Zambia Safaris and Tours

The jewel in Zambia’s crown is without doubt the scenic wonder of the Victoria Falls.

But the country also offers fabulous game viewing without the crowds, in truly wild, game-rich national parks where the walking safari was born.

The beautiful South Luangwa National Park and the more remote North Luangwa National Park have a number of comfortable lodges and rustic safari camps clustered along the languid, hippo-filled Luangwa River. Walking safaris with an armed ranger are a specialty of the area. The Lower Zambezi National Park bordering the vast and powerful Zambezi River, is another mecca for wildlife. Intimate and stylish camps here offer guests a range of guided activities including game drives, walking safaris, river cruises, fishing and canoeing.

Game Viewing: Gameviewing is best during the dry season from Jun-Oct when the animals congregate at remaining waterholes.

Climate: There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C), hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

Combine With: Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana, Malawi or Zimbabwe – which all offer amazing scenery and wildlife. Or combine with South Africa and explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

Getting There: There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Jo’burg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls. It is also possible to fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and then transfer by road to Zambia.
