For the cascade chasers, a 4×4 self-drive would explore the country’s 17 waterfalls, including the thunderous, official natural wonder of the world, the Victoria Falls, which generously straddles the Zambia and Zimbabwe border. Vast and beautiful lakes adorn this nature haven, from the World Heritage Site Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika – the largest lake in the world, as well as Lake Kariba – the largest man-made dam in the world.
The splendid water resources take nothing away from what the land has to offer, with 30% of Zambia’s 752 624 square kilometres reserved for wildlife, including 20 national parks and 34 game management areas, there is enough water and land for all to explore.
A visit to Zambia’s oldest and largest national park, Kafue National Park is an exciting feat for wildlife enthusiasts, with 55 mammal species, the rugged track leading here is certainly worth it. South Luangwa National Park is another safari favourite for game spotting and stunning scenery.
For one, Zambia is renowned for its walking safaris where you are encouraged to head out on foot and experience guided explorations of the bush.
Despite its wild beauty and abundance of wildlife, Zambia is a remote and lesser-travelled destination, as a result, it offers a private and secluded African adventure for those who choose to explore it.
Discover the beauty of this country through its world-renowned bodies of water, breath-taking waterfalls and its expansive wildlife terrain, or get a taste of the village life of the Zambian people, whose culture is a blend of values, norms, material and spiritual tradition of more than 70 ethnically diverse people.
From thrilling swims in Devils Pool to exhilarating activities such as gorge swinging, white water river rafting, and zip-lining over some of the most serene and wild parts of Zambia, this is a journey for the adventure seeker.
As with any self-drive safari, your destination, and stop-offs are in your hands, feel free to take a short trip over the gorge and explore the magical land of Zimbabwe, where even more exciting memories can be made.
