Mfuwe 2Zambia is a magical country in Southern Africa that is off the beaten tourist track. It holds a special place in our hearts for African safaris here at Africa Adventure Consultants. South Luangwa National Park is at the core of what is special about Zambia – a park renowned for its incredible game, with huge numbers of hippos and leopards, as well as unique species of giraffe and zebra. On top of that, there is prolific bird life. Mfuwe 3

At the gateway to this park lies Mfuwe Lodge. Tucked beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany trees, its thatched buildings are arranged around the banks of two lagoons where wildlife streams through on a constant basis. Today we want to share a few photos and words with you about of the kind of characters that Mfuwe staff constantly find wandering about the grounds. It’s a magical place to start a Zambian adventure!

Mfuwe 4‘In most parts of the world the front lawn is a much treasured and carefully nurtured area…and woe betide the neighbour’s cat or the furtive mole that should dare to trespass…Mfuwe 7

We too try to at least keep our lawn watered and as green as possible…but when it doesn’t actually rain for about seven months of the year, and when a variety of 4-legged visitors treat it as both a bed and a meal table…well, all you can do is welcome all comers…and keep the camera handy!’

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.
