Zambias wild rivers

The Zambezi and the Luangwa—are magnets for wildlife and they are the prime destinations for an exclusive new African safari designed by master photographer Frans Lanting and author Chris Eckstrom, in partnership with Shem Compion, co-founder of C4 Photo Safaris, one of Africa’s premium safari companies. Frans and Chris know Zambia well from fieldwork for National Geographic, and together with Shem, an accomplished nature photographer, they will combine their expertise for a safari experience that includes great opportunities to observe hippos up close from hides, and to photograph the classic wildlife of the African bush—from lions, leopards, and elephants, to buffalo, giraffe, and elusive wild dogs.


Safari Highlights
  • At both camps, representatives of local conservation groups will join us to discuss their work. We believe in the importance of contributing to the places we are privileged to visit. Three percent of your safari fee will be donated by us to support the efforts of these NGOs.
  • At Chiawa Camp overlooking the Lower Zambezi, we will do game drives in open 4x4 vehicles as well as river trips in custom-built pontoon boats with canopies to explore the banks, islands, and channels for wildlife.
  • At Kaingo Camp on the Luangwa River, we will have exclusive use of specialised game hides set up for viewing and photographing elephants, hippos, crocodiles, and other wildlife.

Photography Highlights
  • Our safari is limited to 9 guests, with an unparalleled host-to-guest ratio of 3 guests per host.
  • Frans, Chris, and Shem will engage with guests, sharing insights about wildlife, photography, and conservation.
  • Enjoy access to the best wildlife-viewing location in Luangwa Valley.
  • In both Kaingo and Chiawa Camps, each guest will have their own row in one of our 3 private safari vehicles.
