MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ZAMBIA
Zambia might be gloriously wild with some of Africa's best game viewing, but we're happy to garnish raw nature with decadent treats. Take our guest who, during a game drive in Kafue National Park, mentioned to his wife that he'd kill for an ice cream. The guide overheard and relayed the information back to camp. Just hours later, the couple turned a corner on their late afternoon drive to discover a freshly built ice cream stand in the bush, with a waiter spooning out the cool stuff. A&K: turning mirages into reality.

Our safari guides, of course, know more about wild animals than ice creams and sorbet. A lot more. Selected for their specialist knowledge and passion for the wilderness, they're part of a multi-centre regional team that has offered luxury travel in Southern Africa for over forty years. Along with 24-hour emergency contact, its size and reach can create flexible itineraries, with long-established local relationships generating unique experiences: behind-the-scenes-tours of Victoria Falls Bridge, and exclusive safaris with leading conservationists.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent Zambian holiday  - imagine wilderness the size of Wales - where the vast watery landscape hum with life including the Kafue red lechwe. It's a wonderful aperitif for Luangwa arguably the continent's finest game park: a stage for expert walking safaris to get up close and personal with the prolific game.

South Luangwa spawns fabulous memories from our returning clients including a perfect sundowner at one of A&K's favourite tented camps, Sanctuary Puku Ridge. As with the ice cream stand, it was a splendid symmetry of time and place, with guests arriving on an escarpment minutes before sunset to discover, to their amazement, a full bar and hot canapés - a perfect paring with the dramatic widescreen views.

Further south the Lower Zambezi National Park, a haven for elephant, hippo and birds, has camps drizzled along the immense valley's serene riverbank. You'll almost certainly want to garland your A&K Zambian safari with Victoria Fall's mile-wide curtain of water. The smoke might thunder but it won't ruin your camera or clothes - our guides carry ponchos and dry bags for off the heavyweight spray. Trust us, these are holiday shots you will not want ruined.
