Plan ahead! Those are the words of advice that Diane Ebzery, owner of African Portfolio gives travelers considering an African safari this winter.
"There is no better way to escape the holiday craze and the winter doldrums than by treating yourself to a safari for the soul," Ebzery explains.
Winter is the ideal time to experience Africa's "emerald season" where magnificent sunsets, a wealth of migratory birds, crystal clear night skies and occasional dramatic tropical downpours, form the backdrop, providing a unique and unforgettable safari experience for photographers, birders and wildlife enthusiasts alike. With walking, driving and boating available, the opportunity to see the birds and animals of Southern Africa is not to be missed.
"For travel in winter 2009, I am really encouraging current and prospective clients to consider Zambia, "the Real Africa", as it is regarded by many as the continent's greatest secret. A trip here can range from the mighty Victoria Falls to the world renowned National Parks of the Luangwa and Zambezi Valley. The fact that the country has, for so long, been largely overlooked as a tourist destination is one of its greatest assets. The wilderness areas are pristine and the country offers its visitors views of the African bush that have not changed for centuries," Ebzery comments.
Ebzery explains that there are many reasons Zambia is an ideal travel destination. Massive lakes, rich wetlands and breathtaking African sunsets contribute to the country's scenic splendor. "For the adventure seeker, the wild Zambezi River is perfect for adrenaline rush activities such as river rafting, canoeing safaris, river surfing and tiger fishing. Zambia is also the land of the legendary African walking safari; big game, abundant birdlife, and raw, pulsating wilderness are what visitors can expect to find in Zambia."
