Get Started


At ZambiaAway we aim to give you the safari experience that you want and that you deserve.  For us that means no pre-prepared itineraries or packages and allowing you, our client, to decide where you go and what you do.  Of course, our extensive knowledge of Zambia and its lodges allows us to make recommendations to help you get the best safari possible, but in the end YOU have the final say over your itinerary.

ZambiaAway is a sub-section of AfricaAway, itself a branch of the highly regarded tour operator, The Away Company, noted for quality travel in both Africa and Spain.

“We go to great lengths to plan the smallest details ensuring the highest quality experience for each and every one of our guests.”

Unlike many other tour operators and agents, we are an independent, privately-owned company, with no vested interest in working with any particular lodge or camp. Hence we are free to construct your itinerary in a totally objective manner, choosing only those destinations that we believe will best suit your personal aspirations. We understand your dream - we understand that a Zambian safari, for many of our guests, is a once in a lifetime adventure. We therefore go to great lengths to plan the smallest details ensuring the highest quality experience for each and every one of our guests.

My Safari

There is a lot of information on this website about all the lodges, parks, activities and so on that are involved with a safari in Zambia. That is why we have created the "My Safari" tool, which allows you to add your favourites to a wish list when planning your safari and browsing the site. When you are happy with your choices you can then email the list to us for help putting your itinerary together or to friends and family to share your ideas - and the list will be saved for you for when you return to the ZambiaAway website.

Planning Your Safari

Many people nowadays are accustomed to booking the various components of their holiday - flights, accommodation and so on - directly over the internet. However this is probably not a good idea in Africa, where internal flights and local ground transport need to be arranged, in addition to a possibly quite complex itinerary involving a number of accommodation providers. ZambiaAway pledges that, if booking through us, the cost that you will pay is no more than it would have been if you had indeed booked each element directly with the provider concerned - we derive our income solely from the conventional agents' commission that is made available to us.

How much will a Safari in Zambia cost me?

Unusually among major safari tour operators, ZambiaAway offers the widest possible range of safari accommodation and pricing. This means that we can design a wonderful and worthwhile wildlife experience to suit virtually any budget. Top quality all-inclusive safari accommodation starts at around $300 per person per night, ranging to $1000 per person per night for the most exclusive and luxurious lodges. Internal flights do add to the cost, but in general a budget of around $6,000 will get you a good quality 7 or 8 night safari for 2 people sharing, excluding international flights. You can spend less than that and you can certainly spend more! Adding a beach holiday to your safari can help reduce costs because, although more flying is involved, beach hotels are generally cheaper than safari lodges as they do not include all the game-viewing activities.
