There is nothing quite like an African Safari Holiday. Beautiful landscapes, eco-friendly accommodations, and the rare chance to see wild animals thriving in their natural habitat, a safari really is a holiday of a lifetime for many, but if you’ve already ticked Kruger National Park, the Serengeti Plains, and the Okavango Delta off your bucket list, it might be time to look for something different…
You could take a gorilla trekking safari in Uganda or Rwanda, or you could take a puma safari in Chilean Patagonia, but if it is conservation, ecotourism, and responsible travel that appeals to you most, the brand-new Zambia Conservation Adventure Safari by Wilderness Safaris, could be the perfect choice for your 2017 holiday!
A six-night departure, set to start in Lusaka, Zambia on 28th October 2017, this bespoke safari is available to just 6 guests, who will have the unique opportunity to interact with anti-poaching researchers and rangers in the Busanga Plains, track Zambia’s last remaining Rhinos on foot, go behind the scenes and into the action of local community initiatives, and learn all about the impact of conservation education through the Children in the Wilderness project.
