Our regions

  • South Luangwa
  • Lower Zambezi

Just a one hour flight from Lusaka, the South Luangwa is known for its big cat sightings and often referred to as the Valley of the Leopard. It is in the South Luangwa that the legendary Norman Carr pioneered the walking safari and conservation-based tourism in Africa. Zambia's outstanding reputation of guiding is ever prevalent in our team with some of our guides having trained with Norman himself.  Our guides offer guests a raw, authentic safari experience and don't let the finer details in these vast spaces pass you by.

Nestled between the imposing mountain escarpment to the north and the mighty Zambezi River to the south, the Lower Zambezi Valley has a variety of activities that few, if any, other destinations can offer. It has been described by guests as their "happy place" because of its beautiful scenery, peaceful riverside woodlands and abundant wildlife. The Lower Zambezi is just a short 30 minute flight from Lusaka and offers guests the thrill of tiger-fishing to peaceful wildlife sightings on the banks of the river while canoeing or boating. Our guides strive to make each guest feel like they are part of the landscape and not a mere spectator.

Stop. Listen.
Look closer.

Time + Tide has pioneered to make the most remote destinations accessible across Africa. Our camps at Time + Tide Safaris are interconnected through the rivers, starting in South Luangwa’s tributaries and flowing into the Luangwa River as it bends and heads down to the Chongwe River. The journey continues as the rivers join the mighty Zambezi and plunge into the Indian Ocean, carrying our story across to Madagascar, with Nosy Komba off the northwest coast across to our exclusive private island off the northeast coast – Miavana by Time + Tide. We are guides and guardians to some of the most beautiful places on Earth, with a family of luxury properties in Zambia and Madagascar.
