Victoria falls and pristine safari regions for the more energetic lesser known but equally rewarding adventures in a beautiful country.

Zambia is a wonderful country, friendly and peaceful, that offers superb wildlife and cultural encounters. It really is Africa’s best kept secret.

The country boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers which are the major focal points of the best safari areas. There is also Victoria Falls which offers its own amazing spectacle as well as adrenalin-packed activities.

A genuine highlight of a safari to Zambia is the very high quality of guiding which is maintained and regulated through a clear structure of guiding examinations and assessment.

It was in Zambia’s South Luangwa that the concept of walking safaris originated as the best way to enjoy the flora and fauna of the national parks. This is the finest area for walking with big game in Africa.

Along with the walking options the national parks of Zambia allow night drives which add an exciting extra dimension.

Zambia is impressive in so many ways and each of it’s different regions offers something unique and memorable:

South Luangwa: The lush Luangwa Valley is one of the finest wildlife areas in Africa. South Luangwa, the largest park in the region, offers superb game viewing with few visitors and a range of high quality camps. The area is famous for pioneering walking safaris and renowned for one of the highest leopard densities in Africa.

Victoria Falls: One of the seven natural “wonders of the world”. This is an area of spectacular scenic beauty from the cascading Victoria Falls themselves to the broad picturesque course of the Zambezi River upstream. Along with the abundant wildlife, there are numerous leisure activities and adrenalin sports.

Lower Zambezi: A stunningly beautiful rift valley through which the mighty Zambezi river flows. This region offers big game viewing alongside an impressive river with a stunning mountain backdrop. A superb mix of high-quality day and night game drives, walking safaris, motor boat and canoeing activity options.

Kafue: One of the largest parks in Africa this is the location for a remote, wild and diverse safari within a pristine wilderness. The Busanga Plains in the far north offer a unique environment within Zambia and attract a concentration of both common and rare antelope alongside a very healthy predator population.

Lusaka: Zambia’s capital city. Not high on Zambia’s list of attractions but its vibrant atmosphere, city market and attractive boulevards do offer some appeal.
