A couple weeks ago I wrapped up my latest Africa trip… and what a trip it was! My Zambia: Rivers of Life tour was a big undertaking. I first scouted Zambia two years ago on the downswing of COVID. Seeking a destination that was a bit under the radar, I focused on Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa National Parks, and came away really impressed. After that, I just had to convince a big group (we needed eight people to fill some of the lodges and camps) to join me. I believed Zambia offered attractive options to both Africa veterans and first-time visitors to the continent.
Well, it paid off. This was the best Africa tour I’ve ever led from a photographic standpoint. We saw so much, and scored numerous memorable (and often rare) encounters. It really was special. Unfortunately, due to the nature of my schedule, I can only share one part of the resulting photo collection with you for now. So we’re starting with the birds.
As always, you can jump straight to the archive to see the full photo gallery. A short preview is below.

There’s more to come from this trip, but I promise you it was an outstanding experience. I am already planning to return with my next tour group in 2026! Get in touch if you’d like to jump on board early.
