Safari Seasons
Zambia's general accommodation infrastructure isn't sophisticated. The safari industry however, is small but specialised and the safari accommodations compare very favourably against those found in Botswana and Zimbabwe - this applies as much to the lodges as it does to the seasonal bush camps and the few mobile-tented safaris that operate in the Luangwa, Kafue and Zambezi regions.
