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.
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.
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.
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.
