Explore Zambia with Wilderness Safaris

Wildlife in Zambia

Zambia offers impressive diversity as well as large concentrations and numbers of wildlife, and some of the wildest and most remote game areas in Africa. Kafue National Park’s Busanga Plains are famous for lion prides while plains game such as puku, red lechwe, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, oribi and buffalo can be seen. Cheetah and wild dog are present, and a treat is the resident herd of rare roan antelope.

The Zambezi River is home to hippo, crocodile and elephant, as well as incredible birdlife. Mosi-oa-Tunya hosts species such as buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and white rhino.

Birdlife in Zambia is prolific, with over 750 bird species found here, including many specials; the north of the country is the southernmost extreme of the bizarre-looking African Shoebill's range.
