Safari reserves & places to visit in Zambia
Kafue National Park
Zambia's largest national park, Kafue's environment differs greatly from that in the Luangwa or Lower Zambezi, as does its game. Come for the plains game on the huge grasslands on the Busanga Plains; the lush perennial waterways; and the excellent leopard-sightings which are usual near Lufupa.
Liuwa Plain National Park
Zambia's most remote and inaccessible national park, Liuwa Plain offers superb big game safaris in a truly wild area that gets very few visitors. There are no safaris here yet; but we live in hope …
Livingstone & Victoria Falls
Alongside Victoria Falls, one of the wonders of the world, you'll find Livingstone has good-value hotels, a handful of lovely riverside lodges and an array of adrenalin activities.
Lochinvar National Park
The vast flat floodplains of Lochinvar National Park, beside the Kafue River, act as a magnet for birds, bird-watchers, and large numbers of endemic Kafue lechwe.
Lower Zambezi National Park
Beside the magnificent Zambezi River, this park offers varied big-game safaris, including night drives, walking safaris, boat trips and canoeing. There are a handful of small, often owner-run, safari camps and lodges in the park.
Although Lusaka, Zambia's capital, has few major attractions, many overnight in a hotel, or spend a few days at a lodge outside the city.
North Luangwa National Park
North Luangwa National Park, the more remote sibling of South Luangwa, has just a couple of tiny bush-camps which focus exclusively on walking safaris; a great destination for safari addicts.
This magical slice of rural Zambia includes the superb bird-watching and wildlife of Kasanka National Park & the Bangweulu Wetlands, plus the extraordinary stately home at Shiwa Ng'andu with its unique history and amazing recent rejuvenation.
South Luangwa National Park
Zambia's top national park, South Luangwa offers superb big- game safaris, night drives and some of Africa's best walking safaris – based at a wide range of small, often owner-run, safari camps and lodges.
