The Strategy: Visit owner-run camps

The Place: Zambia

The Deal: Long before Zambia became a mainstream destination, John and Carol Coppinger were operating safaris from their home in the remote Luangwa Valley in the country's northeast. Famous for their walking safaris, the couple runs a typical seven-night Luangwa safari, including three nights at Tafika (the 12-person riverbank lodge where John and Carol live), followed by two nights each at Crocodile Tree and Chikoko, which are rustic three-room bush camps accessed by foot. At around $3,000 for seven days (including food, drink, and a microlight flight over the river), it comes in $300 cheaper per day than a corporate safari camp.
