Zambia is a land of lakes, waterfalls and swamps, wildlife, tradition and culture, adventure and unexplored wilderness. This is the real Africa. 

Why holiday in Zambia ?


Zambia is completely under rated as a safari destination. The game viewing in South Luangwa, the best known of Zambia's national parks is fantastic - not only in variety of species but in the number of animals that you see. But there is so much more to Zambia than South Luangwa. The Kafue National Park - the size of Wales has huge floodplains which are completely unspoiled and populated with and astonishing assorment of wildlife and birds; Lower Zambezi for canoeing safaris, game viewing and fishing; Upper Zambezi for awesome Tiger fishing and culture and so it goes on...


Gettting around Zambia is not as easy as say getting around Botswana. Distances are greater and there only a few local airlines servicing the destinations (because as the destination is not as well known, tourists are fewer). 

The warmth and friendliness of the Zambian people is legendary. Zambian culture is alive and active, and it is possible to witness some of the most interesting cultural displays in Africa such as The Ku-ombuko as well see and be part of day to day village life.

Dont overlook Zambia for your next safari. The game viewing rewards are well worth it.
