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:
