Archived entries for  Zambia

Zambia’s premier attraction is undoubtedly Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. You can stay in either country but most travelers head to Zambia these days. One of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Falls are simply spectacular and when in full flood are the largest falling curtain of water in the world. And you can enjoy an array of activities in the ‘Adrenalin Capital’ of Africa. Visit the Zambia section on our website.

There’s nothing quite like Victoria Falls from a helicopter

“There’s something about a Gin & Tonic, the call of the African Fish Eagle and a tangerine, sunset sky that just has to resonate somewhere in you.” Such are the words of one of our inspired explorers below. And as you’ll see, as the last of our new consultants bring you the final glories of […]

Where there’s smoke there’s… Victoria Falls

Where there’s smoke there’s… Victoria Falls

“Even the greatest literary masters would certainly have fallen silent facing such majestic and everchanging scenery. A human being is totally incapable of describing Mother Nature where she performs with such a might as at the Victoria Falls – there, Man just has to adore her!” - Dr Emil Holub Last week we were in Botswana; this […]

My Trip | It’s My Party And I’ll Fly If I Want To

A Victoria Falls Birthday

I don’t like grey hairs and ticking biological clocks as much as the next person, but all those things getting older brings aside, birthdays should never lose their delight. All that hullabaloo over one person, all that cake… Birthdays should be wondrous events that brighten the world, if only for one day. Like our client, Alicja Suchorska from Poland’s […]

My Trip | In the Heart of Africa

My Trip | In the Heart of Africa

Anne and Mark Thomas, two uprooted Americans who now call Abu Dhabi home, travelled with us through our bombshell consultant Chantelle last year. After Cape Town and Kruger they stopped in Zambia. Sailors, racers, travellers… and so much more, they’re quite capable of telling this story. So I’ll let them take you to Africa for a change. Read their stories, […]

My Trip | From the Zambezi to “Ka-ka-na-ka”

Inside Africa

Meet Andy and Fran Browne, two retired American gringos (their words) living in the wild coastal reaches of Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Married for 38 years, the couple had often dreamed of coming to Africa, to explore a wilderness of a different kind. And so, late last year, they did just that. Planning and booking their trip through our senior consultant, Helen, […]

My Trip | Lori Captures The Victoria Falls

My Trip: Victoria Falls

After the high of Namibia through Lori’s lens, I hit somewhat of a slump. A Tom-Petty free fall. A will-I-ever-receive-photographs-like-Lori’s-ever-again depression. The possibility that Lori went on other African adventures was the only thing that rescued me from the darkness. Motivated by this flicker of hope, I scrounged through our archives. What I found was an adventure that […]

Royal Chundu

Don’t you just want to be here right now? We do. Many of our team of travel experts have stayed here before but a trip to the Relais & Châteaux Royal Chundu Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi never gets old. The Zambezi itself never gets old.

A Birthday on the Zambezi – Royal Chundu

Royal Chundu

The last time I visited Royal Chundu, on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, was in September last year. The area was dry and brittle. This time it was February 2013 and the landscape was wholly transformed. From October the rains arrive in Zambia and the area begins to transform, with the river […]

Let’s Go Birding in Africa – Birding Big Day 2012

Birding Big Day 2012

This Saturday is Birding Big Day 2012 in South Africa. We’re short on twitchers (committed bird watchers) in the Rhino Africa office, but we do have a few members who have more than a passing interest in spotted that elusive LBJ (Little Brown Job). So we thought we would strive to highlight Africa’s fascinating array […]
