Africa’s quiet success story, Zambia offers some of the highest concentrations of game species in southern Africa. 

Zambia lacks the crowds of more famous counterparts in neighbouring countries.  A Zambia safaris to unfenced South Luangwa National Park is one of the best safari destinations in the region. Here you can step into grasslands that wrap around the lagoons and mopane woodland in search of elephant, black rhino and lion on a walking safari. Even quieter, North Luangwa National Park has a similar list of around 400 different bird species and 60 iconic mammals, with crocodile and large pods of hippo common in the river from which both parks take their name.

Larger than South Africa’s Kruger National Park at more than 22,000 km2, Kafue National Park is bigger than some nations.  Kafue is Zambia’s largest protected area. Known for its antelope, including Roan, Red lechwe and Puku, their presence, ensures a healthy population of lion and hyena.  Kafue is also one of the best places to see African Wild Dog anywhere in the country.

Sitting opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park encompasses the flood plain of Africa’s fourth longest river.  The Lower Zambezi is home to a healthy population of elephant, lion and leopard.  While in the country’s southwest corner lies one of the continent’s greatest natural wonders, the mighty Victoria Falls, aUNESCO World Heritage site.

The best Zambia safaris combine the Lower Zambezi National Park, South Luangwa National Park, Kafue National Park and Victoria Falls.

Why we love zambia



We have a wide range of Zambian safaris.  The safaris below are intended to give you inspiration of what is possible for your safari holiday. Zambia is a landlocked country endowed with abundant animals, breathtaking natural beauty, massive water bodies, and vast open landscapes. This is the area of the renowned African walking safari and, as one of the few real wildernesses, it is undoubtedly southern Africa's best kept secret. Zambia's game parks, home to the famed Victoria Falls and Livingstone, are comparatively unexplored wonders for those wanting a more off-the-beaten path Zambia safari.

We have a wide range of Zambian safaris that are not featured on our website, and so it best to contact us to discuss your safari options.

Best time to visit Zambia

The best time to visit Zambia is mainly determined by its two most popular activities: walking safaris (with amazing game viewing) and visiting Victoria Falls. Unless you are a regular visitor to Africa, we reccommend avoiding travel between December and April, when it is hot and wet, because many lodges, camps and roads are closed. Shoulder season provides better affordability, but the quality of game viewing may suffer as the bush remains dense. If you go during peak season, you'll be right in the middle of the action for walking safaris and tremendous wildlife, but keep in mind that everything is more expensive.
