Super-luxe Zambia and Malawi secrets that won't break your bank!

Written on: November 05, 2016   |   I visited in October 2016 With Denver and his Zambian team at Dens Safaris, it was being transported into the NatGeo/Animal Planet channel in real time. From luxe to tough!!

Maximised the experience with all-surface/road transport starting from Lusaka to Livingstone/Victoria Falls with a private 4x4 Mitsubishi Pajero and the super interactive and well informed (on all subjects from history to politics to economics and , needless to say, wildlife/sightseeing). Then, Lower Zambezi..speedboat sunset, next day 20 km canoeing on the river with hippos, crocs, elephants and birds abound including camping overnight on a mid-stream island and seeing a lion pride on the Zim side. Then, driving to Kafue with Denver himself, via Lusaka, PLUS a private chef, Capotwe (who, undoubtedly is deserving of a Michelin point - I know). Then, drama..Busanga Plains - the secret #1 - after a stay at Mayukuyuku (terrific - elephants in the camp + lions all night and excellent night drives from Patrick, co-host of the property). Base camp at Kafwala Rapids for Busanga is another gem. Last - Luangwa (I am not even going into Malawi) - Nsefu and North Luangwa - If it wasn't for Denver, Levy and the Dens Safari team, it would just have been a 'standard circuit'.
Thanks to Dens Safaris, super exclusive and hidden secrets!

This is an honest and complete overview of my encounters during my trip with Dens Safaris in Zambia from Sept. 1-16, 2017, which I hope will provide a meaningful insight into the practices of this company for future clients.

My itinerary was arranged and paid for back in December 2016. Initial e-mail conversations with Denver Mbewe, the owner of the company, wen... read more

Planning a Zambian safari was an experience in itself; but Denver at Dens Safari was ever quick to reply to all of my queries. He was right on time at 6:00 AM to pick us up in Lusaka for a 4-day adventure in the South Luangwa National Park. Since the drive took all day, Denver stayed at our lodge for our entire trip. He even went out with us on the first of our fou... read more
