Zambia is one of Africa’s most up and coming safari destinations and rightly so, as apart from it being regarded as one of Africa’s safest countries, it also boasts some of the most diverse, unique and unspoilt wildlife environments on the continent.
Zambia caters for every travellers’ desires as it’s numbers of national parks are home to a huge array of indigenous wildlife, plenty of waterways including the Kafue river, one of the Zambezi’s largest tributaries, as well as a rich cultural heritage of the friendly Zambian people.
The town of Livingstone on the Zambian side of the mighty Victoria Falls is home to numerous beautiful lodges set alongside the Zambezi river where the noises of hippos grunting and fish eagle calls will be your morning alarm clock. If getting the adrenaline pumping is your thing, this place offers it all where you can either opt for a helicopter or microlight flights known as the ‘Flight of Angles’ and catch a breathtaking perspective of the falls from above, or you can take to the waters below white water raft some of the best grade 5 rapids in the world.
If this all sounds like a bit more than you had bargained for, the upper Zambezi offers some beautiful sunset cruises where you can witness swimming elephants and other wildlife coming for their evening drink on the banks of the river whilst sipping on your own.
Zambia is also home to South Luangwa National Park, which is said to be the home of walking safari’s. The Lower Zambezi National Park is the biggest in the country and Kafue is also extremely well-known for it’s incredible abundance of wildlife.
