Multiple destination safaris

The best multiple destination safaris offer a wonderful mix of tourist attractions together with first class wildlife viewing. Mama Tembo offers itineraries that include four of Zambia's national parks – South and North Luangwa, Lower Zambezi, and Kafue. It also provides exclusive activities and sights, such as annual cultural ceremonies, like Kuomboka, Mutomboko and Nc'wala, and an impressive number of waterfalls (not just the Victoria Falls, Zambia's most famous). In addition, Mama Tembo's clients can experience excellent hiking areas in Mutinondo Wilderness and at Batoka Gorge, horse riding on the Shiwa Ng'andu family estate, ancient rock paintings and the white sand beaches and clear waters of Lake Tanganyika.

Personalised safaris

Mama Tembo Tours customises private wildlife, cultural and walking safaris for individuals, couples and small groups, building on inside knowledge of the African countries in which Leslie has resided. Leslie's programs appeal to those seeking highly personal, quality holidays. A personalised safari appeals to those who prefer to spend their precious leisure time on an adventure defined less by adrenalin rush and more by the mystique of remote locations and unusual activities that bring them closer to nature and culture.

Leslie gives informed, honest and independent advice, and provides support right from the early days of the safari planning, through the booking process and travel to Zambia until the day the client returns home.
