Leopard Cubs "spotted" in the South Luangwa

    By Conrad Cooke | January 31, 2013

    Everybody loves leopards! And the Luangwa Valley in Zambia is one of the best places in Africa to spot these majestic felines. The eye catching spots that they adorn are not merely there for decoration, these cats can blend into the bush like a zebra blends into the ebony and ivory of a grand piano. Even with a healthy population of spotted cats, finding them is incredibly difficult! When you do catch a glimpse of … Read More »

    Prepared or Paranoid?

    By Luxan | January 7, 2013

    We have about 3 weeks to go before our adventure kicks off in Mozambique, but if you tell me to grab my passport and head to the airport today, my response would be “give me 42 minutes to get home to grab my bags”.
