Often described as 'the real Africa', Zambia is without doubt an amazing and rewarding country to visit. With some excellent wildlife experiences, including world class birdlife and big game to rival anywhere in Africa, Zambia is so much less touristy than its more popular neighbours. It has an excellent selection of wildlife parks, with the South Luangwa National Park being the pick and is home to Victoria Falls, Africa's largest waterfall and well know as the adventure capital of Africa. It is also an angler's dream, as the mighty Zambezi River attracts fishermen from around the world in search of the hard fighting tigerfish and the elusive giant vundu.
Although not the easiest country to get around, our overland truck based trips are a perfect way to enjoy Zambia whilst still retaining an element of comfort and security you'll be hard pressed to find when travelling independently.

I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
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.
Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
