Zambia is renowned for being Africa's adventure capital, but what may surprise you is that Zambia has some of Africa's finest wildlife reserves. Zambia has unspoiled natural beauty, a diverse landscape and an abundance of wildlife which make it the perfect spot for a luxury safari holiday.
A safari to Zambia is most certainly an experience to consider for outdoor enthusiasts, and for those who wish to immerse themselves in wild Zambia. Zambia offers a traditional safari experience, offering a wide range of safaris and experiences in an intimate setting.
Zambia has been Africa's best kept secret and has often been overlooked as a tourist destination which adds to the countries unique charms, the wilderness is pristine and Zambia is able to offer travellers views of the African bush which have not changed for centuries. Zambia has 19 National Parks with the Kafue National Park and the Lower Zambezi National Park being the pick of the bunch.
Victoria Falls is often the draw for many people who visit Zambia as it offers adrenaline junkies a wide variety of high octane adventures, from gorge swinging and bungee jumping, to abseiling and white water rafting along the raging rapids of the Zambezi River. Until around 10 years ago Zimbabwe was the most popular country to visit the Victoria Falls from, now Zambia is the leading destination to view the falls due to its superior accommodation, activities and is less expensive.
Lake Kariba is one of Zambia's hidden gems; it offers spectacular views, stunning sunsets, water sports and exclusive houseboat safaris. The lake is Africa's largest man made dam, it's an impressive 226km long – its sheer size makes you forget that it is a dam and more like an ocean. A houseboat safari is a great way to relax after a high octane adventure on the Zambezi. It offers an incredible alternative to a land based safari and are often included as part of a longer visit to Zambia.
For those with more energy than a relaxing houseboat safari Zambia has a wide range of canoe safaris along the Zambezi River. Upper Zambezi River is particularly tranquil and is a relaxing way for you to enjoy the Zambian wilderness. Lower Zambezi is flanked by National Parks on both sides of the river, making it a truly unique place where you can experience two safari parks for the price of one. Sitting back in your canoe whilst you let the rivers current take you along is a magical feeling. A river safari along the lower Zambezi is an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal to game.
A trip to Zambia could not be complete without a visit to the Livingstone memorial. The memorial itself is just a simple plaque placed upon the very spot from where he drew his last breath. David Livingstone was a Victorian Missionary and one of the greatest European explorers of Africa.
