A boat safari on the Zambezi river from Sausage Tree Camp
Affectionately known as the 'Real Africa', Zambia is a wide and unspoiled wilderness. Home of the legendary African walking safari, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River and abundant wildlife - Zambia offers an authentic Safari experience.
Zambia's vast national parks are brimming with hundreds of different mammal and bird species and are 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 'mass tourism' and in essence that's the luxury of visiting - the pure seclusion and privacy.
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 of the Falls and peer into the stomach churning 108m abyss below. Yes, you can really do that!
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.
To experience Zambia at its most authentic, Walking Safaris are the best 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.

Family Holiday to Botswana & Zambia
Holiday to Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe
A well organised trip that facilitated a seamless experience. Zimbabwe was overall the best safari experience, with its diversity of Bush Camps, the warm and friendly people and the knowledge and enthusiasm of the guides and staff.
It was a pity that following three years of minimal rain the water levels affected our enjoyment of Mana Pools and the Okavango Delta.
