Zambia Safari

Zambia: Off-the-beaten-track Safari Experiences

Zambia Map

Zambia is wild in the way the wild ought to be done. As the original home of the guided walking safari, this is safari country at its best. Travelling in Zambia will take you into a remote wilderness where animals wander through unfenced camps and where the human footprint is almost non-existent.

Zambia will reward you with some of the most exceptional safari experiences on the planet at its many National Parks. The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is home to giraffes, zebras, impalas, and abundant birdlife. Zambia’s other national parks include massive Kafue, whose woodlands, plains and wetlands sustain lions, elephants, and hippos. Another exciting Zambia safari destination is South Luangwa, where leopards, giraffes, buffalo, and other animals are viewable by walking safari.

Although landlocked, Zambia has more natural water resources than any other destination in Southern Africa. The Kafue, Luangwa and Zambezi rivers flow through Zambia to feed seventeen magnificent waterfalls, defining the country’s geography and providing adrenaline-fuelled thrills or a leisurely playground of activities for all ages. Above all, Zambia is famous for sharing “the smoke that thunders” with neighbouring Zimbabwe. So your Zambia safari will undoubtedly include Victoria Falls.  

Blessed with natural wonders, wildlife, impressive bodies of water and vast open spaces, Zambia offers unforgettable holidays exploring Africa at her most authentic.

When to Go:

The best time for a safari in Zambia is during the dry season, from May to October. This is when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. Similarly, the best time to see Victoria Falls is from June through September.
