Zambia is the sashimi of African wildlife safaris. Raw and exquisite, the overgrown wilderness of a Zambia holiday is a taste that sets a standard not easily satisfied by the potted safari holidays of its northerly neighbours. Picking a park to visit is not always easy as each offers a unique safari experience: go on guided walking safaris through the South Luangwa, famous for its rich diversity of wildlife; skirt crocodiles and yawning hippos as you paddle along the river on a canoe safari in the beautiful Lower Zambezi; or enjoy game drives and horseback safaris in untamed Kafue National Park – its wide open floodplains are home to large herds of antelope and there are plenty of predators on the prowl. We’d highly recommend combining 2 or 3 different destinations for a complete Zambia safari experience. As for Zambia’s accommodation, we’ve carefully selected camps and lodges that are small, unique and take great pride in the high levels of guiding offered. Honeymooners can stay in luxurious tented suites opening onto a private deck while families can opt for a safari villa with a personal chef and guide. We’d also highly recommend a couple of nights in one of the remote bush camps in the South Luangwa – they’re rustic but have just the right level of luxury and are as off the beaten track as you can possibly hope to get. And while Zambia’s reserves are truly remote, the country’s capital Lusaka is thankfully well connected. Round off your safari in Zambia with a beach holiday on the lakeshore in neighbouring Malawi or opt for more big game viewing in Kenya or Tanzania.
