Zambia safari

Browse tried & tested Zambian safaris

The classic Zambia safari revolves around its three heavyweight destinations: Victoria Falls and the South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi national parks. You’ll fly between destinations, usually via the capital Lusaka, with smooth-running logistics.

Zambia’s Victoria Falls offers the grand visual spectacle but it’s the country’s two best-known parks that deliver the big game.  The South Luangwa is home to the best walking safaris in Africa as well as some of the healthiest concentrations of Africa’s big animals – lions, hippo, giraffe, buffalo and elephant. The predator-rich Lower Zambezi gives its visitors a chance to see the aquatic side of Africa’s wildlife – crocodiles and hippos – while on boat and canoe excursions, activities balanced by 4X4 drives and walks.

It’s also easy to combine Zambia with Botswana; the Chobe National Park is just a 2-hour drive from Victoria Falls. And if you don’t want to miss the attractions of South Africa like Cape Town and the Kruger and Sabi Sands, then it’s a straightforward connection via Johannesburg.

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.
