12-day Highlights of Zambia (Budget)

Zambia is by far one of Africa’s ultimate safari destinations. The South Luangwa National Park is some nine thousand square kilometres of pristine wilderness and home to the walking safari. With an abundance of game, spectacular game viewing is guaranteed and sightings of big cats are amongst the best in Africa.   Down in the Lower Zambezi, spend time out on the river boating, canoeing or fishing or enjoy game drives in this beautiful park sandwiched between the rugged and dramatic escarpment and the Zambezi River. This area offers peaceful game viewing in the true African wilderness.
