  1. Hi there, in almost 3 weeks we are leaving for our Safari to Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa. We had booked luggage storage with our TO, but he now came back that he had to cancel that, as the company they used to work with became unreliable. I know, there is the possibility to leave luggage with proflight. Anybody made this? Experiences? In addition, we do have the possibilty to leave the luggage at the Amanzi Camp´s office in Lusaka. I am not sure for now, which option is the safest. Thanks for your input. Thomas
  2. Hi there, has anybody recommendation for hotel in the vicinity of Lusaka airport? How about transfer from and to airport? I´ve heard that this should be expensive. Thanks all Thomas
  3. Some of you may remember my all-too-brief trip to the Masai Mara in 2012. My philosophy remains that it's better to go on a brief safari than none at all, especially when a brief one is about all you can afford, and so August 2015 found my partner and me in Zambia, mainly to visit South Luangwa NP and Livingstone. Our flights from the States, which as usual were comprised of a long and convoluted series of connections, necessitated that we spend a night in Lusaka. Rather than opt for a normal hotel in the city, we discovered the charming option of Pioneer Camp. (Dogs are always a welcome addition to small owner-run places like this.) Pioneer Camp, while only 25-30 minutes away from the airport in Lusaka, is set within 25 acres of miombo woodland (a description which may have been taken verbatim from their web site), which gives it a very nice, away-from-the-city feel. It was a pleasant way to unwind after an obscenely long series of flights, and it also gave us the opportunity to wander around the attractive, safari-style chalets while taking unfocused, washed-out photos of otherwise beautiful birds. The next morning we were off to begin the main part of the trip by flying to Mfuwe and staying at Flatdogs Camp, which is a well-situated (lots of wildlife in camp) and affordable option for South Luangwa which I learned about in this nice trip report, though the thread creator doesn't seem to have stuck around ST. More to come as I get photos sorted.
  4. Any expereince of getting a visa on arrival at Lusaka? There isn't a Zambian embassy or consulate here in The Netherlands therefore my passport would have to go to the nearest in Brussels. Takes more time (and yes more expense), I think I could juggle it to ensure I had my visa in time and still have my passport when I need it but obviously it would be a lot easier to get a visa on arrival. We have a pretty tight connection time for our flight to Mfuwe (only about one and half hours) and I am a tad concerned the visa on arrival process could take lots of time. Leading to a mad dash to collect bags (if I dont manage them as carry on) and to get to domestic departures. How far is domestic departures from international arrivals? Any up to date info and advice would be appreciated! Many thanks.
  5. I need a night's accommodation in Livingstone in late August 2015 and a night in Lusaka early September 2015. All I need is some where clean and comfortable to lay my head - nothing fancy. I'd welcome some recommendations.
  6. Anyone traveled this route lately, how is the Lusaka to Chirundu road? Last time we were there; in September 2012, the road was atrocious, pot holes a giraffe could hide in. We also need top up the fuel in Chirundu and would appreciate any advice.
