Zambia is the wild heart of Africa, with vast stretches of wilderness offering excellent game viewing, specialising in walking safaris.

Many of its lodges are owner-run, making each destination unique and special. A safari here combines well with a beach holiday on Lake Malawi.

Did you know?

  • Although Zambia lies in the tropics, the height of the plateau ensures that the climate is seldom unpleasantly hot, except in the river valleys: The Zambezi and Luangwa become very hot in the months of October and November.
  • There are three seasons: the cool, dry winter season from May to September; the hot, dry season in October and November; and the rainy season, which is even hotter, from December to April.
  • Walking safaris are only in the dry from June-October and the seasonal camps are taken down in November and rebuilt in May for opening in June.
  • South Luangwa pioneered the modern walking safari, and this is what the region is best known for. Walking safaris are a great way to get close to the animals and learn about the area from the expert, local guides.
  • Liuwa Plains National Park is wild and remote in the west of the country. It will come into its own under the excellent management by the conservation charity African Parks.
  • Travel to Kasanka to see the famous arrival of the fruit bats it’s a sight to be seen.
  • You can see the Shoebill stork in the Bangweulu wetlands another park whose management has been taken over by African Parks.
