One of the reasons we think Zambia is the best safari location in Africa is the wide range of destinations within the country for the discerning safari-goer. 

From the unparalleled game-viewing of the South Luangwa, to the majestic backdrop of the mighty Zambezi River, and of course not forgetting one of the seven wonders of the natural world, the majestic Victoria Falls.

Zambia is probably our favourite safari destination in Africa, offering a choice of excellent, largely quiet and unspoilt National Parks that teem with huge numbers of diverse species.

“Zambia is our favourite safari destination, with fabulous game, scenery and guiding.”

Stuart Hunter, AfricaAway

In Zambia you can combine your top-notch safari experience in parks such as South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi, with a trip to the magnificent Victoria Falls, and access to the fantastic beaches of Zanzibar, Mauritius or Mozambique is easy and straightforward.

Zambia offers a wide selection of high quality lodges to suit all budgets, all offering a good selection of activities and the best guiding in the continent.  As well as game drives in open-sided vehicles, visitors to Zambia can take the opportunity to go for walking safaris, night drives (in all Parks), canoeing, fishing, river cruises, visits to local schools and villages, and many other activities.
