When it comes to wildlife, Zambia is blessed with both diversity and abundance. Zambia is one of the least travelled, yet most rewarding wilderness experiences in Africa, and can be romantically defined as wild and remote.
The most rewarding way to enjoy this beautiful part of the world is in the safe hands of the experts. Cape Tours has partnered with Robin Pope Safaris to offer the best private walking safaris in Zambia; exclusive game lodges and some of the finest luxury houses in Africa.
Robin Pope’s unmatched knowledge of the region enables Cape Tours to create a safari that is tailor to meet your exact objectives and expectations. In partnership with Robin Pope, Cape Tours can tailor make a range of safaris throughout Zambia, to include the Lower Zambezi, Kafue and South Luangwa National Park.
Some 450 kilometres downstream from Victoria Falls the great Zambezi River widens into the fertile floodplains of the Lower Zambezi valley. Rocky escarpments, scrub bush and over 120 km of river frontage sustain prolific and varied wildlife.
The river is a massive attraction to this park - to spend time boating, drifting, canoeing on this extraordinary river with breathtaking views all around is a wonderful experience. Amongst the reeds and grass of the islands are many water birds - and you can silently drift so close to both the wildlife and the birds you want to hold your breath. Activities include game drives, walking, fishing and canoeing safaris which are a particular highlight
On the western border there is a very special tributary, the Chongwe River, which is superb for canoeing or walking. At the foot of the escarpment the river drops over a cliff, with the falls creating a large pool. The local community believes this is a place of magic - it is not hard to see why.
Kafue National Park is one of the largest in Africa with many varied habitats: The Kafue, Lufupa and Lunga Rivers with adjoining peaceful stretches of riverine vegetation, dambos and wetlands, extensive miombo woodland with seasonal floodplains and swampland in the north. Owing to this diversity, Kafue is blessed in wildlife which includes common species such as puku, red lechwe, Defassa waterbuck, buffalo and wildebeest, together with roan, sable, Oribi and Lichtenstein’s hartebeest. There is a high density of lion, while leopard are common in central parts; species like cheetah and wild dog are seen too.
South Luangwa National Park is situated by the Luangwa River, an impressive watercourse that supports high densities of game along its bank. The Luangwa is flanked by mopane woodland, scrub, savannah and low hills. Over 60 large mammal species occur here including elephant, buffalo, puku, common waterbuck, and kudu. Unique subspecies of wildebeest (Cookson’s) and giraffe (Thornicroft’s) occur only in the Luangwa Valley. Lion viewing is excellent and Luangwa is renowned for one of the highest leopard densities in Africa.
The area and Robin Pope Safaris is perhaps even better known for pioneering walking safaris.
