Zambia Safari 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.

The mighty Zambezi is an icon in Africa and this park won’t disappoint. The wildlife is plentiful, with four of the Big Five easily spotted (rhino is absent). The real attraction is canoeing on the Zambezi. There is nowhere else where you can see such variety and sheer numbers of animals from this exciting vantage point.Read More

Activities include game drives, night drives and walking safaris.Read More
The park is located on the eastern escarpment of the Luangwa Valley, between North and South Luangwa national parks. There are no facilities in Lukusuzi. There is a game scout camp, with no management, and there is just one, very bad game-drive track. Nobody has done any research here, and not much is known about animal populations. There has been a lot of poaching, so numbers are presumably quite low.Learn More
