You’ll experience some of Southern Africa’s wildest and most remote destinations but you’ll be far from roughing it: a Zambia safari combines excellent big game viewing with luxurious lodges and some of the best guides in Africa. And although the raw beauty of Zambia’s vast reserves has long made them a favourite for safari connoisseurs, they don’t attract the crowds that cluster around sightings in the better-known parks in Africa – in fact the only bustle you’re likely to find is at the country’s most popular attraction: the spectacular Victoria Falls.
Picking a park to visit is not always easy as each offers a unique safari experience: go on guided walking safaris through the South Luangwa, famous for its rich diversity of wildlife; skirt crocodiles and yawning hippos as you paddle along the river on a canoe safari in the beautiful Lower Zambezi; or enjoy game drives and horseback safaris in untamed Kafue National Park – its wide open floodplains are home to large herds of antelope and there are plenty of predators on the prowl. We’d highly recommend combining 2 or 3 different destinations for a complete Zambia safari experience.
As for Zambia’s accommodation, we’ve carefully selected camps and lodges that are small, unique and take great pride in the high levels of guiding offered. Honeymooners can stay in luxurious tented suites opening onto a private deck while families can opt for a safari villa with a personal chef and guide. We’d also highly recommend a couple of nights in one of the remote bush camps in the South Luangwa – they’re rustic but have just the right level of luxury and are as off the beaten track as you can possibly hope to get.
And while Zambia’s reserves are truly remote, the country’s capital Lusaka is thankfully well connected. Round off your safari in Zambia with a beach holiday on the lakeshore in neighbouring Malawi or opt for more big game viewing in Botswana or Zimbabwe. Simply chat so someone who’s been there – our Africa Safari Experts can offer first-hand advice and rock-solid recommendations, and will help you put together the perfect Zambia safari.
Our top places to visit in Zambia:
- Victoria Falls – natural wonder & adventure activities
- South Luangwa National Park – big game & walking safaris
- Kafue National Park – wild & remote, plenty of predators
- Lower Zambezi – river views, fishing & water activities

If it’s a wilderness safari with a difference you’re looking for or simply a chance to explore one of Africa’s most beautiful countries, we can recommend the perfect trip or tailor-make one for you – just ask one of our African Safari Experts for advice and assistance.

It is of course the gigantic, incomparable sand dunes of the Namib Desert that feature most prominently on a Namibia safari itinerary but this Southern African country, lying between the Kalahari and the Atlantic Ocean, has much more up its sleeve.
Huge, sparsely populated Namibia is a country of big skies and dramatic scenery. Destinations such as Damaraland, the shipwreck-strewn Skeleton Coast or the Kaokoveld literally echo with emptiness and atmosphere, yet excellent lodges are tucked away in these remote regions and provide intrepid travellers with havens of serenity and comfort – and there’s a lot more wildlife than you might think.
And if it is wildlife you want, then Namibia won’t disappoint. Excellent game viewing is what you’ll get at Etosha National Park, famous for its animal-packed waterholes and abundant predators while Namibia’s wild and well-watered answer to the Okavango Delta – the Caprivi Strip (newly renamed as the Zambezi Region) – is home to diverse wildlife reserves and incredible bird watching.
A Namibia safari holiday is ideal for wildlife enthusiasts while its decent infrastructure and easy-to-access destinations means self-drive safaris for more independent travelers are a can-do option too. Remote, luxurious and exclusive accommodation makes for an amazing Namibia honeymoon while families with children will be delighted by the country’s safe, well-functioning and friendly nature. Try one of our Namibia family holidays for the family vacation of a lifetime!
