Book a safari holiday to Zambia and experience its most famous attractions: South Luangwa National Park, one of the leading game parks on the continent, as well as the stunning Victoria Falls. Zambia has also traditionally been the home of the walking safari.
The Bangweulu Wetlands supports an incredible diversity of water birds. The shoebill stork is a particular draw and there are also wattled crane, sacred ibis, spur winged goose and swamp flycatcher.
A stay at Kawaza Village is a fascinating experience as there is nothing artificial or set up for tourists. Because of its proximity to the South Luangwa, you can easily combine it with a safari.
Livingstone & Victoria Falls
Seeing Victoria Falls has to be one of life's most memorable experiences. Nearby is Livingstone town, where you can stay or arrange various activities such as boat/kayak trips or helicopter flights.
Lusaka is not one of Africa's most attractive cities but compared with others it has a relaxed air. There is an interesting market and the Moore Pottery factory is worth a visit.
North Luangwa National Park
With virtually no roads, the North Luangwa is perfect walking country. Game gravitates towards the river, particularly in the dry season, when it’s common to see buffalo, lion and hyena in healthy numbers.
Shiwa N’gandu ("Lake of the Royal Crocodiles") was made famous by Stewart Gore-Browne, an English gentleman. Here, he built an English stately home, which is still impressive even by today's standards.
South Luangwa National Park
South Luangwa National Park is Zambia's most famous safari park. Most of the game viewing, of which there is plenty, is centred around the Luangwa River. Walking safaris are a speciality in the park.
The Kafue National Park
Kafue National Park is huge (22,000 km2) and so it's a place we recommend staying a few days. Here you can enjoy walking safaris, canoe trips, game drives and night drives.
The Lower Zambezi National Park
With its floodplains, grasslands and tall forests the Lower Zambezi Valley supports fantastic game densities. Activities in the park include walking safaris, game drives, boating and fishing.
