ZAMBIA - HOME OF THE WALKING SAFARI
“Norman Carr was a man ahead of his time and was the bold innovator of the walking safari.”
Walking in the wild offers you a sense of liberation and adrenaline as you walk through the bush wondering what might be hanging around the next bush.
South Luangwa National Park is definitely one of the best parks in Africa due its concentration of wildlife. Also known as “Valley of the Leopards” due to regular sightings. This is where the first walking safari took place. In 2017 the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) declared South Luangwa the first sustainable wildlife park in Africa. The big 4 are all in South Luangwa and the Black Rhino is found in North Luangwa (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 unspoilt. They still offer the feel of the original safari experience of days gone by. We can help you find an affordable walking safari to meet your budget.
