Zambia is a stunning, landlocked country which often flies under the radar of its better known neighbours.  Pristine wilderness, beautiful landscapes, diverse activities, plentiful wildlife and prolific birdlife can all be enjoyed here.

The excellent national parks offer a variety of habitats including riverine floodplains, miombo woodlands, wetlands and open plains.  This variety ensures an equally diverse range of wildlife and activities to enjoy on a Zambian safari. It’s a well known hotspot for leopard, lion, hippo and elephant particularly, with wild dog an increasingly frequent sight. 

Away from traditional safaris there are plenty of opportunities to get out of the vehicle, with Zambia widely credited as the birthplace of the walking safari. Setting out through the bush on foot is a wonderful way to see the smaller fauna and flora often overlooked when in a vehicle.  Morning walks from camp to multi-day mobile safaris are all available here. Boat trips offer a different perspective and the chance to see the shoebill, tsessebe or sitatunga, while gliding through the water in a canoe is a magical way to travel.  

Livingstone is home to the majestic Victoria Falls. ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ as they are known locally, which translates as ‘the smoke than thunders’, is a very eloquent description. Picnics on islands, boat trips and helicopter flights are all on offer.  Thrill seekers will find plenty of options to indulge with white water rafting, bungee jumping and gorge swings to entertain.  

Accommodation options range from luxurious camps with private plunge pools, exclusive use houses for families or friends travelling together, to remote, seasonal, tented bush camps. It’s a superb destination for a properly remote safari experience.

Prime season falls between the drier months of April to October, with wildlife congregating in increasingly larger numbers as the season progresses.  The rainy season, November to March, brings with it migratory birds and the opportunity to explore by boat and on foot.  Zambia combines well with the beaches of Lake Malawi or Botswana.
