Tours in Zambia

Zambia is a large country, filled with diverse wildlife and dramatic scenery, and it's one of the finest providers of safari holidays in the world. Zambia tours are focused around South Luangwa, the mighty Victoria Falls and the Lower Zambezi.

South Luangwa National Park is a classic African safari wilderness reserve with outstanding birdlife and an enviable leopard record. There's canoeing along the game-rich waterways of the Lower Zambezi, which allows you to enjoy the wilderness at its most raw; large pods of hippo vie with shy crocs along the banks and herds of elephant come to the water to drink and browse the vegetation. Carmine bee-eaters nest in sandy patches of riverbank and Goliath heron fish in the shallows. There are excellent chances of predator sightings, as well as over 500 species of bird. And you need at least two days to explore Victoria Falls, where you can walk in the national park, or try some of the many activities like rafting and bungee jumping.

In focus: Explore the Natural Wonder of Victoria Falls

Ever since explorer David Livingstone charted a path to Victoria Falls in 1855, they have captivated travellers’ minds. Seeing the Zambezi River fall at a rate of 3 million litres per second and vanish into a mist of dancing rainbows was said to be “a scene so lovely, it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”

Discover the world’s largest waterfall (by width and height) for yourself with a walk through Mosai Tunya National Park. Going eye to eye with a 5,604 x 354ft. fall is awe-inspiring and beckons further exploration. Take a boat to Livingstone Island– the isle and pop-up teahouse perched at the precipice of the falls– for cocktails, crumpets, and jaw-dropping views. If you’re here when water levels are lower (August-January) and feeling brave, take a dip in the Devil’s Pool, a natural swimming hole just feet from edge!

In focus: Canoe the Lower Zambezi National Park

It's been said that where there is a river, there is life. Located along the Zambezi River’s 1,599-mile journey to the sea, Lower Zambezi National Park makes up one if its most fruitful corridors. The river is shaded with lush ebony and fig trees. Zebra, lions, waterbuck, impala, hyena, leopards are drawn to the water’s edge for a drink. While crocodiles, hippos, and countless fish are happy to call the Zambezi home.

Paddle the river in a simple canoe to truly appreciate the river’s power, serenity and vibrant habita’s Mana Pools Reserve lines the opposite shore so the area is doubly protected for an unfettered wildlife experience.
