Welcome to Zambia — touted as Africa’s most unspoilt safari destination. Apart from its reputation as one of the safest countries on the continent, Zambia’s boasts some of the most pristine landscapes in Africa. With 19 national parks and 17 waterfalls dotted across the country, it’s no wonder Zambia is regarded as an ideal safari destination.
One of Zambia’s biggest draw cards is Victoria Falls, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site the country shares with its neighbour, Zimbabwe. While 75% of the Falls may be next-door, Zambia lays claim to Devil’s Pool, a natural “infinity pool” perched on the edge of Victoria Falls which is bound to thrill even the most hardened adrenaline junkie (and make for magnificent photo ops).
Zambia’s most popular reserve is South Luangwa National Park. Lauded as the ‘birthplace of the walking safari’, South Luangwa is one of the most pristine reserves on the continent. Kafue National Park (Zambia’s largest reserve) and the Lower Zambezi National Park offer equally astounding experiences for intrepid safari-goers.
The main gateway into this area is Livingstone, a charming little town at odds with the plethora of adrenaline-pumping activities available including bungee jumping and white water rafting to name a few. The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site found on the Zambian side of the Falls, home to a variety of wildlife including antelope, white rhino, hippo and crocodile plus an amazing variety of bird species.
Luangwa National Park
The South Luangwa National Park comprises over 9 000 square kilometres of untamed wilderness in the western corner of Zambia, at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley. Its remote location and a small number of visitors means it provides a haven for wildlife and game viewing, far more exclusive than some of southern Africa's more visited reserves.
There is a high density of wildlife with over 60 different animal species, 400 types of bird, and, with the exception of rhino, the Big 5 is present. What makes South Luangwa unique is its walking trails and safaris. It's a safe and spectacular way to sample the sights and sounds of the wilderness. Choose from a one-day trail to a week-long trek, sleeping under the stars at mobile camps each night - it really is the African experience of a lifetime
Kafue National Park
Kafue is Zambia’s oldest park and by far the largest. Established in 1924, it is the third largest park in Africa and covers an area equivalent to Wales and twice that of the Yellowstone National Park. It spills into three of Zambia’s provinces and within its borders hosts a fantastic variety of wildlife and diverse array of eco-systems on an undulating plateau veined by rivers.
A dominant feature in the north of the park is the Busanga Plains - a vast floodplain fed by the Lufupa River system. These support large herds of herbivores and their predators. The birding is exceptional, especially on the rivers and the dambos, with over 400 species, notably goliath herons, fish eagles, wattled crane, purple crested lourie and Pel's fishing owl. Fishing is also excellent and most lodges have tackle and rods to catch bream, barbel and fresh water pike.
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park
While Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park may be one of the smallest of its kind, it packs a punch unlike any other. What’s its secret? The park is home 25% of Victoria Falls, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and the thrilling seasonal Devil’s Pool. Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park gives visitors a view of the dramatic Eastern Cataract which runs down the length of mighty Victoria Falls.
But the Victoria Falls experience doesn’t stop there! Cross the footbridge that sways through a cloud of spray towards the Knife Edge, a slippery walkway that runs right along the crags, or make your way down the slopes to the banks of the Zambezi where the Boiling Pot (a massive whirlpool) roars away. Several species of antelope, as well as buffalo, zebra, giraffe, and warthog call the park home while elephants can often be spotted crossing the Zambezi on the Zimbabwean side of the border. Plus: bird-watchers will be delighted to hear the park is home to 35 species of raptors such as Taita falcon, black eagle, peregrine falcon and augur buzzard.
