Zambia

Overview

Zambia is a country of great integrity, it holds on to the true values of safari – Authenticity, Essence & Natural Wilderness. It may be becoming increasingly well know but it retains each of these factors with a firm grip. A Zambia safari take in the Luangwa Valley, Victoria Falls, Lower Zambezi and Northern Kafue are perhaps the most famous regions but the area’s in-between are often the most rewarding. These are the areas that aren’t often seen by tourists and are the sort we like our clients to explore.

It is a truly remarkable country. It’s rare to travel a country with such incredible wildlife, captivating culture, lack of tourists, and most it importantly, such friendly people. We hope Zambia never changes, it’s a breath of fresh air!

What to see

Lower Zambezi

Set on the banks of the glorious Zambezi River, Lower Zambezi National Park accommodates a huge amount of game, especially Elephants, Hippo and Buffalo!

One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Victoria Falls is one for the bucket list. The combination of water, rainbows & greenery is simply stunning.

Zambezi River

The River’s beauty has attracted tourism from all over the world, providing opportunities for a myriad of water sports and game viewing activities.

Kafue National Park

Kafue is Zambia's largest National Park, so large that the south and north of the park are completely different. Be sure to allow enough time to explore here.

South Luangwa

Home to walking safaris and famous for it throughout the world, South Luangwa is debatably one of Africa's finest National Parks.

North Luangwa

North Luangwa shares many of the same traits as South Luangwa, whilst additionally being remote and unpopulated; perfect for a self drive adventure.
