Home of the world famous Victoria Falls, Zambia is a hot new safari destination with pristine wilderness areas, vast open spaces and plenty of adventure activities to choose from. Zambians are renowned for their warm hospitality and are known to welcome tourists with the biggest of smiles – which is why it’s little surprise that Zambia is considered one of the safest countries in the world to visit.
For the adrenaline junkies, the town of Livingstone is an ideal base from which to explore Victoria Falls and the surrounding national parks. Enjoy action packed days of white water rafting in some of the best rapids in the world, or jump off Victoria Bridge in one of the world’s highest bungee jumps. Walk amongst the treetops of the rainforest in a newly introduced canopy tour before getting a bird’s eye view of the Falls in a helicopter – there really are activities for all levels of thrill seekers in the popular tourist town.
The game-rich South Luangwa, North Luangwa, the Kafue and the Lower Zambezi National Parks are must-sees on your itinerary, each boasting richly diverse concentrations of wildlife. Walking safaris began in Zambia, and this unique experience of walking amongst the animals with highly trained rangers is one you won’t soon forget. There is no way to be closer to the African bush!
Zambia is blessed with one of the largest water resources in Southern Africa with five lakes and mighty rivers – including the famous Zambezi. All this water means not only plentiful wildlife, but also offers a whole range of water-based activities such as sunset cruises, fly-fishing, kayaking, river surfing and houseboat safaris.
Lusaka, Zambia’s capital is well served by a number of international airlines with flights most regularly from Johannesburg. This means that access to Zambia couldn’t be easier. With affordable accommodation ranging from the rustic to the luxurious, come and experience the warm heart of Zambia for yourself.
