Zambia, a landlocked country is home to Victoria Falls, the largest falls in the world. This immense wonder of nature known through the ages as “The Smoke that Thunders” commands awe… but also exciting up-close views via river rafting tours and helicopter flights over its massive cloud of mist. So much of Zambia remains untouched and it’s a safari paradise of great African elephants, lions and white rhinos. Travel to the bush for game viewing without the crowds found in other destinations. The main parks of Zambia are South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and Kufue. Each of these terrains offer a unique experience and interaction with nature and wildlife. South Luangwa is no doubt Zambia’s premier wildlife destination home to over 60 species of mammal and 450 species of birds. The park is regarded as the home of walking safaris along with night game drives, sundowners and outstanding safari experiences. The Lower Zambezi lies on the northern bank of the Zambezi River, with most of the game found on the fairly narrow strip of land between the river and the hills. There are only 6 safari camps inside the park itself so one never feels overcrowded. Whilst the Park does not offer a large variety of habitats one of the features that make it so popular is the variety of activities on offer, with a river that is navigable year-round come waterborne activities such as boating and canoeing to contrast with the usual driving and walking safaris that are also available. This stretch of the mighty Zambezi is also one of the best areas in which to fish for the notorious Tiger Fish, Africa’s most exciting fresh-water sport fish. Kafue National Park is Zambia’s biggest and oldest National Park. The central part of the Park is easily accessible by road from Lusaka. The camps in central part of the Park are open year round whilst the flood-waters that cover the Busanga Plains in the summer months mean that the camps in that area are only open from June through until the end of October. The Kafue National Park is home to a larger variety of species than any other Park in Zambia, Red Lechwe, Sable and Roan which are uncommon in other Parks are often seen here as are Wild-dog and Cheetah.
