Norman Carr - A Legend in Zambia
Norman Carr has become a name synonomous with walking safaris in Zambia. Way back in 1950, he initiated a far-reaching and visionary conservation concept which was to pave the way for modern conservation and tourism. He encouraged Senior Chief Nsefu, who was the Chief of the Kunda people in the Laungwa Valley, to set aside some land for a Game Reserve. Over the years he built camps and started up his famous walking safaris all in an effort to promote tourism into this area.
Now more than 60 years on, Norman Carr Safaris is still passionate about the unique wilderness of the Luangwa Valley. The company is still passionate about making each walking safari an exciting experience with the chance of meeting animals in the wild.
