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!
One cannot deny the abundance of lavish spas in Africa, but some (in our opinion) pip the rest! Most spa retreats offer a range of treatments and facilities, but the top-class spas focus on complete holistic healing of the body and mind. The reality is that our lives are busy and stressful, and we need to take the time to rejuvenate ourselves. Most holidays are in essence therapeutic – whether it’s simply being out of the office, disconnecting from everyday life, spending time with loved ones or just focusing on yourself. But a lodge or retreat that also has an excellent spa can take you one step further in wholly restoring body and mind.
In this blog we give you our picks of the best spa retreats in various categories, as well as mentioning a runner up in each…
There are hundreds of safari camps and lodges to choose from in Botswana. Many belong to some of the large safari companies but there are also some more independent beauties, which offer a more ‘off the beaten track’ safari.
The beauty of such remote places is their authenticity (in the true sense of the word!). Although all these camps are very comfortable, what you’ll appreciate most is the experience of being so close to nature.
1. Kwando Tau Pan, Central Kalahari
Wouldn’t you love to be staying at one of only two camps inside an entire reserve, with stunning views of the endless Kalahari horizon? Well that’s what you’ll get at Kwando Tau Pan Camp, situated inside the world famous Central Kalahari Game Reserve right on the edge of the beautiful Tau Pan.
