SAFARIS IN ZAMBIA
Zambia is a safari enthusiast’s dream with over 30% of the country’s land allocated to National Parks. Not only is there an array of some of the world’s biggest and best game parks to choose from for a Zambia tour or safari, such as the vast Kafue National Park or the famous South Luangwa, there are also many safari activities available too. Whether it’s a canoeing safari along the game-rich shores of the Lower Zambezi, or following in the footsteps of the pioneers into the Zambian interior on a mobile walking safari through North Luangwa National Park, you are sure to find something in the continent’s spectacular wildlife and scenery to thrill and amaze you.
Zambia is home to an amazing 779 bird species. Lochinvar National Park alone is home to 428 and Luangwa Valley to 450. All park guides are experienced bird spotters, so don’t forget to pack the binoculars and the zoom lenses.
A canoeing trip down some of the quieter stretches of the Upper Zambezi is among the more relaxing ways to enjoy the Zambian safari experience and literally follow in the footsteps, or paddle strokes, of the legendary David Livingstone himself.
A guided safari is often the easiest and most convenient way to get up close and personal with the Zambia’s incredible wildlife. While your experienced guide shares his knowledge and finds the best viewing opportunities, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
MOBILE WALKING SAFARIS
If the pristine, undisturbed African bush is what you are after, then it doesn’t get more raw and wild than a mobile walking safari. Zambia is one of the few countries in the world to offer this unique and unforgettable experience, backed up by a ground crew so you don’t have to carry everything with you.
If wildlife photography is your thing, then Zambia is the right place for you, offering an abundance of wildlife amidst dynamic, rich colours. Some operators offer specific photographic safaris, and even ‘in the field’ wildlife photography workshops.
