Often described as the ‘real’ Africa, Zambia’s protected wilderness areas are untouched by the mainstream market and are regarded by many as Africa’s most authentic parks. The lodges and safari camps are small and exclusive, creating an intimate atmosphere with undeniable charm and an emphasis on personal attention.
North and south Luangwa, the birthplace of the walking safari, are areas of undeniable beauty. The mighty Luangwa river crosses the region, providing the lifeline to the large concentrations of wildlife in the area. The Luangwa Valley (or ‘the leopard capital of Africa’, as it should be known) plays host to Africa’s finest bush camps and a concentration of predators that will rival those found anywhere.Explore North and South Luangwa National Parks

Lower Zambezi National Park covers a remote area of 4,092 km2 along the northwest bank of the Zambezi River. Here, travelers will be able to live truly intimate safari experiences with large herds of elephants, hippos, leopards, lions and buffalo, and more than 400 species of birds. Although it is a little-known safari destination, many areas of the national park have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites thanks to the great concentration of wildlife, which can be seen up close on boat and canoe trips, hikes and traditional 4×4 safaris.Explore Lower Zambezi National Park

Lusaka, the capital and commercial heart of Zambia, is not full of tourist spots, nor is it on the wish list of anyone traveling to southern Africa. However, it is its genuinely African atmosphere – present in bars, nightclubs, markets and restaurants – that enchants its visitors and shows the charm of local Zambian urban life.Explore Lusaka
