Zambia Safaris & Holidays

The breath-taking Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River and the South Luangwa National Park are just a few of best places to visit during a holiday in Zambia.

Trek the riverbanks of the Zambezi River, paddle through the shallow waters home to hippos and elephants or even go canoeing through the flowing waters. Then take a walking safari through the Zambezi National Park to spot buffalos, hippos, rhinos, elephants and even crocodiles in their natural habitats.

South Luangwa National Park offers visitors the chance to explore a vast range of landscapes from open plains to dense forests and marshes. The best way to explore this national park is on foot, trekking into the scenery, densely populated with wildlife including snakes, leopards, giraffes and hippos.

After exploring the wildlife on offer in Zambia, prepare to be amazed by the most famous landmark of all, the Victoria Falls. Stay in Livingstone, the tourism centre of the Zambian side of the Falls or pop over to the other side in Zimbabwe. The plummeting water from the Zambezi River falls over 100m and can be heard up to 40 km away. Your trip to Zambia wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the largest waterfall in the world.

I adore Africa and have lived and worked in South Africa as well as travelling across the wider region. Spotting a leopard during a night safari at Namibia Private Game Reserve is definitely an experience I'll remember forever.
