Zambia

overview

One of the focal points of activity on a Zambia safari is Victoria Falls. One of the seven wonders of the natural world, the spectacle of the Zambezi River throwing its entire width over a 100m chasm in a thundering, mist-shrouded roar can produce sensations of epiphanic proportions.

There is also a never-ending list of things to do in and around Vic Falls including elephant-back safaris, scenic flights, game viewing, river cruises and a host of world-renowned adventure activities.

North of Victoria Falls is the seasonal Kafue National Park, which has found a new lease of protected life and is enjoying itself tremendously. Kafue is Zambia's largest and most diverse game reserve with grassland, woodland and wetland habitats supporting a range of wildlife from cheetah to sitatunga, lion to lechwe and Lichtenstein's Hartebeest to the endemic Defassa waterbuck. Safari territory at its best.

In the far east of Zambia and part of the Great Rift Valley, the Luangwa River carves its way through Zambia's most revered game reserve: the South Luangwa National Park. Beautiful, wild and captivating, the South Luangwa is the birthplace of the famous Zambia walking safaris and to this day ranks as one of the best wildlife destinations in Africa. Open all year round the South Luangwa offers exceptional birding and wildlife safaris on foot, on water and in open vehicles day and night.

Completing the Zambian wildlife safari circuit is the sensational Lower Zambezi National Park, its namesake marking the southern border of the wildlife reserve for 120km. Opposite Mana Pools, the Lower Zambezi features distinct habitats, exciting river safaris and the full spectrum of wildlife along one of Africa's great rivers.

Favourite Places to Visit

South Luangwa National Park

While most of Zambia's parks are forced into hibernation over the rainy season, from November to March, the South Luangwa National Park shines as an exceptional green destination. Walking safaris are the order of the day. An 'off the beaten path' safari experience.

Lower Zambezi National Park

Another behemoth in the Africa safari opus, Zambia's Lower Zambezi is fast becoming a major game park in the region with excellent wildlife safaris. An absolute draw card for big game in southeastern Zambia. A national park since 1983.

Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park has an extraordinary diversity of habitats including dense forests along the perennial rivers, undulating miombo and mopane woodlands, grassy savannah plains and the 750sq km Busanga floodplains which attract various plains game and flocks of birds during its seasonal recession.

Victoria Falls (Zam)

One of Zambia's main highlights, alongside all its incredible wildlife destinations, Victoria Falls about midway on the Zambezi River course is spectacular. The largest sheet of falling water in the world with a mean flow of 935 cubic metres per second. Crazy.

Lusaka

A metropolis and one of the fastest growing cities in Southern Africa, Lusaka is the capital of Zambia. With a central location and a humid climate for most of the year, this city is abuzz with locals and tourists alike.
