Why Choose Zambia for an African Safari?
If you want your African safari to be full of adventure and adrenaline pumping activities, choose Zambia as the destination. Zambia is often overlooked when travellers look to take safaris in Africa, but it is indeed one of the best safaris you can take. The country has a diverse landscape and the wildlife and birdlife is very impressive, with large numbers of plains game and predators all year round. Zambia is not as developed as other African countries but this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on luxury. The few camps and lodges that there are all offer high comfort, a top quality service and benefit from some excellent positions in game reserves and on the verge of the country’s most famous national parks. The thrill of an African safari in Zambia lies within its superb walking safaris and exhilarating activities at the Victoria Falls and on the Zambezi River, two of Africa’s most famous landmarks.
Experience the Zambezi and the Falls
The Zambezi, one of the world’s greatest rivers and Africa’s fourth largest. The world famous river has its source in Zambia and flows through eastern Angola, through the borders of Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe and on to Mozambique where it empties into the Indian Ocean waters. Near to the river lies The Lower Zambezi National Park, the perfect place to experience an African safari. Here there are huge herds of elephant and buffalo, and antelope, zebra and wildebeest are in abundance. The big cat family can also be spotted here. The Zambezi’s most prominent feature is the Victoria Falls, the world’s largest curtain of water and one of the world’s most iconic landmarks. The water plummets over the edge every minute casting a smoky thunderous spray that can be seen from miles away. Here you can experience exactly what you came to Zambia for; adventure! Take part in white water rafting at the foot of the falls, abseil on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, experience a helicopter ride above the falls, or if you’re daring enough, bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge.
