Ultimate Guide To Zambia Safaris: Africa’s Undiscovered Gem

Zambia, sometimes called “Africa’s Undiscovered Gem,” has been a favorite among serious safari goers for quite some time. Zambia is calling out to the daring and adventurous tourist with its abundant animals and expansive wilderness areas. Although some of the more out-of-the-way bush camps may be operate from June to October, the majority of Zambia’s camps are only open during the dry season. Livingstone, Zambia is the starting or ending point for many of our clients’ safaris in Zambia, and it is from there that they reach the world-famous Victoria Falls, which are bordered by Zimbabwe.

Safari enthusiasts have flocked to Zambia for years. There are a lot fewer people at its delightfully isolated parks and reserves, so you have more space to roam around and enjoy your time there. Walking safaris in the animal-rich South Luangwa, canoeing down the Zambezi River, and traditional game drives in the Lower Zambezi are just a few of the unique safari experiences available. Being in close proximity to the world-famous Victoria Falls is an extra perk, and there are plenty of exciting things to do there, such white-water rafting, breathtaking helicopter flights, and bungee jumping, to name a few.

Zambia, though, is considerably more than just its wildlife. From the verdant Luangwa Valley to the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, this breathtaking nation is home to breathtaking scenery. Safaris in Zambia are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Africa’s wildlife up close and personal or to just take in the stunning landscapes.

Things to Do in Zambia

Zambia is the best spot to see authentic, unspoiled Africa. From the breathtaking Victoria Falls to the thrilling safaris in the country’s national parks, visitors may enjoy a wide variety of activities. One of the most popular things to do in the nation is white-water rafting down the powerful Zambezi River, which is a major tourist destination.

The historic city of Livingstone and the vibrant capital city of Lusaka are two of the most visited cities in Zambia.

Our destination specialists are here to answer any questions you may have about Zambia, including the ideal time to visit, how to organize your trip to Africa, and which safari to choose. You must include this list of the best things to do in Zambia, compiled by the experts at Enchanting Travels, in your Zambia travel guide.

Best Time to Visit Zambia

The months of June through November, which make up the dry season, are ideal for a trip to Zambia. The days are hot and the nights are cool; the skies are cobalt blue. Across the country, temperatures can range from 23°C to 36°C. During this time, there are also plenty of chances to see wildlife.

Victoria Falls makes a great option to combine with a safari, but can be visited on its own when the camps are closed briefly in the wet season between January and February. The moniker “smoke that thunders” is justified in this situation. The Kalolo-Lozi people came up with the name because they were able to see the massive spray and mist clouds from afar.

Even though it rains outside of the wettest months, the mild temperatures, few visitors, and excellent birdwatching more than make up for it.

Best Places to Visit in Zambia

Zambia is more than just a safari destination; it is home to one side of the Victoria Falls and has other national parks. Our experts have traveled extensively across the nation and can advise you on the top destinations to see.

South Luangwa National Park is teeming with wildlife thanks to the Luangwa River, which is home to hippos, basking crocodiles, buffalo, and elephant herds. Grazing herds of impala, waterbuck, and zebra, as well as the lions, leopards, and wild dogs that prey on them, are attracted to the diverse landscape of Lower Zambezi National Park. If you are looking for a safari in a less well-known part of Zambia, we suggest visiting Kafue National Park.
