With some of Africa’s finest walking safaris and some of the best guides and small camps on the continent, Zambia is well-regarded as a destination for safari connoisseurs.  The Luangwa Valley, Lower Zambezi and Kafue are spectacular parks, with a wild, raw atmosphere and excellent game. The stunning Victoria Falls adds to Zambia's impressive list of attractions. With the full range of safari activities on offer, Zambia offers arguably the best value for a complete safari holiday experience, and needless to say, we absolutely love it.

Is Zambia only for safari enthusiasts?

Zambia’s parks have time and time again exceeded our expectations. The very essence of African safari is captured here; entire days can be spent without seeing a soul. Ultimately this is what makes the country so special; the seclusion Zambia offers and the untouched raw beauty of its parks. It is this that attracts safari purists.However, over the last few years Zambia has welcomed first time travellers, and not just safari buffs. The infrastructure and lodge quality, for so long lacking, will now compete with any of Africa's big name destinations and recent flights from the capital to Tanzania's coast mean that safari and beach is finally accessible. The game viewing here is prolific, with huge herds of elephant, buffalo and great large lion prides. Zambia's Luangwa valley is also well regarded as the best place in Africa for leopard, tied with some of the most advanced guiding in the continent. In summary, this is definitely not just a location reserved for safari connoisseurs!

Zambia's value and the activities available in the safari parks

Value and the variety of activities on offer are also reasons to travel here. Game drives at day and night are possible in all parks, and boating, fishing, canoeing and walking safaris are possible in the majority of the country's National Parks. Couple this with the fact that the very best lodges in Zambia are noticeably less expensive than similar lodges in neighbouring countries, so Zambia can stake its claim as the most attractive safari country!
