Zambia JOURNEYS

Unique safaris in Luangwa, Kafue and Bangwelu

The pristine wilderness makes Zambia to the ultimate Untamed destination! One of the 'wildest' places on earth can be found in North Luangwa National Park, known for large herds of buffalo and herds of lions. Only a few tour companies have access to this unique area and then only for walking safaris. Adjacent South Luangwa is more open but no less unique with rare inhabitants such as the native Thornicroft giraffe and Cookson's wildebeest. Luambe National Park is located between the two parks, which closely resembles its neighbors in terms of fauna, with the added bonus of many hippos. In the Bangwelu swamps , often called the 'mini-Okavango delta', you can see the rare shoebill as well as the black lechwe. The red variety of this swamp antelope can be found in Kafue - the oldest and largest game reserve in Zambia - with horse antelope and the 'big five'. The Liuwa Plains are unique in that tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra pass through here every year, the second largest 'migration' in Africa. On the border with Zimbabwe, past the town of Livingstone , Zambia offers an even more unique spectacle: the Victoria Falls , the largest waterfalls in the world.

OUR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES

Maud and Stephan

Dear 'Untamed',   We have just returned from a fantastic trip through Botswana, Zambia and Malawi! How we enjoyed it! As soon as we arrived at Victoria Falls airport, we noticed how well everything was arranged. During the trip we did not have to worry for a single moment. Everywhere - at every airport and at every accommodation - someone was ready to help us or take us from A to B. We could blindly trust that everything was well arranged. That was delicious!    Boundless k…

Family Swart

The experiences from the arrival in Savuti to the return flight to the Netherlands are indescribable. But I'm going to try anyway... After a fascinating flight over the bush where we saw huge families of elephants, buffalo and hippos, we arrived at Savuti Camp. As soon as we wanted to walk to our cabin, we were warmly welcomed by a large elephant with flapping ears and raised trunk. The next day, on the way to the toilet room, a whole family of elephants was grazing right by the gangplanks. Lat…

Unfortunately my trip to Zambia has already come to an end. It was really really great! This was my fifth time in Africa and Zambia is really my country. Beforehand I could only hope that it would be so beautiful and well arranged! What beautiful things we have seen, such as 2 shoebills, >5000 black lechwes, about 300 hippos right in front of the tent, beautiful landscapes, 3 leopards, two elephants 50 cm in front of my tent, a cerval, a bushbaby (had been on my wish list for 8 years), a snak…

What a wonderfully composed holiday trip we have had! After the overnight stay in the beautiful Kilimanjaro Country Lodge we were picked up for a very long journey on asphalt and gravel roads with the necessary potholes, through the park. With the ferry across the Kafue River to the *****Leopard Lodge. Elize and her team were waiting for us with the announcement that lions and a hippo named Max regularly came into the camp. In the evening we saw lions lying by the campfire. A day later they were…

We were very satisfied with the accommodations that Griet had for us  selected, with Huntingdon House in the tea estates of Malawi in particular really looking  jump out. We were spoiled there and what a beautiful house and surroundings! We highly recommend it for all Malawi travelers. Also the accommodation in  South Luangwa NP (Croc Valley) and Liwonde NP (Mvuu) was amazing. We  really enjoyed the luxury tent by the river in South Luangwa  and the nice chalet in…
