Zambia has another major attraction in Victoria Falls. With the chaos in neighboring Zimbabwe over the years, Livingstone has developed a huge following and the title of adrenaline capital! Witnessing this 1 mile wide sheet of water thundering and cascading into the massive gorge below is a spectacular experience! Known locally as "Mosi-oa-Tunya" the Smoke that Thunders, a "Flight of the Angels" helicopter trip truly emphasizes this World Heritage Site.
There is a distinct rainy season in Zambia over the summer months (November to March) where many of the bush camps do close as water levels rise. Expert advice on travel in this country is recommended. The road network is limited and flying is the way to travel around as distances are vast. A browse through some of our suggested itineraries will bring on the African safari travel desire!
South Luangwa National Park
The South Luangwa National Park is home to the original Walking Safari. It is one of the premier game viewing destinations in Zambia and throughout Africa. Situated far from any major cities it is a remote wilderness experience and doesn't have the mass of tourism associated with it as some other National Parks in Africa.
Lower Zambezi National Park
The Lower Zambezi National Park is located 100km upstream from Victoria Falls and opposite the famous Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. Previously a private game reserve owned by the President, this is the newest of the National Parks in Zambia. This has resulted in the park being quite protected and underdeveloped, keeping it in its wild pristine state!
