Unsurprisingly, activities in Zambia tend to focus on the country's prolific wildlife, and the varied terrain here means there's great variety when it comes to things to see and do. Zambia is the home of walking safaris and the South Luangwa National Park is where this rewarding activity was pioneered. The park is renowned for leopard sightings as well as elephant, crocodile and hippo. For unparalleled views, take a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, while in Kafue National Park you can explore the sprawling waterways by boat, with the limited number of visitors making it likely that you'll have its natural beauty all to yourself.
