Africa's best-kept secret, Zambia is known for its pristine natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and unrivalled access to the iconic Victoria Falls.  

A great safari destination, Zambia is characterised by its diverse wildernesses of lush forests, enchanting valleys, vast plains, and placid lakes, each home to a multitude of exotic wildlife and big game. On a luxury Zambia holiday, it is here that travellers can experience the majesty of the Victoria Falls - one of the largest waterfalls in the world - whether that be through white water rafting on the Zambezi River, the luxury of a private helicopter, or soaking in the cool water of Devil's Pool, a deep natural rock pool situated on the edge of the falls.  

For those looking to avoid the crowds and discover untouched terrains, visit Kafue National Park, one of the largest national parks on the African continent. The Park offers excellent sightings of lions, giraffes, leopards, zebras, and most notably, cheetahs, and is home to more than 480 bird species. Travellers seeking a more intimate safari experience can visit the South Luangwa National Park, a leading destination for walking safaris; with a number of 5-star luxury camps, travellers to the region can roam alongside over 60 species of mammals on all-encompassing, expert-led tours through the valley. 

Enjoy a river cruise or a canoe ride down the Zambezi River, undoubtedly the best way to explore the remote Lower Zambezi National Park. View vast herds of elephants and Cape buffaloes that fringe the river banks, and encounter bloats of hippos and Nile crocodiles along the route. Travel south and visit the historic town of Livingstone, situated on the Zimbabwe border, offering one of the most accessible routes to the famous Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Zambia is during the dry season between June and November, ideal for walking safaris and wildlife sightings. To see Victoria Falls flowing at its greatest volume, visit between April and June after the rainy season; this is the best time for a helicopter flight over the falls. For white water rafting and access to Devil's Pool, visit between September to November when the water levels are lower.

Things to do in
Zambia
Victoria Falls

What could possibly be more thrilling than gazing upon the world’s largest recorded waterfall and admiring one of nature’s most wonderful creations? Realistically, nothing.

Zambia is home to the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, a breath-taking sight that will flaw any visitor and make you appreciate the power of nature. Watch, feel the refreshing cool spray on your skin and listen to the thrilling rush as the water cascades and tumbles to the pools below. Snap Instagram-perfect shots to make all of your friends jealous as you gaze upon one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Devils Pool

If simply snapping a picture of the awe-inspiring Victoria falls isn’t enough for you, we don’t blame you! You could get up close to the wondrous waters and capture incomparable snapshots while you’re there, too!                                      

Plunge into the world’s most picturesque infinity pool, a refreshing fresh water pool from which you can watch the sensational Victoria Falls and see vivid rainbows as the spray from the pool mixes with the radiant Zambian sunshine. For the chance to capture nature’s most picture-perfect sensation, all while cooling off from the brilliant African sun, a visit to the Devil’s Pool is a must.

Lilayi Elephant Nursery

Africa is world-renowned for the fantastic wildlife that inhabits the lush savannahs and emerald-hued rainforests. If a safari isn’t a close enough encounter for your liking, the Lilayi Elephant Nursery may be exactly what you need.

Visit and learn everything you could ever want to know from the dedicated staff. Situated within its own lodge in Lusaka, this charity organisation adopts and cares for wild baby elephants that have been orphaned. You can get closer than ever and watch as these adorable animals enjoy their daily meals and play together in the safety and freedom of the 650-hectare lodge. 

National Parks

South Luangwa, Zambia’s most popular park, has been claimed to be one of the world’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries due to its high concentration of animals. The Luangwa River is Africa’s most intact river system and, therefore, supports and dazzling array of creatures, including lions, giraffes, cheetahs, elephants and zebras, to name just a few. 

Sunset River Cruises

For romantic honeymoons in Zambia, sunset cruises along the Zembezi are the perfect way to spend a dreamy evening at the end of an adventure-filled day. 

Unwind together on the tranquil waters and watch as the spectacular Zambian sunset paints the sky a royal shade of red and fades slowly into orange and pink in the distance. You’ll hear nothing but the gentle breeze in the surrounding lush landscapes as you indulge in an intimate evening together, drifting peacefully down these picturesque waters and admiring Zambia’s incomparable beauty.
