Zambia Travel Guide
Zambia, the land of the legendary African walking safari, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River, abundant wildlife, and untamed wilderness – all in one friendly country. Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, a plethora of wildlife, huge bodies of water, and vast open spaces, Zambia offers unforgettable holidays exploring the real Africa. Acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world to visit, Zambia’s welcoming people live in peace and harmony.
Wildlife is at your fingertips when you travel through Zambia. A pride of lionesses stalks a herd of zebra as you look on from your safari vehicle. Graceful puku and reedbuck prance through the savannah of South Luangwa National Park. A strong population of leopards occupies this safe and breathtaking African wilderness, making them easily spotted, lounging on trees, or walking along grassy paths.
It’s a sight to behold along the Luangwa River when thousands of colorful southern-carmine bee-eaters swarm the area during the breeding season in August-September. Birders delight in spotting rare shoebill storks in the marshy wetlands of Bangweulu.
In the wildlife corridor that runs through the north-central part of Zambia, close to a hundred different mammal species can be spotted. Enchanting Travels has the expertise and local connections required to build you a fantastic bespoke tour, one that explores this amazing spectacle of the African wilderness.
Zambia is also considered Africa’s adventure capital. There are walking safaris through the vast floodplain, and night drives through the bush to spot nocturnal creatures on the prowl. Raise the adrenaline bar and go white-water rafting on the Zambezi, bungee jump near Victoria Falls, fly a microlight over Victoria Falls, or speedboat ride through the Kafue River.
The charming city of Livingstone also deserves some time. From there visit the fabulous Victoria Falls, and its Boiling Pot and Devil’s Pool. Wind up your holiday with a luxurious stay on a private island on the Zambezi River. In this tranquil paradise you can reflect and recharge, and perhaps start plotting your next vacation.
