Celebrate Zambia’s 50th Anniversary with African Travel, Inc.

Zambia is among the world’s most peaceful countries, having faced no civil unrest since her independence on October 24, 1964. Celebrate the value of freedom and democracy while commemorating her 50th Anniversary with an African Travel, Inc. safari exploring the nation’s diverse ecosystems and the delightful interior parks that are often referred to as the “gems of Africa.”Situated just beyond Victoria Falls, Zambia provides visitors with an exclusive safari experiencethat is remarkably remote yet teeming with wildlife. Experience unrivaled game viewing and discover the true meaning of unspoiled wilderness on African Travel, Inc.’s “Zambia: Leopards, Lions and Tiger Fish.” This eight-day winged safari ventures to South Luangwa National Park, where walking safaris were first pioneered, and the massive wildlife sanctuary of Lower Zambezi National Parkon a unique and heart-pumping adventure.Unencumbered by the restrictions and noise of a land cruiser, prepare to discover a more intimate perspective of the bush on a walking safari through South Luangwa National Park. This park is regaled as one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa and boasts an extremely dense concentration of leopards – the most elusive of the “Big Five.” Great numbers of lions and wild dog also patrol the region, hunting the seemingly limitless herds of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala and kudu. A walking safari allows you to get closer than ever to these graceful beasts while simultaneously appreciating the smaller denizens of the bush that too frequently escape notice. However, to cover more ground, feel free to hop aboard a safari vehicle and search for the 400 different documented species registered in the park.

Next, take a short flight to your luxury bush camp in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park. Elephants and impalas frequently wander through the grounds, drawn to the idyllic location under a canopy of huge Winterthorn Acacias. Explore the pristine wilderness while canoeing down the Zambezi channels or taking a quiet walking safari with an armed scout. This area is known for its phenomenal bird watching , which is unsurprising considering it is also one of Southern Africa’s best fishing locales. You may even choose to indulge in one of the chef’s daily catches before immersing yourself in the brilliant starlit skies that can only be seen in the wilderness.

Zambia: Leopards, Lions and Tiger Fish” is an eight-day exploration of Zambia with four nights in South Luangwa National Park and three nights in Lower Zambezi National Park. Prices start at $7,065 per person.
