South Luangwa National Park is home to a large population of wild animals and plants, including elephants, lions and leopards – and one of the best places in Africa for a walking safari. The park is also home to one of the most diverse populations of birds in Africa, with over 350 species recorded. The park’s grassy plains are perfect for game drives, while its riverbanks offer prime viewing spots for hippos, crocodiles and other animals that bask in the sun during the day. Zambia safari holidays are a great place to head out on foot through the open plains or visit one of the nearby villages and learn about their local way of life.
Step on board a boat on the Lower Zambezi National Park waterways and drift silently past huge crocodiles sunning themselves on the riverbanks. Watch as herds of elephants roam the plains and keep an eye out for leopards and lions lurking in the trees. Photographers will love capturing the lush colours and wildlife roaming the park’s plains and rivers. Get up close and personal in your lodge's hides to snap pictures of animals in their natural habitat and notice personal behaviours.
A Zambia safari holiday isn’t complete without marvelling at the grand Victoria Falls as the water plunges down a whopping 350 feet. This natural wonder can be heard from miles away, and if you're feeling adventurous you can fly over the Falls in an aeroplane or take an exciting boat ride through them.
