Boasting some of Africa’s most pristine natural attractions and fertile national parks, Zambia presents a lesser explored base for exciting safari holidays. The raw and rugged side to Africa, Zambia is a true gem among the landscape. Playing host to such natural wonders as Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba and the Lower Zambezi National Park, you won’t be short of sightseeing opportunities here.
This is a vast country, and as such the distances between some of the major towns and sights are large. However, this is part of the challenge and charm, and means that the landscape in between remains relatively unspoiled – a haven for anyone who wants to experience a true taste of this amazing continent.
Avid wildlife seekers will not be disappointed – the birdlife here is truly outstanding. And thriving in and by the Zambezi River is a host of reptiles and magnificent creatures that are well worth seeing, from spectacular tigerfish to the rarer vundu. Amidst the landscape you’ll find a host of UNESCO World Heritage Sites dotted throughout the land, as well as many festivals that highlight Zambia’s fascinating culture and traditions. Bordered by Botswana, Tanzania and Mozambique, this is an ideal stopover for multi-centre holidays – why not see more of Africa’s many wonders while you’re here?
Hosting over 55 different species of animals and sprawling across three provinces, Kafue National Park certainly makes an impression. It’s one of the largest parks, not just Africa but also the world, and creates a diverse landscape where you’ll find everything from flood plains to arid deserts. If you’re seeking wildlife sightings on your journey to Africa, this is the place to be – hippos feed by an abundance of birdlife, crocodiles lurk by the riverbanks, and lions roam the plains. It’s a safari haven.
Still unspoiled and underdeveloped, the Lower Zambezi National Park preserves its natural state of diverse wilderness. Clinging to the cusp of the river which flows through south eastern Zambia is dense foliage and fig trees which lead on to forests and rambling acacia trees. This really is prime wildlife territory – perfect for memorable game drives and safari excursions.
Unofficially branded as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the South Luangwa National Park is a haven for exotic species and beautiful birdlife. The pristine landscape of luscious vegetation and flora serves as a fitting backdrop to the fauna that thrives here, as well as creating some breath-taking vistas in the process. Game drives here are second to none, offering up some memorable safari experiences that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
