Read an Excerpt

Stalking lion on foot certainly focuses your attention. You think about where you walk; you see every movement; and your ears are aware of every sound.
It's now several years since I wrote the first edition of this guide--the first English guidebook to Zambia--and walking safaris still inspire me. I've been back to Zambia often, but no two walks are alike. One thing always reoccurs: the realization that the more you learn of the bush the more you realize you don't know.
It is the same with the country. The more you delve into it, the more fascinating it becomes. The old tourist board slogan, 'Zambia: the real Africa', still stands. Zambia is still 'real'. It's unsanitized, unpackaged, and still largely unvisited. Zambia offers the best of wild Africa, in a country with very few visitors. It gives an authentic taste of what the whole continent was like: wild, beautiful and slightly unpredictable
