Wilderness Safaris Zambia
have long since managed the elegant River Club
at Victoria Falls
. And now they have cherry picked more of Zambia's prime locations and have built beautiful intimate safari camps that showcase the wildlife and natural surroundings as well benefiting the neighboring community. Travellers to Zambia generally go through Livingstone
, a well organized town near the Victoria Falls
and a departure point for lots of fun adrenalin adventure activities surrounding the Falls and the Zambezi River
. Toka Leya
is a superb Premier Camp nearby.
The 2,25 million hectare Kafue National Park
offers an authentic African safari
experience in very remote luxury camps. Safaris are led by excellent, incredibly knowledgeable local guides and guests get to commune with nature like nowhere else in the world. The South Luangwa
is where walking safaris were first conceptualized. Zambia's wildlife sanctuaries are home to many endemic subspecies of animals and 740 species of birds. The Zambian people are incredibly friendly, engaging and keen to share their fascinating culture.
Our African Safari Consultants
have been incredibly privileged to visit almost all of the Wilderness Safaris
camps and are able to advise you on seasonality, accessibility, luxury levels, how to combine the different camps and eco-systems and get the most out of your African Safari
Nestled in the northwestern corner of Kafue National Park's vast Busanga Plains, Kapinga has the benefit of being a stone's throw from some of the most significant wetland resources in Africa, and the area is also wonderfully unspoilt and devoid of human developments - making it a wildlife hotspot of note. In complete harmony with its environment, the camp was built and designed to make the most of its natural surroundings.
Slapbang in the centre of the picturesque Kafue National Park's Busanga Plains and adjacent to one of the Zambezi River's permanent channels, Shumba Camp is known for a wealth of game - including hundreds of lechwe, puku, oribi, hartebeest, wildebeest, zebra and buffalo - who in turn attract a whole slew of predators like lion, cheetah and wild dogs.
