Victoria Falls and walking safaris
Zambia's premier attraction is undoubtedly Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. You can stay in either country but most travellers head to Zambia these days. One of the world's seven natural wonders, the Falls are simply spectacular and when in full flood are the largest falling curtain of water in the world. And you can enjoy an array of activities in the 'Adrenalin Capital' of Africa.
South Luangwa National Park is the country's premier game reserve. Covering 9050 square kilometre of pristine wilderness, it contains an incredible density and diversity of wildlife, including predators and prey alike, with 60 species of animals and 400 species of birds. It also offers amazing walking safaris where you can get up close with Africa's wild animals and camp out under the stars after a day in the bush.
Game viewing is at its best from June onwards, during the dry season. September and October offer the optimal wilderness experience as animals congregate around waterholes, rivers and lakes. Having said that, game viewing is still pretty good all-year round and it often depends on what exactly you want to see.
Kafue National Park is the country's biggest reserve, and one of the largest in the world. It is a fertile eco-system teeming with antelope, hippos and predators congregating along the Busanga floodplains. And you can spot game on a sunset cruise in the Lower Zambezi National Park or paddle yourself down the river on a canoeing safari.
Most visitors to Zambia will either arrive in Lusaka or Livingstone. Being the capital, Lusaka is served by a number of international airlines, with many travellers flying here directly from Johannesburg. Many will spend a night in Lusaka at the beginning or end of their trip, a chaotic, crowded but charming African city.
