Zambia

Why Choose a Zambian Wildlife Safari?

When you consider that Zambia has first class wildlife; fewer visitors to deter you from your once in a lifetime wilderness experience; some of the best guiding on the continent; night and walking safaris; and accommodations which are intimate, stylish, and models of low impact tourism, then there is no better value than Zambia for an African wildlife safari. As Tanzania increases in value, Zambian safaris are now more competitively priced.

Zambian Road Safaris

Zambia's tourist industry has been dominated by fly in and out safaris to its national parks, and for some customized itineraries, flying remains the best choice. MTT can put together any kind of safari for you, including by air. But in other cases, there is no better way to explore Zambia than by road in your own private, comfortable, and hardy safari vehicle. Road safaris in Zambia are MTT's specialty. Both northern and southern sectors of Kafue National Park are best seen in their entirety on a circular route that can begin or end in Livingstone. The off the beaten path gems in Zambia's north - Mutinondo Wilderness and Shiwa. N'gandu Private Estate - are best accessed by road. A popular route for the last few years is South Luangwa National Park, Luambe National Park, and North Luangwa National Park, returning to Lusaka via the Great North Road. You can fly in and out of the increasingly popular Liuwa Plains National Park in Western Zambia or you undertake a bigger adventure and drive via Kafue National Park and returning via the Upper Zambezi River and Livingstone. The bat migration in Kasanka National Park in October/November is one of Zambia's greatest wildlife spectacles. Allow us to drive you there. MTT always has an experienced driver/guide behind the wheel who is your conduit to Zambia for the duration of your stay.


Zambian Festivals

The dates of Zambian festivals are unreliable making them difficult for international visitors to attend. Several exceptions are the Kulamba in Eastern Zambia of the Chewa people held the last weekend in August and the Ncwala of the Ngoni people, also in Eastern Zambia, held at the end of February. Both can be combined with wildlife safaris in South Luangwa National Park.


Lusaka City Tours

Local flights to and from Zambia's primary tourist destinations are scheduled so efficiently around international arrival and departures that visitors can often bypass Lusaka, or at most, have to stay one night pre- and post-safari. But there are enjoyable ways to spend a few days in Lusaka. We have a short list of destinations and activities from which to choose. We provide the vehicle and driver/guide.
