Tours & Safaris - Zambia
Zambia offers an abundance of impressive features for travellers to Africa. Situated in the heart of Southern Africa, Zambia is a nation of contrasts with something for everyone - from true wilderness safaris, thundering waterfalls and vast open plains to adrenaline adventures, mighty lakes and rivers, and a mosaic of cultures and traditions. Zambia’s largest city and capital, Lusaka, is an ideal springboard for safaris in three of the world’s most amazing wildlife reserves - the Lower Zambezi National Park, the North and South Luangwa Valley and Kafue National Park.
East of Lusaka, the Lower Zambezi National Park hugs the Zambezi River and the landscape is shaded by majestic leadwood, ebony, acacia and fig trees. The Zambezi’s many channels, oxbow lagoons and river islands are magnets for a great variety of animal and birdlife. Further north east the lush Luangwa Valley is home to one of Africa’s most beautiful unspoilt wilderness areas, Luangwa National Park. The diversity and abundance of wildlife is phenomenal in the valley concentrated predominantly around the Luangwa River, one of the major tributaries of the Zambezi. The stunning countryside is a mixture of riverine forest, rugged escarpment, open plains and some magnificent baobab trees. Different times of the year offer different experiences, and knowing when the best time to visit Zambia is, is important in your safari planning.
A trip to Zambia is incomplete without spending some time in Livingstone to witness Victoria Falls, one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Even the most seasoned waterfall enthusiast will be utterly gobsmacked by the sight of the mighty Zambezi River tumbling more than 350ft into a deep narrow gorge. The cloud of spray generated by the Victoria Falls can even be seen from space! Livingstone offers plenty of great activities including helicopter and microlight tours of the falls, canoeing, white water rafting, fishing and some great shopping opportunities.
