Zambia is a wilderness adventure destination that encompasses rugged terrain, diverse wildlife and the world-renowned Victoria Falls. Voted as the "Safest Country in the World to visit in 2018", Zambia boasts a wide range of adrenalin activities including scenic helicopter flights, white water rafting and walking along the edge of the Falls. A visit to Victoria Falls in Livingstone combines perfectly with a safari experience in one of twenty national parks. Ranking amongst the finest game parks in the world, Zambia offers unforgettable game drives, river safaris, and walking safaris in a remote part of Africa.
Zambia has a sub-tropical climate and its weather is defined by a wet and dry season rather than summer and winter.
The best time for a safari in Zambia is during the Dry season, May to October, when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the Wet season, from November to April, dirt roads in the parks can become impassable, and most parks and camps close down.
The Mfuwe sector of South Luangwa National Park has sandy soil and all-weather roads, making it accessible year-round.
The best time to visit Victoria Falls on the Zambia side is at the end of the rainy season (March-May) when the Zambezi River is in full flood and the falls are at their most spectacular.
If you travel during the dry season (especially in October and November) there may be no water coming over the Zambian side of the falls, in which case you'll need to cross over to Zimbabwe to see the main falls. Certain activities such as white-water rafting are only on offer when water levels are low, and this is also the time to take a dip in the Devil’s Pool.
Zambia was voted the "Safest Country in the World to visit in 2018" after a comprehensive evaluation by the US Department of State and the Global Peace Index. A country known for its rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, Zambia is the ideal destination for travelers looking for a true wilderness adventure. The top attraction is the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. Internationally recognized as one of the “Seven Wonders Of The World”, the Falls is a spectacular sight with never-ending rainbows and the greatest falling curtain of water.
During the drier months of the year, it is possible to walk along the lip of the falls and can only be done from the Zambian side. After thousands of years of erosion, a rock pool formed right on the very edge of the 100m sheer drop, making Devil's Pool a popular attraction for the fearless traveler.
Zambia is home to twenty national parks with South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi ranking amongst the finest game parks in the world.
South Luangwa is famous for walking safaris and is the finest way to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness first-hand. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species to be seen in the reserve.
Kafue is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks offering a diversity of animals including rare antelope and great opportunities to view the highly sought after African wild dog
Lower Zambezi is still relatively undeveloped with its beauty lying in its wilderness state. The park offers the opportunity to get close to game wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels and to view the thriving birdlife along the riverbanks.
