Where the walking safari was pioneered. From the thundering Victoria Falls to the undeveloped bush of the South Luangwa to the mighty Zambezi River, Zambia is a wildlife lover and adventure seeker’s dream.
Where to Go
South Luangwa National Park – Renowned for its wide diversity of habitats and high game density and best explored on foot.
North Luangwa National Park – A remote Park with very few roads and no permanent safari lodges – just seasonal camps and walking safaris.
Kafue National Park – Animal sightings are abundant, but people sightings are not. Kafue’s attraction is its exclusivity and excellent game viewing.
Lower Zambezi National Park – The mighty Zambezi River flows through this pristine wilderness area. An unspoiled paradise for game viewing, casting for Tiger fish, canoeing and walking.
Victoria Falls – The largest curtain of water in the world, Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. Adventure activities abound around the Falls – from white water rafting, bungee jumping and swimming in Devil’s Pool to the ultimate infinity pool at the edge of the Falls.
When to Go
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. Many camps are only operational from April to November.
August to October are the peak of the dry season and thus the best time for game viewing along the Zambezi. From September, the water volume of the Victoria Falls can be quite low and so the Falls are best seen from the Zimbabwean side. From December to March, the Zambezi River water levels rise and Victoria Falls is one sheer, thundering curtain of water with an immense cloud of spray.
