Have stayed at McBrides a few times, always end up staying longer than planned and always have a great time, run differently than most camps it's a true bush camp and the day is decided on what and when it happens. One morning there was 14 of us squeezed into the game vehicle following a lioness through the camp. Chris and Charlotte are both entertaining, knowledgable, great hosts and fantastic to walk with, yes things can get a little haphazard but that is the charm, if after a scheduled, orderly and planned safari then this may not be your place. But if walking with true legends passionate about Africa and its wildlife and nature with a fountain of knowledge is then don't hesitate.
On our last stay we had 2 male lions sleeping by our front door taking it in turns to roar throughout the camp keeping us all awake, but thrilled, that's how close to the real Africa it is. Also had a great walk to there fly camp and then a boat trip back up river.
A classic camp and location that should be on anyone's Zambia trip.
We stayed with our daughter of 5, small children not recommended but we have visited before and have had a lot of experience in remote locations.
