Anderson Says: a Peer Review

01 December 2016

ZAMBIA: We have said it all... but hope that you will now be inspired by your industry peers who travelled to our camps in October. Anderson Currie penned the group's thoughts:
Zambia is the home of the walking safari, but it is so much more than just that. Many of us have a misconception of what actually goes on here.

Suggested Itinerary: Legends of Zambia
 
IN SUMMARY (all quotes from Anderson):
  • GUIDING — The guides are experts and we didn't meet one guide who wasn't from Zambia, often having attended the secondary school affiliated with the respective camps.
  • WILDLIFE — Whether on foot or in a canoe, the power of the animals is immediately evident and incredibly humbling.
  • INTENSITY — The mood on safari can change in a heartbeat. One moment you'll be discussing ant lions and the next walking with wild dogs actively on the hunt or walking directly through a herd of 1000 buffalo.
  • REMOTENESS — The ethos of Zambia is an interaction with nature that allows us to take a step back in time.
  • IMPACT — The stewards of Zambia are observers, listeners and care deeply about the health of the country and the world at large.
  • CAMPS — Do not think rustic, rather a beautiful style and safari chic (that is from Classics!)
We think he encapsulated it beautifully at the end:
Once a person experiences the simultaneous peace and power, it is impossible not to long for more, which is why there are so many repeat clients in Zambia, and it's the top choice for many of the most seasoned guides.

The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the sycamore fig tree, the tree of life, renowned for their abundant fruit, which feeds a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bushbuck, green pigeons and many more. The camp pathways meander between the large riverine trees. Machaba Camp's 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine treeline on the Khwai River, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From these tented verandas one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of ca..
