At The Classic Safari Company we take pride in knowing our destinations inside out so we recently sent Ella Kiddell on a journey through
Zambia and Zimbabwe to scope out the latest and greatest safari offerings.
Zambia offers one of the last African rivers that has a true flood boasting rivulets
and oxbow lagoons teeming with game and birdlife, whilst neighbouring Zimbabwe delivers arguably some of
the best guiding and wildlife viewing that can be found on the continent.
Whilst travelling in October / November is hot in these parts, with temperatures often exceeding
the high thirties, the game viewing is phenomenal! As wildlife congregates around rapidly diminishing water supplies you’ll witness tense encounters, fascinating interactions and unprecedented behaviour.
Imagine six civet, a band of mongoose, several crested guinea fowl and a couple of nervous
impala all drinking alongside four leopard at a waterhole – it happened right in front of Kanga Camp! Elephants in search of water nonchalantly wander through the Luangwa Valley’s Nkwali & Nsefu Safari
Camps and an abundance of migrating birds, such as carmine bee-eaters (pictured above) flock
to Zambezi Sands River Camp.
Boasting raw wildlife experiences, freely moving game, magnificent river systems, outstanding,
owner operated safari outfits and persuasive pricing a ‘Zim & Zam’ combination is seriously hard to beat!
