Zambia with Wilderness Safaris

Enormous, remote and wildlife-filled

Zambia is situated mainly on a vast central plateau, and boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers - as well as one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Most of the country has a mild, pleasant climate, while the river valleys are hotter and more humid; the extreme north becomes tropical on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, one of Zambia's ten large lakes. While Lusaka is the country's capital, Livingstone, just ten kilometres from the Falls, is more well known to adventurous travellers.

Things to look forward to in Zambia:

  • Catching sight of the famous tree-climbing lions of Kafue
  • Game viewing from a hot air balloon
  • Discovering the thrill of walking amongst wildlife
  • Having thrilling adrenalin adventures on the Zambezi River
  • Gazing over the spectacular Victoria Falls

Why Zambia?

  • First time to Africa
  • Travelled to Africa
  • Seasoned Traveller
  • With some of the wildest and most remote game areas on the continent, a remarkably low population in a massive country, Zambia has an aura of Africa undiscovered.
  • It was in Zambia that the concept of walking safaris originated as the best way of enjoying the rich flora and fauna of the country's 19 national parks.
  • Zambia has its own subspecies of giraffe and wildebeest in the Luangwa, while enormous herds of black lechwe inhabit the floodplains of the Bangweulu.
