Zambia Safari Tours
For many travelers, Zambia is known primarily for the grandeur of the Victoria Falls, yet a safari in Zambia is no mere add on. Threaded with permanent rivers that prove a magnet for animals, Zambia is home to an enticing network of national parks, often less visited than their counterparts in Botswana, Tanzania or Kenya, and some considerably wilder.
While traditional wildlife safaris with great guiding are the mainstay of safari holidays in Zambia, the option of top-class walking safaris is an added bonus. Night drives are a further draw, permitted in all of Zambia’s national parks, and affording the opportunity to see a broader range of animals, from the amusing porcupine to the normally elusive leopard. And creature comforts come courtesy of many small safari lodges, many of them still owner run and highly individual.
No trip to Zambia would be complete without experiencing the majesty of the Victoria Falls, one of the wonders of the world. You’ll find good-value hotels nearby, a handful of lovely lodges on the banks of the Zambezi, and a host of adrenalin activities. The Falls lie in the far south of Zambia, close to the town of Livingstone, but are easily added on to any trip to the country (or indeed to nearby Botswana).
