Holidays in Zambia
A real taste of Africa
Zambia is a less obvious safari destination than the likes of Kenya, Tanzania or South Africa – and it means you can experience Africa in its purest form. Away from the crowds, and with an exceptional range and volume of wildlife, you can immerse yourself in a unique and exciting environment. From walking safaris in the South Luangwa Valley – which allow a far closer encounter with nature – to viewing wildlife from the water or as part of a game drive, there’s a vast array of activities available.
The first walking safaris took place here in South Luangwa, known for having some of the best guides in Southern Africa. This location, set deep in the African outback, provides the backdrop for a different kind of safari – a close encounter with nature that will likely feature big game including lions, leopards, elephants and hippos.
The Lower Zambezi is a haven for wildlife. Elephant, hippo, buffalo, zebra, lion, leopard, and a myriad of antelope species are attracted by the river, which provides an excellent opportunity to view game from the river – by boat or canoe – as well as on land with bushwalks and game drives.
Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya, which translates to mean “the Smoke that Thunders”, is a waterfall on the Zambezi River, at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and a breathtaking sight to behold – perhaps one of Africa’s greatest.
