REMOTE FLYING IN ZAMBIA

Regarded as one of the most authentic and immersive safari destinations, Zambia is also one of the safest countries in the world. What better way to explore this wild wilderness with REMOTE AFRICA SAFARIS and RASAIR, who are now offering new routes on a seat-in rate basis as well as combinations to Shoebill Island Camp in the BANGWEULU SWAMPS.

RASAIR's Cessna 210 is based in the safari mecca - South Luangwa - at Lukuzi airstrip, only 15 minutes away from Tafika, and for 2019 we have a new seat-in-rate route and a sliding scale of rates. Flying around and booking a Zambian safari is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. SEAT-IN RATES

Stay at TAFIKA CAMP, CHIKOKO TRAILS (South Luangwa) or MWALESHI CAMP (North Luangwa) for at least 3 nights, and you have access to RASAIR seat-in rates (minimum 2 passengers) with a new sliding scale of rates for 2, 3 or 4 passengers.

NEW: Lukuzi ⇄ Lusaka seat-in rate, from US$ 570 pp/way.
 

2. CHARTERS

Convenient routes for a maximum of 4 passengers. Cut transfer time allowing for more safari time.

Charter to/from the historical Shiwa N'gandu, the hidden Bangweulu Swamps, several National Parks, including Kasanka, Kafue and Lower Zambezi, or even Zimbabwe (Mana Pools) or Malawi (Lilongwe or Likoma Island).

3. BANGWEULU PACKAGE

Visiting the Bangweulu Swamps should be on everyone's bucket list. Rare animals like the black lechwe antelope, shoebill and several other species, along with only one camp in this remote destination, make these wetlands a secret paradise.

Stay at any of REMOTE AFRICA SAFARIS' camps (from US$ 535 per night sharing) for 3 nights or more and combine with Shoebill Island Camp (from US$ 650 per night sharing). Link destinations with a RASAIR fly-in from Mwaleshi or Lukuzi airstrip, returning to Lukuzi or Mfuwe (rates from US$ 525 per person Luangwa to Bangweulu to Luangwa).

Remote Africa Safaris is as authentic as it gets. Owned and operated by the Coppinger family, we are thrilled to see their daughter Jen return home as she and her partner Nick are now based at Tafika and gradually taking over the reins from John and Carol. An impressive legacy in every way.

Seychelles

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.

Tafika Camp

Owner run and bush home to John and Carol Coppinger, Tafika Camp is the base camp for Remote Africa Safaris, nestled in the shade of giant Leadwood trees. The remote location makes it ideal for those who really want to get away from it all and experience the bush in the true sense of the word.

Situated on the banks of the Luangwa, the camp provides amazing views of the river with plenty of opportunity to see elephants crossing, hippos wallowing and king fishers darting in and out the river offering a wonderful way to relax when not enjoying walking safaris, cycling trails or day & night game drives!
