Description of Luxury Zambia safari vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of Zambia's protected areas of natural beauty, including national parks and the UNESCO-listed Victoria Falls area. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the preservation and conservation of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Zambia's incredible natural environments. This, in turn, provides more funding for park rangers and puts more patrols on the ground, which deters and stops poaching.
Whilst out on safari, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to the wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, Tena Tena Bush Camp is run entirely by solar power, enabling the rooms to have electricity throughout the day and night out in the bush in a sustainable way. You can also learn more about conservation during your trip with a visit to Conservation Lower Zambezi to discover the fantastic work this organisation is doing.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Zambian hospitality. For example, Time + Tide Chinzombo works with Norman Carr Safaris and Chongwe Safaris which are credited as the leaders in responsible tourism in Zambia, with the Time + Tide group sponsoring and organisation various community and sustainability projects, including schools funding, health literacy and ecological education,
This luxury Zambia vacation includes the option for cultural experiences learning about local traditions with trips to local villages, where you can buy authentic souvenirs. For example, meeting the Kunda people in the village of Kawaza and the Goba villages in the Lower Zambezi region. We believe getting to know the destination and the people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
