Anyone going to be in Zambia late October?

Just wondering if any other Fodorites will be in Zambia late October. We'll be at Luangwa River Lodge 10/22-10/27, Chongwe 10/28-10/30 (you can tell Rocco helped on this itinerary!!) and Stanley 10/28-11/1. 54 days and counting!!

I won't be there in late October, but with Rocco's help and encouragement, I have booked into Luangwa River Lodge 12/31-1/6; and Puku Ridge, 1/7-1/12. Give Barry and Tara my best. I am sure you will let us know what it was like in great detail. As a photographer, I know that I am particularly looking forward to the vivid colors and clear light offered by Zambia's wet season.

I might be! Rocco is infiltrating this board obviously! I'm waiting to hear back on an itinerary for southern Africa. (Hmmm...wonder if he's geting kickbacks. No wonder he can afford three safaris a year... ;-)

Three safaris a year...ha, I wish!

I was last on safari 15 months ago and that was at low season pricing for only 11 nights without even a night to spare in Joburg or Cape Town.

Who knows when I will next be able to get back to Southern Africa, since I will be going to Tanzania and Zanzibar for three weeks in late February - Mid March.

I just haven't seen anybody yet visit South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi to come home disappointed. I think Zambia is a top notch safari destination that is largely overlooked because tour operators earn more commission (far more) from Botswana than Zambia. With Victoria Falls, the Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa, there is enough in Zambia to keep someone's interest for at least two weeks. Of course, there are also parks like Kafue and North Luangwa for those whom really would like to get off the beaten path.

Anyway, five more days for my third visit to Zambia. I really hope to bring home a photo album this time around that will demonstrate why I believe Zambia is such an incredible destination.
