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 colour scheme comprises a calm and natural palette of earthy tones, from khaki browns to charcoal greys. Pewter and glass add an effortless yet understated glamour to the furnishings; artefacts such as ostrich eggshells, hides and horns create subtle points of interest and relevance to the lodge's surrounds, whilst natural linens and plenty of texture preserve its simple but sophisticated atmosphere. Stone walls, thatch roofs and long wooden walkways bring natural materials into the interiors, blurring the distinction between inside and outside. The nine..
