Photographics and Open Vehicle Game Safaris

All of Zambia’s safaris and game lodges offer superb photographic opportunities, either from a walking safari or an open vehicle. Good low-lighting conditions and rich colours abound on early morning and late evening game drives or walks.

Tips: a good zoom lens, 200mm or longer will prove very useful on safari. Bring plenty of film, it’s not always available in Zambia. Be sure to carry your equipment in a well-padded heat and dust-proof case. Only print film processing is possible in Lusaka, not slide.

Book into an exclusive bush camp, in or adjoining one of the National Parks. Get wined and dined and pampered in tasteful bush style and head out in the early mornings and late afternoons for some spectacular game viewing from the comfort of a well-padded open vehicle.

Your game guide and tracker will ensure you don’t miss a thing, and will reveal fascinating insights about all you see, from the tiniest insect, the vegetation and the seasons, to the mating behaviour of lions and the thrill of the kill.

Sit back in awe of the wonder that nature reveals when we take time to watch her ways and the symbiosis of her virgin state.

Night drives by vehicle are great evening entertainment in the bush and beats city nightlife hands down!
