If you prefer avoiding beaten paths, Zambia is the way to go, as it’s the secret garden of Southern African safaris with experiences that are both unexpected and delightful. Our curated collection of all-inclusive luxury Zambia safari ideas uncover this hidden gem; see what inspires you, and we’ll create an itinerary just for you.
Much as I’m tempted to hoard Zambia’s secrets, I want to share what makes this country so special. If you’ve already experienced some of Africa’s better-known destinations, then why not discard the guidebook and head into the (relative) unknown? Albeit while enjoying the safari luxuries you’ve come to appreciate elsewhere, naturally.
Our luxury Zambia safari ideas thread together the jewels of what locals refer to as ‘the real Africa’, and you’ll be struck by the differences that make Zambia so special.
From Livingstone, the classic gateway into Zambia, luxury Victoria Falls safaris offer you the chance to truly experience the deluge of the ‘Smoke that Thunders’.
Zambia can claim to be the spiritual home of the guided walking safari, although the diversity of the ever-changing scenery and wildlife means that these experiences are anything but pedestrian.
Seasonal flooding makes time spent on the wildlife-rich Busanga Plains even more precious; luxury Kafue safaris are a special treat as a result. Further east, you may feel the pull of the gathering herds in what is perhaps Zambia’s most renowned wilderness area: luxury South Luangwa safaris let you mingle with large groups of elephant and buffalo, but very few other humans.
