This landlocked central African country is one of the most under rated safari destinations on the continent. It does however have a legendary reputation for its walking safaris, and being rather less developed than most of its neighbours, it has great appeal as a more remote and rustic option for those on a traditional vehicle itinerary.
Like Zimbabwe, the mighty Victoria Falls and all the adrenaline activities that are associated with the falls and the Zambezi River are Zambia’s major attraction. Further afield, the vast wildlife sanctuaries of South Luangwa, Kafue and the Lower Zambezi are the most popular wildlife destinations. The country also offers some hidden gems with Liuwa Plain, the Bangweulu Swamps and North Luangwa being the best of them.
