A boat safari on the Zambezi river from Sausage Tree Camp
Affectionately known as the 'Real Africa', Zambia is a wide and unspoilt wilderness home to the legendary African walking safari, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River and abundant wildlife.
Huge national parks are brimming with hundreds of different species of mammal and birdlife, spread across diverse landscapes of winding waterways, sweeping valleys and oxbow lagoons.
Remote and intimate, the safari camps and lodges in this part of the world don't know the meaning of the words 'mass tourism', and in essence that's the luxury of visiting - the pure seclusion and privacy is as rewarding as any plush hotel.
Zambia's main claim to fame is the famous Victoria Falls. Fly over it, swim in it and, if you're brave enough, lie on the very edge (yes you can really do that) and peer into the stomach churning 108m abyss below.
To further explore one of Africa's greatest rivers, the Zambezi, head to the Lower Zambezi National Park. Canoe or take a boat safari along the river channels and keep an eye out for prowling leopards, swimming elephants and hippos lazily lounging in the water. With some of the most spectacular fresh water sport fishing in the world, expect plentiful Tigerfish and Bream amongst others.
But to experience Zambia in all its glory, walking safaris are the only way to go and the South Luangwa National Park is the best place for it. Step into the shoes of Stanley and Livingstone as you explore Africa on foot and get closer to nature than ever before - you'll be in the thick of the action, metres away from elephant and lion and the largest concentration of hippos in the world.
Walking safaris were pioneered by Norman Carr back in the 1960's and after you've tried it once it'll fast become the only way to view wildlife. Take it from us, it's addictive.
Always dreamed of a balloon safari in Africa? Soar over the Kafue National Park, Zambia's largest and unexplored national park with vast tracts of virgin bush still untouched.
Zambia is one of our favourite 'off the beaten track' safari honeymoon destinations, offering a truly private and memorable experience and it's also a great option for a family safari too; holidays to Zambia will almost certainly provide an authentic experience of Africa.
