True adventure


Our small team has been fortunate to have lived all over the world, but we currently reside in Lusaka, Zambia...and have no plans of leaving! A few years ago, after our own unbelievable self-drive  through South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia, we dreamt of building a small business whereby others could experience the beauty of Africa as well - through their own eyes, ears and hearts. That's where The Wild Life's story begins...and hopefully where your adventure starts!






Maybe you've always wanted to visit Africa. Or, maybe you've visited many times and - like us - simply have Africa in your blood. Whatever your motivation, southern Africa is a beautiful region full of unbelievable experiences and stunning, diverse people. We believe that everyone should have the  chance to experience it for themselves, and there is no better way than by embarking on your own personal self-drive adventure. Explore with us!
