Ntanda Ventures has won a leading award-winning tour operator of Africa safaris designed for women by women

Some suggested “The women should go to Zambia with Ntanda venture tour for many reasons, but the most important one is that they will be able experience what it feels like on both sides of life: as tourists and locals. They can see how different cultures live in this beautiful African country while getting a taste of authentic culture themselves at the same time! This way, you not only get your preconceived notions about Africa shattered into smithereens - which I'm sure would make any traveler happy (although maybe not quite so much if those were husband or boyfriend)-but also develop deeper empathy towards other people living around us because no matter where we travel there are always stories worth hearing”.

Travel Tips

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.

  • To enter Zambia you need a negative Covid PCR test done in 72 hours or less of arrival in Zambia
  • Travel insurance with evacuation is required and we do have various medical facilities in Lusaka and around the country.

Great experience - professional yet personal, would highly recommend

I came to Zambia for work and wanted to extend with a few extra days. With a bit short notice and for a holiday weekend Ntanda Ventures and Sonja helped me book a bush break in South Luangwa. Communication was easy and I really enjoyed the professional/knowledgeable but personal connection. My preferences were heard, all my questions answered and we worked together on finding a good fit. I was travelling alone and Sonja quickly understood what I was looking for and made suggestions based on local knowledge and experience, exactly what I needed! Due to unforeseen weather changes we had to make some changes to the plan and Sonja made sure to check with me what I would prefer and be okay with, and checked in with me along the way - everything was taken care of so I only had to enjoy the trip. It was a last minute plan, but she made it very easy and enjoyable for me - if I were to come back I would surely reach out and book through them again.

Just wanted to say thank you for organising our superb trip to the Lower Zambezi! The Royal was absolutely fantastic! Beautifully decorated, comfortable rooms, great service , delicious food and incredible game viewing! We went into the National Park , saw 6 leopards in two days, 2 of which were fighting over territories. A huge herd of buffalo coming down to the watering hole, the Brutal brothers male lions , so many elephants and their babies - we even had one wondering around the camp! Our sightings were endless! The staff have created a wonderful, friendly environment. Everyone is helpful and hospitable, we even had a watercolour art lesson whilst there! Thank you everyone, The Royal is certainly a choice destination and we’ll be back soon!
