Amazing and Fantastic Trip to Zambia

Views: 509 Visited: Jul 2014 Reviewed: Mar 30, 2015

My two-week trip to Zambia was thrilling and fantastic. Almost immediately upon our arrival I saw an elephant wandering through the grounds of our lodge. I was so amazed to realize that we were located right in the middle of the wild animals’ habitat!

There were so many exciting things: the passion of the dedicated wildlife guides; a pride of lionesses stalking some cape buffalo and giving chase right in front of our jeep; stopping to watc... read more

A journey of self discovery

Views: 639 Visited: Jul 2013 Reviewed: Jan 18, 2014

Safari is a Swahili word which means journey. For me this safari turned out to be a journey of self discovery as well as a study of the native wild life. I also gained an understanding of the day by day struggle in a rapidly expanding African country to develop an ecologically balanced understanding of the relationship between man, the native birds, animals, and aquatic life and the earth which we all must share.

A Journey Like no Other!

Views: 404 Visited: Aug 2012 Reviewed: Jan 14, 2014

This was the journey of a lifetime! South Luangwa Park is teeming with incredible animals — so abundant, varied, natural and free, beautiful, graceful, powerful, funny, accessible and exciting, not to mention photogenic! Kafue is remote, wild, scenic and exciting. We missed nothing by passing up Tanzania except the crowds. And we gained a day at Victoria Falls, worthy of anyone’s bucket list.

What sets this safari apart, though, is the huma... read more

A life transforming experience

I just finished rereading my journal from my Open Heart Safari of almost a year and a half ago, and it still brings goose bumps every time I read it. I had never considered doing a safari before I heard about the Open Heart Safari. But Tom’s passion in describing the trip, the prospect of stunning wildlife with intentional personal and spiritual connection, and a desire to do something special for myself motivated me to sign up. This was a ve... read more

Extraordinary Experience

Views: 310 Visited: Aug 2012 Reviewed: Jan 08, 2014

Wow! I can’t imagine a better way to experience the “real Africa” than with the Open Heart group. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and definitely exceeded expectations.
I went on the trip with my 72-year-old father, and we both had such an incredible time and it was a wonderful experience to share together. One of my highlights was seeing a wild leopard just a few feet from our jeep – it was so magnificent & moving, it almost brought me... read more

It's like 3 great trips in 1

Views: 310 Visited: Jul 2013 Reviewed: Jan 06, 2014

I had been looking for a safari experience for several years and when I heard of Open Heart Safari, I knew it was the one because it provided a multi-layered experience. The leaders know Zambia and they plan the safari itinerary to include plenty of game drives with expert guides who know the animals and their habitats. But also included were several opportunities to interact with locals and learn about their socio-economic challenges. But ... read more
