Superb Zambia Holidays

If you want a really superb game-viewing or birding holiday, Zambia is well known as one of the safest destinations in the world with an exceptionally friendly welcome. It also has some of the very best game-viewing and birding experiences!

It is specially great for active outdoor adventures in the wild:

  • It's where walking safaris first became common and they are still a major specialty
  • It's great for river rafting or canoeing
  • Tiger fishing there is fantastic
  • Or you could try abseiling or bungi-jumping.

To top it all off, there are the famous Victoria Falls.

As former long term residents of Southern Africa, with a passion for wild places and wild life, we are excited to help you plan and experience the best possible wildlife holiday. Whether you want a group tour, a visit to several reserves or an immersive experience in one reserve, or a safari and beach holiday, we can put it together for you with no risk and no hassle. All our bookings are flexible and ABTA and ATOL protected.

Superb Options For Your Zambia Holiday

Whether you are looking for the ultimate in luxury or the greatest wildlife adventure, this is the place to find it. As one of the wettest countries in Southern Africa, with five huge lakes and lots of rivers, Zambia has an extraordinary concentration of game and birds.

You would generally start your holiday with a flight into Zambia's capital Lusaka, though you might choose to get there on  a luxury train trip from South Africa.

Once there, your options are amazing...

South Luangwa

The Luangwa River is one of the major tributaries of the Zambezi, which runs from northern Zambia across the country.

The South Luangwa National Park is one of the two major parks carrying its name. South Luangwa is relatively easily accessible from Lusaka and has an extraordinarily high concentration of game. It offers a huge variety of holiday options.

North Luangwa

Further up the Luangwa River, and much less accessible, is the North Luangwa National Park. This is a great place for those looking for game in a more remote place.


The most accessible national park to Lusaka, as well as the oldest one in the country is Kafue. With a huge variety of eco-systems, Kafue offers a great range of different sights in one park.

Liuwa Plains

Liuwa Plains in the western part of Zambia is a vast, hardly developed area that is very much for the experienced safari enthusiast looking for something more.

The Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park takes advantage of the high density of birds and animals close to the great Zambezi River, and the possibility of using the river as a way of seeing them.


Kasanka is further north and much more remote and is a very special treat for birders in particular.

Victoria Falls

One of the great iconic sights in Africa, Victoria Falls is not to be missed. The Livingstone area where they are located is also a good game viewing area.

We would love to help you work out which of these superb destinations fits your holiday dreams, and to see if you want to link your Zambian holiday with a railway journey, or a beach holiday in Mozambique or Zanzibar, or a visit to South Africa.
