Bradt Guides Zambia

Bradt Guides Zambia, highlights Zambia, one of the best destinations in Africa for walking and river safaris, hot springs and waterfalls. This fifth, fully updated edition leads visitors through all the prime attractions – set in their historical and environmental context – from the newly declared Ngonye Falls National Park, through the Sioma Ngwezi National Park to the famous Luangwa Park, host to several unique species and an ideal place for leopard-spotting. It includes advice for the independent traveller: how to bush camp in comfort, survival techniques for canoe encounters with hippos or crocodiles as well as guidance on all-terrain driving. With detailed reviews of lodges, hotels and campsites, plus 51 maps and GPS coordinates, Bradt’s Zambia is the essential travel companion for anyone going to this under-explored safari destination. About the author Chris McIntyre is Managing Director of Expert Africa, a tour operator specialising in southern Africa. He is also author of Bradt’s Botswana and Namibia, and co-author of Zanzibar, Pemba & Mafia.

From Bradt Guides updates
A note on currency
The Zambian kwacha was ‘rebased’ in January 2013, at which time one ‘new’ kwacha was brought in to replace the ‘old’ 1,000 kwacha. From the visitor perspective, this effectively means knocking the last three 000s off all prices to give a current-day equivalent.

Of course, prices in Zambia, as in most places, rise fairly steadily, so those given in the fifth edition of the Bradt guide may not be up to date. Some – such as national park fees – have not changed in the intervening period, but for others, a helpful indication of current prices is to take the ‘old’ kwacha price, delete the last three 000s, then convert it into US dollars at the prevailing rate of exchange – approximately US$1 = K7.67.
