What to expect on a women only safari in Zambia
When you book a women's safari in Zambia, you can expect an adventure that is both exciting and educational. Women-only tours are typically smaller in size, which means that you'll have plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the wildlife. You'll also have the chance to learn about local culture from your knowledgeable guides. The focus during the tours will be a combination of wildlife encounters and learning more about women communities in Zambia and making new life long friendships with other members of the group. Our tours are driven by our sustainable purpose and contribute to the livelihoods of local women. If you're interested in experiencing Africa's beauty diversity be sure to book a women only safari soon on the Ntanda Ventures website!
Animals you'll see on Safari in Zambia
The wildlife experience in Zambia is spectacular. Zambia is one of the few countries left in the world where development and tourism haven't destroyed the real wilderness of nature. The wildlife observed on Zambian excursions to the national parks is breathtaking and wild. Some of the time that means that you need to compromise on comfort but that is where Ntanda Ventures support comes in. As a local expert we know how to show you the wildlife of Zambia with the level of comfort you are looking for.
While we can't guarantee which animals you will see there are plenty of lions, wild dogs, hyena's, giraffes, elephants, zebra, monkeys, herds of buffalos, different species of antelope and birds and in some cases Rhinos.
It's guaranteed that a Women Safari holiday to Zambia involves amazing encounters with wild animals in authentic African bushland.
How to prepare for your African safari adventure
Some of the most important things you need to know about Women Safaris in Zambia are that it is better to pack light, bring your own water bottle that we will refill for you when you want and favorite snacks you can't live without. For the rest Ntanda Ventures will make sure you will have everything you need and please always ask if you want or need something, we are there for you.
There maybe a lot of driving involved in your safari and then the Zambian sun can be very hot during the day. We advise you to wear cotton and long sleeves. We suggest some brown paper bags for the things we can’t flush down the toilet.
A sun hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are also a must. Comfortable shoes are essential for all the walking you will be doing while on a walking safari. If you want to take pictures of the stunning nature and wildlife, bring a good camera with lots of memory space, extra batteries and maybe a tripod.
Try to keep your packing to a minimum as luggage allowance on some internal flights only allow 15kg in soft bags.
What to bring with you on a safari to Zambia
The obvious things you need to bring with you on safari in Zambia are a passport and visa. You also need to make sure that your vaccines are up-to-date before visiting this country, investigate your flight route as some countries might oblige you for a yellow fever vaccine. Currently the only requirement to enter Zambia is a Covid negative PCR test and a visa maybe applicable to your passport. We recommend an anti-malerial course but please be guided by your local physician.
How to make the most of your Zambia experience
English is the national language in Zambia, the majority of the population have basic English communication skills. We suggest buying a local sim card at the airport on arrival and your guide will always have a cell phone for emergencies. Most Lodges have basic WIFI connections.
Tell us what you want, we take care of the rest. The more you know about Zambia's culture, animals and nature the more you will appreciate it.
Ask questions to the people you meet and our guides, they are more than happy to explain all you want to know.
Women-only safaris are a great way to connect with other women, learn new things, and have fun.
It is our passion to make it a real life changing trip for every woman who visits Zambia with Ntanda Women Safaris.
The best time of year to visit Zambia for a safari
The best time to visit Zambia is between the months of May through October. It is the dry season and animals are easier to spot because they come out in search of water. The weather is also cooler June-August, making a walking safari and hiking more comfortable for visitors who may be less acclimated to heat than locals. April, November and December are our favourite months – these month’s end and the beginning of the rains so you may get short, warm showers which settles the dust and bring some relief from the heat at the end of the year.
TIA -This is Africa
This is Africa so there maybe slight changes to an itinerary but we will always keep you updated.
Stop your clock and get into the wild. Some places operate on solar or no power so this is not the right the place for hairdryers etc. Let your hair down and go wild.
