Book a 5 Day Safari Experience in Zambia with Road Travel and go beyond the traditional game drive. Whether you enjoy bird watching, wildlife photography and angling or if you are intrigued by the intimate world of elephant herds, these specialist workshops under the guidance of professionals who are passionate about the African bush, offer the ideal getaways.
Africa has a spellbinding effect on most first time travellers. Many who have grown up on this continent will tell you that Africa will stay in their blood forever, no matter where they might end up in the world – it is home. In the heart of the African subcontinent lies a destination known as “the real Africa”. This is Zambia, where you will find remote wilderness areas, breath taking scenery, wildlife in abundance and a kind hearted people. There, in the midst of the unspoiled African bush, on the northern bank of the Zambezi River, directly opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools World Heritage Site, you will discover Baines’ River Camp.

Join David Rogers in 4 000 square km’s of unfenced wilderness and learn how to get the most out of your camera gear and your own creativity. The Zambezi, Africa’s fourth largest river, sets the scene, whilst the well-equipped boardroom is the ideal venue for workshop sessions and image editing.
