There's nothing like a walking safari through the Zambian bush in late afternoon, when the sun hangs low on the horizon, and the animals begin their evening treks to the watering hole. That breath-catching moment when a family of elephants crack the silence with their footsteps as they cross the trail just in front of your group. The walking safari was invented in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, which is home to such large animal concentrations its been nicknamed the "crowded valley." But that crowd is limited to herds of elephant, buffalo, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, and giraffe, plus big cats like leopard, not tourists, as it also has one of the lowest people to animal ratios in Africa! Zambia's other major draw is Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. And visitors can get closer to "The Smoke that Thunders" from the Zambian side than neighboring Zimbabwe, with an adrenaline inducing opportunity to sit in a pool practically at the edge of the drop-off.
MTS operates a private Zambian adventure that begins with a walking safari through South Luangwa National Park, where you'll experience the freedom of Africa's untamed wilderness on foot by day, and a luxurious bush camp at night. And finishes with a stay at the five-star Stanley Safari Lodge, from which Victoria Falls can be witnessed.
