Luxury Holidays in Zambia

Get in on Africa’s best kept secret with a trip to Zambia, home to some of the continent’s best national parks, walking safaris and fishing. On a luxury holiday with Lightfoot Travel, we can customise an itinerary entirely to your needs.

Key wildlife spots in Zambia include South Luangwa National Park, one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in the world and the home of the Luangwa River, whose oxbow lagoons act as a draw for wildlife and offer visitors a chance to spot the big five on foot.

For an extra helping hand, the park’s guides have an uncanny knack of spotting leopards in the trees from afar, and are a fountain of knowledge about the wildlife in the area.

Another must-visit is Victoria Falls, a breathtaking experience for those lucky enough to get up close to this gargantuan waterfall, which is 1708 wide and drops more than 100 metres into the gorge below. For a special glimpse at this watery goliath, see the falls on a helicopter tour.

For the more adventurous traveller, Zambia is host to a plethora of activities, from whitewater rafting on the Zambezi River to tiger fishing on a canoeing safari, or getting close to big game in the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Nature may well be the order of the day in Zambia, with pristine landscape and bush camps aplenty, but there are also several stylish luxury lodges here, offering a comfortable refuge from the wilderness, and a chance to relax to the sounds of the wild in five-star surrounds.
