Often described as 'the real Africa', Our Zambia tours explore one of Africa's most amazing and rewarding country's to visit.
Zambia offers some of the best safari tours in Africa, boasting excellent wildlife experiences, including world-class bird-life and big game to rival anywhere in Africa. Our clients on our Zambia tours often remark that Zambia is so much less touristy than its more popular neighbours.
Our Zambia tours will take you to a variety of wildlife parks, with the South Luangwa National Park being the pick which is home to Victoria Falls, Africa's largest waterfall and well know as the adventure capital of Africa'.
Our Zambia tours are also an angler's dream, as the mighty Zambezi River attracts fishermen from around the world in search of the hard fighting tiger fish and the elusive giant vundu.
Although not the easiest country to get around, our Zambia tours are a perfect way to experience Zambia whilst still retaining an element of comfort and security you'll be hard-pressed to find when travelling independently. Safaris in Zambia are a once-in-a-lifetime experience - book one today.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later.
Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful.
Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!
Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.
I was pleased and impressed with the experience in booking and obtain all necessary documents in a timely manner. I am looking forward to my tour and hope the ground experience it just as good. This trip is my dream/bucket list trip.
Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know.
I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!
