Some of Africa’s finest safaris and camps are found in Zambia. There are many spectacular parks that have an impressive list of attractions on offer. Here is the Zambia safari guide that should give you a good idea of what to expect.
South Luangwa National Park
South Luangwa is one of Africa’s best safari parks and is widely recognised as a national park with lots of amazing wildlife. You will find high quality small camps and an abundance of game in this exceptional park and if you are a keen walker, this is the place to be.
Activities on a Safari
When you stay in a safari camp, the activities you take part in are catered to your interests. Most Zambian camps contain two activities per day, each lasting up to three hours. In fact, your days will be full of fun and exciting activities as you will spend most of your time exploring the safaris from an open-topped vehicle, or going on guided walks. Just don’t forget to wear light-colour clothing and make sure you have adequate single travel insurance for a safe safari experience.
Livingstone and Victoria Falls
The best part of your trip is a drive to Victoria Falls. With the stunning river lodges and the 4 star hotels that are available in this area, travellers will have a choice of luxury accommodation while visiting Livingstone.
Kafue National Park
The less developed and cooler national park in Zambia has rare species like cheetah that can’t be seen anywhere else in Zambia. The gems of this park are the Busanga Plains, which should not be missed. If you are the adventurous type, don’t miss the remote area of South Luangwa. This is one of the best destinations for safari lovers, especially for walkers who wish to stay at the local camps.
Most of the camps in Zambia are based in and around the national parks. These safari camps are small with just two or three guest rooms. This is expected as you won’t find any large safari hotels in Zambia. Most camps are family run and hosted by knowledgeable people who can guide you in your safari experience. Most safari camps are equipped with en-suite rooms and basic facilities. You can easily book your safari accommodation online or as a package when selecting your tour.
As Zambia has the lowest population to land ratio in Africa, most of the country is unspoiled and in natural state. You can easily see the wild animals some of which have had little or no contact with humans. The national parks present these rare and wild animals in their natural habitat, and you can easily watch them from your open-topped vehicle.
