Aflevering 52, Remote Africa Safaris, a real authentic bush experience

Flying a microlight above the Luangwa River

Flying a microlight above the Luangwa River, you feel like a bird in the African sky.

John Coppinger, founder of Remote Africa has done this over the years for hundreds of hours. Either by himself or with a guest behind him.

John is taking us through his almost 40 years of guiding in the north and south Luangwa. This is still one of Zambia's most important wildlife havens we can experience. Introduced by his father in the 1960's as a young boy he has never lost his passion for this part of raw nature since.

The Coppinger family have built a great portfolio of very authentic safari camps and bush camps over the years. As a guest you will get a true insight of what their philosophy is operating safari camps in such remote area's.

Listen to the story how many Elephants were roaming freely in the sixties and how much Ellies there are now. Luckily the numbers are on the rise again since the last 10 - 20 years. 

The new succes story of the future for North Luangwa is the restoration of the black Rhino population. A very critical endangered species with new hope for the future.

Have fun listening to this safari legend and the stories about the Luangwa Valley.
