A Zambia safari holiday is the epitome of quality and high standards. With prolific game viewing, authentic parks and reserves and above all else home to some of the best guides and walking safari in the industry, Zambia really is a sensible choice for the experienced safari enthusiast or outdoorsy traveller.

Located in south-central Africa, Zambia has a land mass of 752,618 km². With more of this land protected for conservation than the entire surface area of the United Kingdom it is easy to see why Zambia is a true wilderness destination.

South Luangwa National Park, the country’s flagship reserve, is recognised as one of Africa’s best national parks. With a profusion of activities on offer, world class walking safaris and an opportunity to observe elusive wildlife such as wild dogs and leopard it is a fantastic destination whether you are new to safari or an experienced enthusiast.

If walking in a true wilderness environment is your thing then remote and little visited North Luangwa National Park is waiting for you in the far north-east of the country. Here you will find a very limited road network resulting in highly specialised walking safari as the only way to get around this fabulous wilderness area.

Lower Zambezi National Park, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Africa, offers exceptional wildlife viewing from both land and the waters of the Zambezi.

Zambia also plays host to impressive wildlife migrations. Liuwa Plain National Park, remote and secluded in the far western reaches of the country is home to the second largest wildebeest migration on the continent. Be amongst the herds as huge numbers of herbivores are tracked by hungry clans of up to 50 spotted hyenas. Arguably, an even more impressive spectacle occurs at Kasanka National Park. Hide in wait in the tree canopy as 10 million straw-coloured fruit bats blanket the sky as they leave and return to roost.

Kafue National Park, the largest park in the country and home to an impressive 158 mammal species including roan, sable and sitatunga, as well as the only hot air balloon operation in the country, is not to be missed.

A Zambian safari holiday almost always includes a stay on the Zambezi close to the world’s largest waterfall, Victoria Falls. Here you can participate in exciting adventures such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, helicopter and microlight flights over the falls or sunset cruises along the Zambezi River.

The accommodation options in Zambia vary from traditional bush camps to luxurious camps deep within the bush to safari lodges. Therefore, although it is seen as a destination better suited to more outdoorsy and experienced travellers there are excellent options for those preferring more home comforts. With its excellent wildlife and relatively low visitor numbers, Zambia is a superb option if you are looking for an authentic holiday in a more wild part of Africa.
