Southern Africa

Zambia

Zambia is where travelers can explore remote and mesmerizing wilderness teeming with an astonishing diversity of wildlife. Go on an adventure deep into the bush where predators and prey wander through unfenced camps where the human footprint doesn’t exist. One day you might be canoeing down a tranquil river, and the next, you might be rafting through the raging rapids near Victoria Falls.

The landlocked country of Zambia’s geography is defined by the three great rivers of Kafue, Luangwa, and the mighty Zambezi that flow through it. Zambia might be smaller than most other African countries, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in biodiversity and abundance of natural water resources.

Back in the 50s, Zambia was the pioneer of walking safaris, setting the trend for the purest and most exciting way of experiencing Africa’s wilderness. If you’re traveling here, expect to be greeted by warm and friendly locals, authenticity, and a safari experience that’s as down to earth as they come.

With more than 33% of the landmass of Zambia designated to national parks, there’s an epic adventure waiting around every corner in this country. Ready to explore it all? Here’s where to go!

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

The local Sotho word for” The Smoke that Thunders” is Mosi-oa-Tunya, and when you hear this name, it refers to the thundering roar and towering mist that emanates from the glorious Victoria Falls.

Located on the northern banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Zambia shares the Falls with Zimbabwe in their Victoria Falls National Park. Aside from being  one of the world’s greatest waterfalls, we reckon it is one of our planet’s greatest attractions, which is why it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

“Victoria Falls is billed as one of the world’s greatest waterfalls,” a friend of ours once wrote, “but, as a matter of fact, it’s one of the world’s greatest anythings.” “The Smoke That Thunders,” isn’t the highest or the widest, but it’s inarguably the world’s grandest and most booming waterfall, a large lake’s worth of water flinging itself 360 feet straight down every minute of every day, right before our delighted eyes.

Our safaris usually give us a couple of days to appreciate the Falls’ subtly shifting moods. We enjoy coffee-sipping views from our room’s veranda of the almost 1,000 feet of mist that rise from the watery cauldron. We cruise on the Zambezi River, watching elephants and giraffes doing their daily work. We helicopter over the Falls on the famed Flight of Angels, contemplating what the most remarkable travel writer of all time, Richard Halliburton, called “a hurricane of bursting water…that seems to fall up, not down.”

But there’s more to see in Mosi-oa-Tynya National Park than just the Falls. Boating excursions on the Zambezi offer an exceptional and unique way of exploring the amazing landscapes. With exuberantly lush riverbanks that set the stage, guests can sip their sundowners as they watch the free-roaming animals stop by for a drink or a refreshing dip in the waters.

Victoria Falls

Southern Africa, Zambia

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles and forms the foundation for an impressive collection of myths and legends. Long before David Livingstone ‘discovered’ the falls in 1855, the Batonga people named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, which translates to ‘the smoke that thunders’.

The epic rumbling and iridescent mist clouds of the falls can be seen up to 50 kilometers away, and they get more awe-inspiring the closer you get to them. The waters and gorge are a playground for adrenaline junkies with activities like abseiling, white-water rafting, bungee jumping, and microlight flights happening here every day. This World Heritage Site captivates its visitors today just as much as it did when it was founded and renamed by Livingstone.

Kafue National Park

Southern Africa, Zambia

As Zambia’s oldest national park, the origins of Kafue date back to 1950. It’s the world’s second-largest wildlife sanctuary and spans 22,400 square kilometers of the breathtaking African wilderness.

Kafue National Park

As Zambia’s oldest national park, the origins of Kafue date back to 1950. It’s the world’s second-largest wildlife sanctuary and spans 22,400 square kilometers of the breathtaking African wilderness.

Stretching as far as the eye can see, the impressive Busanga Plains is one of Zambia’s most significant wetland resources. There’s also the fertile dambos, which lies to the south, fed by the Lunga, Lufupa, and Kafue rivers, making it a prime location for viewing the park’s 500 species of birds. The park’s vast expanses ensure that visitors can relish in an abundance of exciting adventures, including game viewing, bird watching, and fishing excursions.

Kafue’s tropical location makes it an ideal destination for year-round safaris since the temperatures don’t fluctuate too much from one season to the next. After you’ve soaked up the tranquility and marveled at the natural scenery, one of the world-class resorts within the park is the perfect place to finish your day off in style as you savor delectable foods with the African night sky painting the perfect picture above you.

Lower Zambezi National Park

Southern Africa, Zambia

Spanning across 4,092 kilometers of the blissful African wilderness, the Lower Zambezi National Park lies close to Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools Reserve and forms part of a massive expanse of protected wilderness.

This is where you’ll be treated to some of the most breathtaking vistas of the Zambezi River and the lush riverine surrounds.

Enormous herds of elephants are often spotted along the riverbanks, but the waters here also attract leopards, buffalos, and lions. With the park’s impressive collection of habitats, it houses a superb collection of animals.

While many rivers aren’t navigable year-round, the mighty Zambezi is always offering guests various water activities alongside normal walking and driving options. Boating safaris are the best way to explore this area as they take you into areas inaccessible by road, opening up opportunities for sighting wildlife that might not be possible from the seats of a game viewing vehicle.

South Luangwa National Park

Southern Africa, Zambia

South Luangwa has long been known as one of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, and with good reason! The area is home to an abundance of game that frequent the Luangwa River and its collection of oxbow lagoons.

South Luangwa has long been known as one of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, and with good reason! The area is home to an abundance of game that frequent the Luangwa River and its collection of oxbow lagoons.

As the lifeblood of the park’s 9,050 square kilometers span, the Luangwa River is Africa’s most intact river system. The park is best known for its walking safaris and leopard sightings; the latter said to be on par with what you’d expect to experience in South Africa’s Sabi Sands Reserve.

Some luxury resorts have their own hides, perfect for wildlife photographers. You can also opt-in for a unique microlight game viewing experience in the park.

Liuwa Plains National Park

Southern Africa, Zambia

Liuwa Plains National Park has been a game reserve since the 19th century but was only officially recognized as a national park by the country’s government in 1972. Liuwa Plains lies in Zambia’s far western reaches. It is thanks to its remote location that guests can look forward to pristine wildlife experiences amid vast herds of wildebeest, wild dog, and lion populations that inhabit the golden plains of the park.
