Where Next

Easily combined with other regions

Zambia is easily combined with other destinations in the southern Africa region. Zambia’s Livingstone International Airport sits close to Victoria Falls, offering connections with Namibia as well as South Africa, putting wine tours, private Kruger safaris and whale watching onto your tour. Add a taste of Botswana to your Zambia travel itinerary – the fabled Chobe River lies less than 100km away from Victoria Falls – or finish off barefoot-style on one of Lake Malawi’s golden beaches.

Botswana

It’s an action-packed day trip from Zambia’s Victoria Falls to Botswana’s Chobe River, home to Africa’s greatest densities of elephants as well as buffalo, hippo and big cats. If you want to explore Botswana further, head for wildlife gems such as the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve. You can join an overland camping tour or fly from lodge to lodge – ask us about the best connections from Zambia.

Malawi

If you feel like kicking back on a palm-fringed beach after your Zambia safari, then it’s simply a question of a short hop over to Lake Malawi. You’ll enjoy a wide range of water sports – including diving and snorkelling – as well as excellent bird watching and even the chance to explore one of Malawi’s little-visited national parks. Zambia’s top safari operators often include Malawi on their itinerary – ask us for advice.

South Africa

Direct flights connect Victoria Falls with Cape Town making it simple to add the Cape experience – Table Mountain, the Winelands, whale watching, shark-cage diving and penguins – to your Zambia travel plans. And direct flights to Johannesburg mean you can also combine the Kruger/Sabi Sand with Zambia. Victoria Falls, Africa’s most guaranteed Big 5 game viewing, and her best walking safaris – now that’s a safari.

Top Experiences

Things to look forward to in Zambia

1. Visit Smoke that Thunders

Zambia’s view of the Main Falls in flood is spectacular but low water season is the time to visit Devil’s Pool, perched on the edge of the falls themselves.

2. Go on a Game Drive

Zambia’s parks are some of the best in Africa – huge, unspoiled & full of wildlife. Explore them by open-sided 4X4 in the company of an expert guide.

3. Canoe the Zambezi

You can enjoy a canoe trip at Victoria Falls but head for the Lower Zambezi for a super-sized canoeing experience. Mix it up with game drives & boat trips for an unforgettable safari.

4. Cruise the Zambezi River

Whether it’s viewed from a small boat or aboard the triple-decker African Queen, the sunset is equally as good. Honking hippos & water birds provide the soundtrack.

5. Walk the Wilderness

Whether it’s an afternoon nature walk or multi-day walking safari, you’ll never forget being on foot in the South Luangwa. Highly experienced rangers & trackers lead the way.

6. Dive into Devil’s Pool

You’ll never have a view like this again: guides take you by boat to a natural swimming pool … poised on the very edge of Victoria Falls.

7. Look for a Leopard

One of the best places to see this elusive cat, the South Luangwa is also famous for its densities of elephant, hippo, buffalo & lion. Spot-lit night drives give you an extra advantage.

8. Go White Water Rafting

You won’t find a better & more exciting one-day rafting trip in the world – the Zambezi River in low water delivers the adventure of a lifetime.
