We booked our holiday with Imagine Africa. We had never booked a holiday via the internet before but the reason we did this was that the company tailored made our holiday in accordance to the number of days, the countries we wanted to visit and the price range. Imagine Africa were so efficient in e-mailing and knowing what type of... More

It is not possible to overstate the magical qualities of the Jackalberry treehouse. On our first night I woke to the sound of crashing and breaking branches and was nervous that some wild animal had found its way into or under the treehouse. We finally plucked up courage to get up and have a look and found an entire herd... More

The family loved the Treehouse......a HUGE adventure to sleep in open bedrooms surrounded by elephant and other wildlife....not a wink of sleep on the... More

Everyone has said it well before, so I'll not repeat except to say it was wonderful. Of note, several in my party were afraid of creepy crawlies and we found that the stay in the tent was much more creepy crawly free than the much more expensive camp that we stayed at following this. We also visited the Kawaza village... More

If you're looking for a first rate safari experience, this is your place. Superb food, friendly and attentive service, and an exceptional location right on the banks of the Luangwa river make for an unforgettable vacation. The safari guides are knowledgeable and know where to look. Our entire three night stay was a pleasure, and we will certainly return.
