Focus On Leopards
13-26 May 2017


Zambia, Southern Africa's best kept secret, features a great diversity of habitat, scenery and wildlife. We can expect a wildlife experience that is difficult to duplicate elsewhere in the world. With its large elephant, hippo, lion and leopard population,, we will experience the magic and sheer visual splendor of the heart of Africa. Of all the animals on the African continent, the leopard can be one of the most elusive and magnificent creatures to capture on film. Their solitary ways, unpredictable habits and superb camouflage, make it a challenge to spot this beautiful cat. The Focus on Leopards safari takes you to the "hot spot" of leopard sightings, the remote Luangwa Valley in Zambia. This area is also a good part of Africa to see the endangered Wild Dog.

Accommodation will be a deluxe lodge and with eight nights in a bushcamp.

Maximum Participants: 8 with 4 photographers per Land Rover
Photographer Leader: TBA

Here the opportunity exists to take night drives in search of nocturnal creatures, especially the elusive leopard which is often found. The Luangwa Valley has been called the "Last Kingdom of the Elephants" and indeed one of the most memorable sights is of elephants venturing across the river, sometimes in groups of over 100 strong.
