Expedition

  • Experience a very different culture

    Zambia is a country of stark contrasts; the hot, bustling and sometimes chaotic cities contrast against peaceful and vibrant rural areas. Colourful food markets are topped up with trinkets and filled with the sound of singing. It cannot fail to enlighten the soul. Prepare to tap your feet and join in with the dancing that you are sure to encounter!

  • Explore a new landscape

    Trekking in Zambia is always a fantastic challenge and can be varied depending on time and ability. For the adventurous, a four-day trek could take you along the remote Batoka Gorge where the team can clamber over boulders, spot wildlife, and experience unforgettable views of the stars. Alternatively, learn about rural life in southern Zambia, spending a few days exploring the Zambezi Flood Plains. Teams are accompanied by an experienced nature loving guide who will teach them everything about the local flora & fauna.

  • Be part of a global community

    In the rural communities, along the shores of Lake Kariba, the team can link up with our long-term charity partner School Club Zambia. Students will get the chance to immerse themselves into community life and make a real and lasting impact on the people that they meet. In the past our teams have worked with school communities to expand classrooms, build chicken coops, dig vegetable gardens, create playgrounds and even help the local tailors club to renovate their sewing room.

  • Appriciate something incredible

    Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is a small national park outside Livingstone which really packs a punch, offering the chance tospot elephant, buffalo, zebra, hippos, giraffe and wildebeest. It is also the gateway to the heart-stopping majesty of Victoria Falls or ‘the smoke that thunders’. A vivid reminder to any keen geographer of the power of water. Experiencing the rainbows that appear over the falls will top off any adventure to Zambia.

What to expect

  • Terrain

    Zambia’s landscape is flat African bushland, intersected with many waterways including the mighty Zambezi. With so many waterways sustaining life through the national parks, teams can be assured of great game viewing on safari. The amazing scenery also provides an unforgettable backdrop to our projects.

  • Culture

    Family, music, food and language are all words that spring immediately to mind to describe Zambian culture. There are a whopping 73 languages spoken in Zambia and a diverse range of beliefs encompassing many traditional religions, as well as Christianity and Islam.

  • Weather

    Summer is a great time to travel. June to August are the winter months, where temperatures are pleasantly warm during the day, dropping considerably overnight. As the water levels throughout the country drop, so the animal sightings around the main rivers increase.

We’re always happy to talk travel and would love to find out more about your ideas.

Please do call or email us for more information, to organise a first meeting, or even just for a chat. We’ll be delighted to hear from you.
