Antarctic Explorer

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.

Zambia

Zambia

Take an adventure holiday in ZAMBIA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Sharing one of the seven natural wonders of the world and blessed with an abundance of wildlife, water and vast open spaces, Zambia offers a plethora of experiences for visitors. Victoria Falls, straddling the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is referred to by locals as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’. The cascades, fed by the mighty Zambezi River can have up to 546 million cubic meters of water per minute tumbling over the edge at the height of the wet season. Zambia is also home to some wildlife-rich national parks like South Luangwa, which is renowned for large herds of elephant, hippopotamus and numerous prides of lion.

The Weather in Zambia

There are two main seasons, the rainy season(November to April) corresponding to summer, and the dry season (May to October/November), corresponding to winter. The dry season is subdivided into the cool dry season (May to August), and the hot dry season (September to October/November). The modifying influence of altitude gives the country pleasant subtropical weather rather than tropical conditions for most of the year.
