Listed below are some of the must-see destinations, but there is much more to discover here, too.
South Luangwa National Park
South Luangwa has been dubbed by experts as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and for good reason. With its concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, South Luangwa is one of the best national parks in the world. We highly recommend including Luangwa as part of your Zambia tour, and here’s why. The Luangwa River is what gives life to this region, providing water and shelter for dozens of species or birds and other wildlife. South Luangwa is where the original “walking safari” got its start, and is the best way to experience the scenery and diverse habitats throughout. The park’s changing seasons only add to its charm, as it changes from dry, bare land to a lush vegetative paradise. At Souther Luangwa National Park, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable experience.
After the National Park, be sure to explore the Zambezi River in all its manifestations both Upper and Lower. If you want to see fish eagles, buffalo, and herds of elephants, Lower Zambezi National Park is the place to visit. The Zambezi River houses hippo and crocodiles as well, providing a wildlife experience like no other. This massive wildlife sanctuary encompasses both sides of the river, which passes by the striking cliffs of Mupata Gorge with their distinctive red hue. Lower Zambezi is a haven for wildlife of all kinds, and efforts to continue its conservation are always being made.
Also take time to visit Victoria Falls for a day or so (from the Zambia and Zimbabwe side), before heading into the more rustic and remote regions of Zambia. These regions provide the first-time and return visitor with almost infinite explorations. Wildlife and birds are most abundant in this pristine and peaceful country, and the Falls are one of the most popular attractions on the entire continent. Often considered one of the seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is unparallelled in grandeur and splendor, and the view from both the base and top of the falls is undeniably spectacular.
Extensions available to Namibia are recommended, and can be added as part of your custom tour or travel package.
