Zambia has a lot going for it. Apart from being voted as the safest country on the continent to visit, it boasts some of the most unspoilt and wild landscapes in Africa. This remote wilderness provides the opportunity for game rich safaris without the crowds that so many other destinations have. The only bustling area is the country’s most popular attraction; Victoria Falls. But the mighty waters of the Zambezi provide visitors with ample activities, so you can be as active as you want to be. In short, Zambia is the ideal safari destination. Here are our top 10 reasons to visit Zambia…
1. Guided walking safaris in South Luangwa
What better way to experience Zambia’s premier wildlife sanctuary than with your senses (sight, smell, taste, sound and touch)! On a walking safari, your senses are heightened and your adrenalin is racing… and so it should be when you come across a lion on foot!
Being a solo traveller is a two-fold affair! On the one hand you are completely independent, having to think only of yourself and no one else’s likes and dislikes. (Phew!) But on the other you’ll need to carefully consider issues like the extra cost of guides and private transfers, as well as security and safety, single supplements etc.

Our clients often ask us about the best places to eat on their stay in the Winelands. But more often than not, what they really want us to recommend is restaurants with a view! Why stare at the walls when you could look out over fields of vineyards and the towering mountains of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek?
The Winelands are home to some of South Africa‘s top restaurants, and for good reason. The choices are plentiful, and the variety is diverse and simply… delicious. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best restaurants with spectacular views.
