Day 1

Arrival in Lusaka

Upon arrival at Lusaka International Airport (LUN) we welcome you and will transfer you to the lodge where we do the final preparations for the Kwalata Safari. Kwalata is the collective noun for Sable and Roan antelopes in the Lozi language. Accommodation in chalets. Meals are own account.

Day 2-3

Chunga Area / Central Kafue National Park

After breakfast we start our Kokomo Safari. We head west and enter the Kafue National Park through the Nalusanga Gate. The Kafue NP is the largest national park in Zambia. It is bigger than Slovenia. The lifeline is the Kafue River. The animals will concentrate near the remaining waterholes and along the river during the dry season. Everything can be found here except the rhino. We explore the area on game drives. An optional boat cruise is possible. Camping. (BLD)

Ngoma Area / Southern Kafue National Park

We move on to the Southern part of the Kafue NP. This area is dominated by mature Teak forest, Kalahari Sands and the Nanzhila Plains, a big open area where Lion, Cheetah, Roan, Sable antelopes can be found. This area is home to the rare endemic Black-cheeked Lovebirds / Agapornis nigrigenis. We explore the area on game drives. Camping. (BLD)

  1. :

    Totally loved my Safari with Zamsato Ltd. As a single traveler its always difficult to go on these types of excursions on your own, but Daniel (owner of Zamsato) was a great guide and very easy to get along with. He took care of every detail of the safari and it was all meticulously planned. Daniel also has great knowledge of the habitat and wildlife ranging from the Elephants to the insects, and everything in between. I visited strait after the rains, so there was lush growth hiding the game, but Daniel still spots and points them out and he was far quicker with his camera than I was, so nothing was missed.

  2. :

    Had a fantastic tour with Daniel of Zamsato Tours. We are actually on our last day at Livingstone after a morning walking safari in Mosi Oa Tunga National Park and an afternoon walk on the tracks around the Victoria Falls. The highlight of our 8 day Kwalata Safari was the 4 days of camping at two sites in Kafue National Park, at Kasabushi Camp & Hippo Bay. Daniel’s expertise in guiding has made our trip (4 adults from Australia) truly memorable. He has extensive knowledge of the animal life we have observed, and not just the lion, elephant, wildebeest, impala, kudu, puku, rhinoceros that we saw, but also the numerous bird species. He is the guide, driver & chef providing us with basic but nutritious & plentiful food. But is his extensive knowledge of the Zambian environment that is his skill. We were usually alone in the sites that we visited as he explored the remote locations of central Kafue.
    We highly recommend using Zamsato Safaris.

  3. :

    Finished a terrific​ tour through KAFUE NP as part of a group of four with Daniel this morning. The tour was well thought out, combining comfortable camping in the remote National Park where the wild life was plentiful and the 4 days of camping comfortable. Daniel was personable and extremely knowledgeable about the habitats, names and behaviours of the animals and birds encountered. The food was wholesome, varied and catered for our individual needs, or mine to be exact. Two game drives a day combined with Daniel’s expertise meant that we sighted a vast array of wild life that surpassed our expectations. A commendable tour I would highly recommend.
