  • WHERE TO GO IN ZAMBIA

    Zambia map
    Victoria Falls & Livingstone
    Situated on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, these spectacular waterfalls are known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’. Enjoy wonderful views of the falls and relax on a sunset cruise down the Zambezi River. Livingstone, located six miles from the falls, is a busy town with lively markets and many colonial buildings.
    Lower Zambezi National Park
    This large, beautiful and relatively undeveloped stretch of wilderness offers spectacular wildlife viewing and a wide range of safari activities. Look out for big game and predators such as lions, leopards and spotted hyena on game drives by day and night, get close to nature on a walking safari, go fishing or journey down the waterways of the Zambezi River by canoe.
    South Luangwa National Park
    Arguably Zambia’s finest game viewing destination, this secluded and picturesque area boasts one of the highest concentration of animals in Africa. A large crocodile and hippo population can be found along the meandering Luangwa River while leopard, lion and wild dogs roam the land. The park is also the original home of the walking safari and offers a number of quality safari camps.
    Kafue National Park
    The vast Kafue National Park has an unmatched diversity of species thanks to its sheer size and variety of habitats, but a fraction of the visitors of other parks. Look out for pods of hippos, plentiful birdlife and some of the largest crocodiles in southern Africa on the Kafue River and watch herds of antelope and zebra graze the seasonal floodplains, stalked by cheetah and lions.
