With nearly 30% of the country reserved for wildlife, Zambia has much to offer for tourists that like something different. Probably the most famous area is its part of the world famous Victoria Falls and the surrounding Park. A sundowner cruise on the Zambezi above the Falls is a wonderful way to end a day of exploring this location.
The South Luangwa National Park very early on promoted the walking safari, giving visitors the chance to see wildlife at a pace set by their group and a chance to experience Africa up close and in perspective. This is still one of the best places to undertake this activity as the lodges/camps involved are small in size and so well located.
The plains of Kafue are spectacular as are some of the lake orientated Parks. The people are friendly and pleased to meet you. What is more, Zambia is not on the “usual” safari list making your experiences here exceptional.
