Indepth Zambia Safari Expertise
We frequently take our own personal holidays here in Zambia, traveling across the country by air and road. This gives us firsthand knowledge of which destinations, and accommodations will suit you best. From what are the best rooms, vehicle types, the right swimming pool, where you can get great food
and wine, who are the best guides and of course all the little places and extras that no one else knows about.
We find the best safari for you, based on your needs and preferences, from more modest budgets to pure luxury. Since we are an independent tour operator that is not tied into contracts with international consortiums we can give our honest opinion to design and hand pick the right safari for you.
