Showcasing Livingstone Victoria Falls to the World.

Indaba 2018, one of the biggest meetings of the travel industry in Southern Africa, hosted in Durban South Africa. This year proudly boasting a record 1747 international buyers.

As the South African National Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom in his opening address put it “This is going to be the greatest Indaba of all time”.

For “The Explorer Club Africa” set up at the Zambian Tourism Agency stand, it was an incredible week of non-stop meetings and networking events.

Things to watch

Zambia is certainly in the global spotlight, particularly as demand grows for authentic experiences. Away from the regional commercial tourist traps. Our rich cultural heritage, adventure activities, wildlife reserves, and natural untouched landscape’s, all set the tone for “The Explorer Club Africa’s” experience at Indaba this year.

The Elephant Cafe’

The award-winning Elephant Cafe’ continues to go from strength to strength. The unique pairings of the river transfer with our legacy herd of elephants and the incredible food selection. Proved to be hot topics at the show, particularly with the media.

Nanzhila Plains

Just three hours from Livingstone, this “Hidden Gems Classic” offers isolated, unique wilderness to the traveler “in the know”. Watch this space for upcoming specials including Livingstone and Nanzhila Plains.

Offering four of the big five and seclusion second to none. Nanzhila plains are the perfect new Zambian destination packaged with Livingstone.

Zambezi White Water Rafting Festival 2018

The “Zambezi White Water Festival 2018”, this year from the 25th to the 28th of October, looks to be set to grow. With teams signed up, the onus is now on the entertainment for the weekend.

We met with “Eat Street Africa”, looking to sign up the talented Holly Wasserful at this year’s festival. She would be joining a great line up of African entertainers and musicians, “Black Mamba Man”, “Chicken Bus”, and “Shyman Shaizo”.

The Zambezi White Water Festival 2018 bigger and better than ever.

Multi-day Rafting, rafting.

With Adventure travel tourism estimated to grow by 46% by 2020, it is unsurprising there has been a significant uptick in take-up of our Zambezi River rafting offerings. Our five-star glamping multi-days and our unique take on day trips have seen a massive resurgence in demand for rafting options.

Surfing the Zambezi

As the go-to guys for anything Zambezi River related, we have an exciting event planned June/July with Zig Zag magazine and their sponsors. Watch this space.
