Chinzombo had us at the private pool. And we loved the eco-friendly air-conditioner above our bed. Killer leopard sightings at this luxury safari camp were a bonus.
You don’t really want to see lions on a walking safari in Zambia (just small critters). Being exposed out in the bush with Norman Carr Safaris is thrilling enough.
Our memory of elephants plodding to the Zambezi River still lingers. They say an elephant never forgets. But you never forget an elephant.
It’s like a scene from “Out of Africa.” Except that instead of Karen Blixen’s Kenya bush tents, Chiawa Camp hugs the Zambezi River in Zambia.
Africa gets under your skin. Since our trip, our dreams are filled with a kaleidoscope of images of wild African animals. Here are more photos and a video.
Crocs and hippos? Just part of the experience of canoeing the Zambezi River. It’s our “most dangerous activity,” says our safari camp guide.

Canoeing with crocodiles. Walking in the company of buffalo and baboons. And drifting off to sleep in remote bush camps. Zambia is the “real” Africa.
We’re finally heading to Africa on safari! An African safari has been a dream trip for years. And now in 2013, we’ll be winging our way for the first time to South Africa and Zambia on safari.
