Described by many as “the Real Africa”, Zambia is a country of wide open spaces rich in wildlife with magnificent forests, wild rivers, sweeping plains and impressive waterfalls. Zambia Safaris offers exceptional game viewing, whether you’re on a river cruise in the Lower Zambezi, a walking safari through South Luangwa or a game drive in Kafue – the largest of Zambia’s national parks, and the only place you’ll find cheetah.
A network of daily scheduled charter flights can whisk you straight to remote wilderness areas. Once there, you’ll be treated to an authentic Zambia safari experience with luxurious and intimate camps and lodges, 5-star service, and some of the best guides in Africa.
Walking Safaris and Family Holidays
For a truly unique safari holiday, we’d highly recommend a guided walking safari. Set out on foot for an overnight trail, or a full week – staying in well-equipped mobile safari camps; like the popular Classic Zambia Walking Safari.
Zambia is full of surprises: it’s also a great destination for adventurous families with a range of exciting Zambia family holidays to choose from, and safari villas with their own chefs and guides – giving you more privacy and flexibility during your stay.
Exploring Zambia and its Neighbours
Safaris like a Zambian Adventure for Everyone, combine exciting game drives and walks in the country’s premier parks, with a stay on the Zambezi River – upstream of the thundering Victoria Falls: not only the largest sheet of falling water in the world, but also famed for its wide selection of adrenalin activities.
Another great option is rounding off your Zambian safari holiday by hopping across the border to Malawi, for a couple of relaxing days on Lake Malawi’s peaceful shores, or a bit of snorkelling in glass-like water.
When to Visit Zambia
The best time for game viewing in Zambia is the dry season (May to October), however, the rainy season (November to April) is commonly called the Emerald Season because of the richer colours, and is better for river activities (although some camps close during this time).
