Make a (generous) donation and enjoy a unique experience in return as you are hugged by a chimpanzee and given a tour of this ‘playground of the apes’. You’ll also learn a great deal about how these animals live while helping safeguard the future of this amazing organisation.
Ape and at it
In 1983, an injured chimpanzee was brought to the farm of David and Sheila Siddle. The couple lovingly nursed the ape back to health and released it back into the wild when ready. Three decades later, David and Sheila continue to run the world’s largest chimpanzee orphanage Chimfunshi.
Wowed by nature
At 1708 metres wide and 100 metres high, the Victoria Falls are among the most impressive in the world as well as being the widest in Africa. The best time to see this spectacular sight is at dawn when the first rays of sun caress the misty water and create countless rainbows in the sky.
As well as offering an excellent photo opportunity, the waterfalls are the setting for a variety of extreme sports such as hang gliding, bungee jumping and wild water rafting.

Kafue National Park
Prettier than National Geographic
Kafue National Park is one of Zambia’s must-see sights. More mesmerising than anything you’ve seen on National Geographic, this is one of the largest wildlife reserves in the world. Within its 22,000 square kilometres you will find the ‘Big Five’ as well as antelopes, zebras and a wide variety of birds.
As there are very few resorts in the area, the reserve is also relatively tourist-free. Exploring this wilderness is a sure way to get back in touch with nature.
