Why go Safari To Zambia?
Top Zambia Safaris Destinations
Zambia has some of Africa’s wildest and most beautiful national parks: the game-packed South Luangwa, the peaceful Lower Zambezi with its riverside lodges, and the vast floodplains of Kafue.
And then there’s Victoria Falls, a wide curtain of thundering water and where to go in Zambia for all manner of adventure activities - little wonder it’s known as the adrenalin capital of Africa and one of the continent's top places of interest.

South Luangwa was an excellent choice. We stayed at Kafunta River Lodge which was very nice. They have a photo hide which nobody else was using so it was my own private retreat where I got some great photos of the animals at the watering hole. The game drives in the park were led by Moonlight Tours Expedition. We saw lions and at least 7 different leopards, in addition to the elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo, crocodiles, hippos, etc. We also saw quite a few birds, including the bee eater. No need to trek from place to place every other day when you can see so much right here. Highly recommended.
Many Parks, each with their own atmosphere and highlights. Zambia is the real Africa with Savanna areas, wetlands, large rivers and very dry areas. Tourism is less developed, which make it more adventurous but also very expensive if you are not ready to sleep in your own tent. It is nearly impossible to go to most parks without your own car. People are generally very friendly and easy going. Politically stable. No real urban highlights, although you could spend a couple of days in Lusaka without getting bored. Especially eating, drinking and markets are good (if you are into that).
Zambia has some amazing areas, and benefits from not being the most sought out safari destination like Tanzania's Serengeti Plains. Things are a bit more spread out, but that offers some great exploration opportunities. The locals are very kind and warm, and I have visited many of their home villages to hear their stories. The Kafue is also a great area to find the rare and elusive Sitatunga, of which I saw quite a few at dusk. There are some great lodges and tent locations in the area, some of which are permanent, with natural wood floors, stone walls, and traditional thatched roofs. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my stays in the area, and hope to return soon. Plenty of opportunities to view game, birds, or even the famous bat migrations.
Zambia is a beautiful country with extremely friendly people and great wildlife. Aside from the area around Victoria falls there are comparatively few visitors to the country and so one can experience amazing landscapes and abundant wildlife without the crowds often found in Parks in other countries.
