With a fascinating culture, large unspoilt national parks teeming with wildlife and home to one of the wonders of the world, it is no surprise that Zambia is an understated yet excellent safari destination. The South Luangwa National Park is certainly one of Africa’s best kept safari secrets. It is one of the best places to see big game on foot and is paradise if you are into your bird watching.

The Lower Zambezi National Park is still slightly undeveloped – and that’s where its beauty lies. Its remoteness and pure, untouched wilderness is full of charm. Canoe down its rivers and get as close as possible to the game around you.

Make sure that at some point on your Zambian holiday you head to the spectacular Victoria FallsThe most expansive curtain of water in the world, it is 1708 meters wide. Perhaps try out some of the activities on offer – bungee jumping, rafting, kayaking – if you dare!

Below are some of our favourite properties in Zambia, be they riverside lodges in the Zambezi or five star luxury by Victoria Falls.
