Few countries in Africa exude the wild and untamed spirit of Zambia. Home of the walking safari, Zambia boasts some of the most talented walking guides on the continent.
We’ve stalked leopards and lions while walking between outlying bushcamps in South Luangwa National Park, one of our favorite national parks in Southern Africa. Lower Zambezi National Park, beside the mighty Zambezi River, offers up a variety of experiences like boating upriver in search of hippo and crocodiles, 4x4 drives through woodland to catch wild dogs hunting puku and sleeping in simple fly camps under the endless African sky.
Starting or ending your adventure at Livingstone (the Zambian side of Victoria Falls) is highly recommended. Sunset cocktails on the river and falling asleep in a thatched chalet to the gurgle of the Zambezi are some of our favorite memories.
There’s also Kafue National Park, the oldest and largest park in Zambia, which is oft-overlooked though it shouldn’t be. The Busanga wetlands attract wildlife and birds from all over the region and offers visitors a chance to see the rare sitatunga.
Your Zambian adventure can be put together in a few different ways so its best to chat with us about what will make the most sense given internal flight schedules and your interests. Zambia combines well with other countries in the region like South Africa or Botswana.
