During Zambia Walking Safari

Working Ants, spotted on a Zambia Walking Safari

Ants are efficient predators of other insects, which helps to keep insect populations under control. Ants loosen the soil in the same way as earthworms do and improve air and water movement into the Earth.

​Look out for the Small Things while you walk

Flocks of guineas kill and eat mice and small rats. In addition, guinea fowl can be used to control insect. Wild guineas eat mainly insects and flocks have been known to attack snakes.

Carpenter Termites were spotted on a Zamia Walking Safari

Carpenter ants clean up pest debris and promote composting of rotting wood. A beneficial insect. Although they do not eat wood as termites do, they seek out and destroy damp or rotting wood in which to make their nests. And they are very good at it.

Walking Safaris Refreshment Stop

Take a pause to enjoy delicious homemade biscuits and tea/coffee.

Walking Safaris in ZAMBIA

South Luangwa National Park is definitely one of the best parks in Africa due to its concentration of wildlife. Also known as “Valley of the Leopards” due to regular sightings. This is where the first walking safari in Zambia took place. In 2017, the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) declared that South Luangwa National Park is Africa's first sustainable wildlife park. The big 4 are all in South Luangwa National Park and the Black Rhino is found in North Luangwa National Park (walking safaris only). Kafue National park, Lower Zambezi National Park, and Liuwa Plain home of the second-largest wildebeest migration also offer walking safaris. Zambian parks are remote and unspoiled. They still offer the feel of the original safari experience of days gone by. We can help you find affordable walking safaris to meet your budget.
