We still have space on our Zambia with the Experts Safari, a fantastic opportunity to explore Zambia’s top parks with two of the best wildlife photographers in the business: Jonathan Scott, presenter of the award-winning BBC show Big Cat Live, and legendary Zambian naturalist and BBC guide Phil Berry. This once-in-a-lifetime trip takes a very small group of photographers and safari-goers into the wilds of the South Luangwa National Park for some of the best game viewing in Southern Africa.

Throughout the safari accommodations are quite luxurious – including the (recently refurbished as of May 2010) Mfuwe Lodge, home to the famous annual elephant “lobby” migration, the private and intimate Chongwe River House and the classic African estate of Shiwa N’gandu . The group will spend mornings and evenings on game drives – taking advantage of the best lighting conditions and most active wildlife. Afternoons are at leisure with time for a siesta, catching up in your travel journal or even enjoying a spa treatment in the Bush Spa. Each day Jonathan and Phil (and other local experts) will provide insight into photography and wildlife issues in the South Luangwa, as well as one-on-one time with guests who desire additional photographic instruction.

There are also two great optional extensions: you can take a pre-trip extension to explore the Lower Zambezi with Jonathan, and/or take a post-trip journey to Kasanka with Phil to see the fruit bat migration. Check out the video below for a glimpse into this amazing annual event:

There are only two spaces left (and possibly two additional spaces dependent on confirmations), so act now to reserve your spot! The pre and post trips both have four remaining spaces.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
