In Zambia, you’ll be looked after on safari by some of the best guides in Africa. They’ll happily share everything they know about the local wildlife and landscape, while safely leading you on game drives, walking safaris and even canoeing safaris along the Zambezi River.
“You'll experience some of Southern Africa's wildest and most remote destinations but you'll be far from roughing it: a Zambia safari combines excellent big game viewing with luxurious lodges and some of the best guides in Africa. And although the raw beauty of Zambia’s vast reserves has long made them a favourite for safari connoisseurs, they don’t attract the crowds that cluster around sightings in the better-known parks in Africa - in fact the only bustle you’re likely to find is at the country’s most popular attraction: the spectacular Victoria Falls.”
Witness the Amaizing Victoria Falls
Picking a park to visit is not always easy as each offers a unique safari experience: go on guided walking safaris through the South Luangwa, famous for its rich diversity of wildlife; skirt crocodiles and yawning hippos as you paddle along the river on a canoe safari in the beautiful Lower Zambezi; or enjoy game drives and horseback safaris in untamed Kafue National Park - its wide open floodplains are home to large herds of antelope and there are plenty of predators on the prowl. We'd highly recommend combining 2 or 3 different destinations for a complete Zambia safari experience.
