Why go to Zambia

Zambia gives one a taste of the essence of Africa, beautiful, unpredictable, unspoilt, and a country with a vibrancy and color all of its own. The landscapes are dramatic and interspersed with the life giving waters of the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers. There is Lake Tanganyika the second deepest lake in the world and Lake Kariba, the largest man made lake in Africa. There are plains and forests and rivers and lakes and all teem with abundant wildlife. All of these make Zambia an unforgettable destination.

Where to go in Zambia

Livingstone

The old colonial capital and now boasting the tourism and adventure capital of Zambia. Filled with safari companies and places to stay from campsites to 5 star lodges, this is the place to book ALL your adventure activities from white water rafting to gorge swings and bungee jumping. There are elephant back safaris and flights over the falls.

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

Quick and easy option for viewing plains game. Situated along the edge of the Zambezi River, you are almost guaranteed of seeing white rhino, elephant and crocodile. Also has the Old Drift graveyard and the ruins of the original settlement.

Victoria Falls

Roughly 1200km (750miles) long, two and a half million gallons of water fall over a 300 foot drop in a matter of seconds. A continuous falling curtain of water. A path leads alongside this gorge to provide viewpoint after viewpoint of breathtaking splendour.

Kafue National Park

The oldest and Largest of Zambia’s parks. Largely unspoilt bush and incredible herds of game. A mere two hours from Livingstone.

North and South Luangwa National Park

One of the greatest concentrations of animals anywhere in the world. Incredible birdlife and a host of virgin vegetation, minimal roads and well managed tourism make this a park worth visiting. Walking safaris within the park are well known and highly recommended.

Africa’s largest man made dam

226 km long and in places up to 40km wide. Provides electric power to both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Great fishing and wonderful houseboats that can be taken up and down and along the great expanse of water. Incredible sunsets, wonderful birdlife and animals coming down to drink along the banks.

When to go to Zambia

Rainy season is long and stretches from Late October through until April. Although the season is long, the rains are generally very short and heavy and the skies clear up again. May through to August are generally the cooler months and although the landscape is then very dry and bare, it is very conducive to excellent game viewing and the mosquitoes and tsetse flies are considerably less active. The Zambezi is at its fullest in April and May and the river rafting may be closed over this time as the river is too swollen and dangerous.

The falls are at their most spectacular at this time too, although the spray may be so dense that the bottom of the gorge cannot be seen. Although less water in the falls over the drier months, the view is no less spectacular and offers other attractions like walking across the top of the falls to Livingstone Island and swimming in the Devils pool at the top of the falls.
