Travel Tips and Guides for Zambia

Over the years the Original Travel team has been to Zambia a number of times. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of the destinations we send our clients, so take a look at what our very own Original Travellers have to say about Zambia in our travel blogs:

Our Coolest Combos for 2017

Dynamic duos: think gin and tonic, French and Saunders, pineapple and pizza… okay, maybe not that last one, but the fact remains that some things are just better together - greater than the sum of their parts and thus elevated to legendary status (definitely not that last one, then). The same principles apply to travel - some destination double acts just work. With that in mind, we got to thinking (always dangerous) about our ultimate cool combos list, the jeans and white t-shirt of the holiday world, if you will. With our own cool combination of insider intel on the latest flight routes and knowledge of where's hot right now (in both senses of the word), we present the following perfect pairings...

Where we're going in 2017

It can be difficult to keep up with the best 'it' destinations of the moment but we have the inside track on the hottest hotels and activities across the globe. We selflessly visit all the locations we recommend to ensure that the sea on your private beach really is as crystal clear as it looks in the PR images, that you really can see wildlife from your safari tent and that the buzzing bar next to your boutique hotel really is, well, buzzing. So when you speak to one of our team, you can rest safe in the knowledge that they know the destination like the back of their hand. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it - here's where the Original Travel team is off to in 2017...

Where You've Been in 2015

As your travel guardian angels we often write about and share our experiences of the destinations we've been lucky enough to visit, but enough about us, let's talk about you. Let's talk about the amazing places and experiences we've organised for our lovely clients this year. We're talking intrepid honeymoons, adventurous sabbaticals, secret beach breaks, fun-filled family getaways, cultural escapades and much, much more. We've sent people to over 100 countries so far this year (102, to be precise) and here are just a few of our favourites...

Five Ultimate African Safari Experiences

The Swahili word safari, meaning long journey, was first introduced into the English language in the nineteenth century. Fast forward to 2015 and the term has come to represent a whole raft of bucket list experiences, from walking safaris to canoeing, horse riding and even flying. Discovering wildlife from giraffe to lion, lemur to leopard and everything in between. While a safari holiday may represent a significant investment, it is a truly once in a lifetime opportunity to see nature in its rawest and most beautiful form; never failing to impress even the most hardened travel nut. Speaking of travel nuts the Original Travel Africa team have compiled their own ultimate safari experiences, from their favourite parks and reserves to the very best guides, lodges, activities and beaches to combine with, just to whet your appetite…

Africa: a Continent in Crisis?

Let's be honest, it's been something of an annus horribilis for Africa. Kenya, Mali and Algeria (and others) face ongoing security concerns and the Ebola virus has dominated headlines, while the Oscar Pistorius trial became another negative media circus, all making 2014 a year Africa would like to forget in a hurry.

Which African Safari Are You?

African safaris are not, in our humble opinion, marmite scenarios; rather something absolutely everyone should try and will, undoubtedly, love. Even if you're a seasoned safari-pro, there's still more to try and if you've never done it before, there's no time like the present. So, what type of safari animal are you?

Big Cat Safaris: Go Wild!

After a once in a lifetime holiday? Nothing beats spotting a big cat. Yes, yes, we all love a lumbering elephant or a cute orang-utan, but for the ultimate in wildlife watching it has to be one of the magnificent moggies that prowl around the wilder parts of almost every continent on Earth. Here are our favourite big cat safaris to see these, the ultimate predators, in all their glory.

Wild Walking Safari in Zambia

Luxury holidays to Zambia have never been so appealing, with 2014 being the 50th anniversary of the country's independence, and a handful of exciting new camps opening.
