We selected these particular safari camps in Zambia because they are dedicated to sustainability and making a net-positive impact, and this consciousness enhances the entire safari experience. Where else can you sleep in an elevated ‘birds nest’ before silently moving across the plains in an electric game drive vehicle, allowing you to hear each birdcall? Or stay in a beautiful tent an hour’s drive away from the nearest neighbour, in a private reserve that is attracting wildlife back due to an ambitious ecological protection plan?

Read the full article in The Times to find out what Lisa experienced at the three camps we recommended for her:

  • Chisa Busanga, a beautiful and unique camp in the Kafue that is leading the way in environmentally friendly safaris. They have pioneered the ‘silent safari’, taking game drives and boat safaris in electric vehicles, charged by the solar panels that also power the camp. Stay in a ‘Nest’ suite, raised to give stunning views of the Plains at sunset.
  • The newly built Shawa Luangwa in the South Luangwa National Park introduces the Silent Safari to this region, partnering with extraordinary guide Jacob Shawa. Stay in an individually styled canvas suite on the banks of the Luangwa River in one of the most untouched areas of the park.
  • Brand new, family-run Sungani Lodge, nestled in a magical 25,000 acre private concession. Previously left unprotected for decades, the Davy family have secured it from poaching and the wildlife is returning. The family involved local villagers in the construction, equipping them with building skills for the future.

Our experts are passionate about creating sustainable, responsible safaris to Africa that make a positive impact on people, wildlife and the land. Get in touch with us to start planning your own adventure!
