Look forward to...

Walking through the savannah with an expert guide watching undisturbed animals in their natural habitat.

Soaring over spectacular landscapes on a guided sunrise microlight safari.

Staying in spacious luxury camps.

If sitting in a safari truck gives you achy knees and you wish you could get close-up photographs of the awe-inspiring animals, it's time to head to Zambia.

For the ultimate experience on the African plains, get down and dirty with the game and see life from their point of view.

On our week-long walking safari you'll visit top-quality, remote viewing areas, where there won't be another person in sight (or even ear shot).

You're stalking through waist-high grass, the dry yellow blades brushing your knees. The sun is warm on your back. In front is expansive, wild undergrowth, host to Africa's largest cats; behind you, armed rangers are scouring the surrounding plains for signs of wildlife. Your guide suddenly stops and silently signals for you to slowly approach. Your heart beats faster and faster as you shuffle to his side, following his gaze to the incredible view you've been hunting since sunrise: four lazy lions sleeping on the ground, their chests heaving with each breath, their ears twitching to the beck of pesky flies. There is nothing between you and the most dangerous cat in the world but a few metres of ground and, luckily, a trained expert with a loaded weapon to keep you from being eaten . It doesn't get closer than this.

Intrigued? Here's the lowdown: fly to Zambia and spend a week hopping from luxury camp to luxury camp, walking the plains in the morning and evening to admire the game, and dining on hearty freshly cooked meals.

You'll be bounding out of your spacious luxury tent every morning in anticipation of the incredible sights you'll see that day - from giraffes towering above you to elephants striding across the yellow plains. Finishing the week with a fantastic microlight flight over the plains. Sounds good, right? We think so too.

For a totally intrepid safari experience from a lion's (and bird's) eye view, this is the trip. You'll return home with stories to tell and photos taken so close to the animals, your friends will think you are mad. Just don't try to head off without your guide - one place you don't want to see close up is the inside of a lion's mouth.
