Exhilarating to the point of addiction…that’s what walking with big game feels like if you’ve only ever seen animals from a safari vehicle. Expert Africa offers a safari experience in the South Luangwa – Zambia’s premier park – whereby the second person essentially safaris for free. Staying in at least two of Norman Carr Safari’s five well-established camps (Kapani, Kakuli and Mchenja, which offer a mixture of driving and walking activities; and Luwi and Nsolo, focusing almost solely on walking safaris), you’ll enjoy top-notch guiding, learn to sniff out elephants and to follow the tracks of hyenas.
You don’t need to be especially fit to walk in Zambia – the walks are about taking time to spot the signs of the wildlife and to learn how the ecosystems work.

Walks cater for a maximum of six guests, but between two and five is the norm.Read the full article...
