In partnership with The Unpackaged Travel Company (ATOL 6195), I run a select number of wildlife holidays each year.These are based in some of the most spectacular locations around the globe, and draw on my experiences in the field.
Wild Zambia with Simon King *only 2 spaces left
Wednesday 11 October to Saturday 21 October 2017
The Nsefu sector is Simon’s favourite region of South Luangwa. It has very low numbers of human visitors but a huge wealth of wildlife. Simon has witnessed leopard, lion and wild dog kills in the open areas, and spectacular encounters with elephant, hippo, crocodile and the huge variety of birds that frequent the region. These include dazzling carmine bee eater colonies that nest in the high banks of the river – a sight and sound that stays with you for ever. These are some of the reasons he keeps returning to this destination to make films. This is also why he has chosen to share this spectacular wilderness with you.
Nsefu Camp, run by Robin Pope Safaris, has been Simon and his team’s base for film shoots in South Luangwa and he has come to know, admire and trust the staff and infrastructure there. The food is good, the service friendly and accommodating, the guides and scouts knowledgeable and the opportunity for adventure, ever present.
In addition to game drives, by day and night, to watch the great predators, elephants and other magical wildlife of the region you will have the opportunity to go on walking safaris and use purpose built hides – getting that little bit closer to the atmosphere and spirit of the place and its natural inhabitants. Your stay will be peppered with magical surprises that will make this a memorable and unique trip – whether you are a frequent visitor to the African continent or new to safaris.
Each of the six rondavels have double or twin beds, air conditioning and spacious en suite bathroom. Whilst comfy and well appointed, the accommodation retains a real sense of traditional safari values – simple elegance with the emphasis on the wild world outside.
Maximum of 12 guests. This holiday is ATOL protected (ATOL 6195)
Price guide per person sharing twin/double room: £8,995 (a single supplement will apply).
