Aspiring explorers will need to be quick to secure a place on a new escorted Zambia expedition with one of the country’s leading guides, Rod Tether.
The new guided safari is available on limited departure dates from April to July 2012.
Highlights include seeking out the elusive Sitatunga antelope and Pel's Fishing Owl along with elephant and hippo amongst the rich river floodplains of Kasanka, and tracking down the Shoebill Stork, probably the most sought-after bird in the world, by poling through the Bangweulu Swamps. A sojourn at the historic Impandala House – Stewart Gore-Browne’s eccentric English manor house – on the shores of Lake Shiwa Ng'andu, will include a day trip to Kapishya Hot Springs and boat trip on the lake. The trip ends with a stay at Jake and Gillie's Private House on the edge of the world-famous South Luangwa National Park, with game drives to encounter big game including leopard, lion and buffalo.
