The range and possibilities of photographic safaris on offer in Zambia is
impressive. Many visitors to Zambia know what they want - high quality
wilderness and a sense of exclusivity. With your going on Safari in South
Luangwa National Park you have made the right choice.
Viewing mammals is generally better in the dry season, as the sparse vegetation makes visibility easier and the animals congregate around water sources. Early mornings and late afternoons are the best times to go out. However, the wetter, green season offers a totally different perspective of animal life and most often you are rewarded with views of the "youngsters".
Whether you are on an organised safari by one of the lodges, or opt for a more budget possibility to self-drive in your hired Personal Touch car, please don't be rushed and have respect for the environment you are in. No chasing, scaring or annoying animals please! And please do not litter.
Our Personal attention is offered in safari activities, but we strongly recommend expanding your views. South Luangwa and its villages around have so much more to offer for the visiting tourist. True Zambian traditions are often neglected when visiting the area, but with other cultural opportunities, The Personal Touch provides complementary services in the vicinity of the park and with the hire of any of our cars your choices to explore the park and the villages around it are unlimited.
Just to give you a few ideas;
