Walking Safaris & Wondrous Waterfalls
Zambia is a little more under-the-radar in comparison to the big African safari destinations such as Kenya and Tanzania. However, the country’s game-rich national parks offer unique wildlife watching experiences, such as walking safaris, night game drives, open-top game drives and even canoe safaris.
Aside from the safari attractions, there is also the legendary Victoria Falls, on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and there is a plethora of activities you can do here, from hikes up to breath-taking views, to helicopter rides above the spray, to a brave swim out to the edge of Devil’s Pool.
Zambia’s Best National Parks & Game Reserves
South Luangwa National Park, North Luangwa National Park, Lower Zambezi National Park and Kafue National Park.
Zambia recently regained its status as a Big Five safari destination, as black rhino were reintroduced to North Luangwa National Park. The other big names can also be found here, such as elephants, giraffes, zebra, buffalo, lions, hippos, leopards, African wild dogs and even cheetahs.
On a night safari in South Luangwa, you might also be treated to sightings of nocturnal creatures, such as honey badgers, African wild cats, porcupines, civets, genets and perhaps even the rare and critically endangered pangolin.
