Men! Zambia wants you


(Barbara Wilcox) Wild Rainbow African Safaris, which has been taking gay men and lesbians to Africa for five years, has just announced its first trip for men -- a safari and walking tour of Zambia, Aug. 18-29, 2009.   

From Lusaka, the capital, travelers will stay in three-to-five-star camps and tented lodges along the Zambezi River and experience game drives and canoe excursions as well as morning game walks in the bush to see the wildlife up close and personal. "I just got back from this year's trip and on one of the walks we saw four of the Big Five in one morning," says owner/guide Jody Cole.

The Bay Area-based company also offers mixed trips to South Africa, Madagascar and Kenya/Tanzania. "We are an LGBT safari company," Cole proudly notes. "We don't do anything else."
