A walking safari gives you the chance to see Zambia’s game – big and small – close up

Even in England, walking is the best way to travel if you want to see everything and absorb the atmosphere of the local countryside.  So imagine the sensation of taking a walking safari through some of the most fascinating areas of Zambia. You’ll wander from one small, tented safari camp to the next – guided by knowledgeable professionals – and along the way you’ll discover the wildlife of the South Luangwa National Park and the Mupamadzi River.

But your feet do get a holiday too – you’ll also take game drives into the deep bush surrounding the Luangwa River and watch the wildlife of Tena Tena.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

  • It was a complicated and very individual trip, and several changes were made by me during the planning. None of this seemed to worry Ayesha and everything went according to plan.
