Safaris and Walking Tours

Unlike other safari camps in Zambia, we offer a unique game viewing experience in well maintained open air vehicles. We do not overbook our camps so that you can have a serene and relaxing trip with undivided attention from our staff. We provide day and evening safaris as well as walking tours. We are well equipped to guide you to areas where you can view game in natural habitats. Our experienced and trained game wardens will escort you at every step of the trip to ensure your safety.

Commitment to Conservation

Sable Safaris takes game and land preservation very seriously because without conservation, there would not be a game ranch and there would not be land that is unspoiled with natural habitat. Therefore it is in our best interests to protect our wildlife. As we note below, we have memberships in organizations that promote conservation in Zambia. As noted on our website, we develop projects on land conservation in Rufunsa District and are one of the pioneering locally owned companies dedicated to foster land and environmental conservation. For details on this project, see our webpage at

Our chefs will prepare three delicious meals a day and make sure that all your needs are fully met, including any special dietary requests. We will prepare meals to order as requested. Our motto is to focus on simplicity and provide all amenities at a reasonable cost as we know that you chose Nyakolwe camp to enjoy the game experience at a reasonable cost.
