[COVID COMMENT] Just answer one question...

Just answer one question...


If you could get on a plane and head anywhere in Africa, where would you go?
I was asked this question over the weekend as I was doing an intensive 17km walk. Without hesitation, I knew exactly where I would be teleported to if it were possible. I would love to be on foot, feeling the sun on my back, hearing life all around and smelling the African bush.
I would love to be on a walking safari in Zambia.

Even though this is one of the oldest safari destinations in Africa, itis a mystery to most in our industry. As a destination, it tends to have longer safaris with very high return stays, yet most agents I know have never sold a safari here. The camps and lodges are generally owned by passionate individuals who offer truly authentic experiences, embracing a sense of adventure with a true commitment to the environment in which they operate, yet larger corporate safari entities individually get more support than Zambia as a whole.

Zambia is a fascinating and powerful place. It is the home of walking safaris and remains truly authentic. Zambia is waiting to be discovered by those who want to connect deeply with Africa.

I answered the above question. My question to you is:
Have you sold Zambia?

Little Chem Chem

Bordering Little Chem Chem is an acacia forest within the typical landscape of the Tarangire National Park and its impressive Baobab trees. The camp overlooks the freshwater Lake Burunge with the Babati mountain range as a magnificent backdrop on the south-west. The north east faces the hills of Tarangire in the distance. Known as the sunrise camp, Little Chem Chem is home to early morning displays of glory.

Set on the earth, the five vintage tents have a large bedroom with rocking chair and study desk, a vanity area with dressing room and an en suite bathroom with running hot water shower and flushing toilet.

The atmosphere at Little Chem Chem is welcoming, elegant and oozing authenticity of a bygone era. The luxury of sharing 16’000ha with only 10 guests sets the ideal stage where one can perfectly blend into the wilderness. Lions roam around the camp and call each other at night; stately elephants march down to Lake Burunge to get a sprinkling of fresh water; cheetahs hunt on the plains facing the lake; leopards, eland and lesser kudu can be seen in the more dense woods in the inner part of the wildlife management area. And wherever there is water, the bird life is abundant and colourful.

Little Chem Chem is the ultimate setting from which to explore on foot, slow down and indulge in a sensual African safari.
