Zambia

Thrills and spills abound with something for everyone

Zambia offers one of the most diverse safari experiences in southern Africa. It is home to no fewer than 19 National Parks and the “smoke that thunders”, Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Become one with nature as you enjoy an authentic walking safari in the famed South Luangwa Valley, undoubtedly one of the best parks in Africa for leopard and lion sightings; witness Zambia’s longest river, the Luangwa, from a microlight as it snakes its way from north to south; picnic amongst the Yellow chattering baboons in an ancient Ebony forest as it casts magical dappled rays through its canopy.

Enjoy a romantic dinner for two on the banks overlooking the Zambezi River, as your meal arrives by canoe to the grunting applause of hippos; watch the sunset over the mighty Falls or feel the exhilaration of a canoe safari whilst you photograph its wildlife from below eye level.

Zambia is full of thrills and spills – bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge or feel the power of the mighty Zambezi as you white-water raft along its path. Visit Livingstone’s Island by boat and swim in the Devils Pool on the edge of the Falls!

For any enthusiastic nature lover, Zambia offers a kaleidoscope of enchanting experiences, with something for everyone.
