone and the Falls are open all year round (although not perhaps the best time to view the Falls and you are likely to get a good soaking).  Find out more about the best time to visit Zambia.
