This year at the Good Safari Guide Awards, Zambia stole the show winning the most sought after prize and a number of other prestigious categories. So for your first African safari holiday we recommend putting Zambia on your list. A Zambia Safari must incorporate the Lower Zambezi and of course South Luangwa National Park. Both boast beautiful wilderness landscapes and abundant wildlife plus luxury safari accommodation in Zambia’s hidden locations. Call today 1300 988 378 to enquire!
Zambia’s safari industry is certainly facing a bright future after taking out numerous awards at this year’s Good Safari Guide Awards.
‘With over three thousand safari lodges, camps and mobile safari operators in Africa there is a need to differentiate between the good safari camps and operators and those that rise above the rest’ said Rosanne Cobb, Editor of The Good Safari Guide, and this is why year after year the Zambian camps and lodges continue to strive ahead of the competition.
Continuously recognised for their outstanding accommodation, contribution to wildlife conservation and guiding teams, here are the winners of the 2011 Awards:
- Best Safari Property in Africa – Winner – Chiawa Camp (Lower Zambezi)
- Best Safari House in Africa – Winner – Chongwe River House, Runner Up – Luangwa Safari House
- Best Mobile Safari Operator – 3rd Place – Robin Pope Safaris
- Best Safari Guiding Team – Runner Up – Robin Pope Safaris
- Best Personal Contribution to Conservation – Grant Cumings (Chiawa Camp)
- Best Contribution to Safari Tourism – Winner – Robin Pope Safaris, Runner Up – Norman Carr Safaris
These awards come as the camps and lodges prepare to open for the summer season, the rains have come and gone and the bush is alive with activity, bursting with colour and wildlife – there is not a better time to visit.
Encompass Africa highly recommends Zambia to the first time safari travellers and safari purists. It is also the ideal location for family safaris, small group safaris and romantic getaways and honeymoons.
From exclusive safaris to the Liuwa Plains with Robin Pope and photography safaris with expert Jonathan Scott to stunning wedding and honeymoon locations, Zambia promises an African bush experience you will never forget. For families too, Zambia is an adventure playground even for children as young as 4.
