Zambia has so much to offer safari lovers, it’s impossible to tire of it. With the abundance of things to see and do, we found it difficult to narrow down the list of Zambia’s best safari experiences.
Whether you prefer to walk, paddle, soar or simply sit still and watch, Zambia has it all. It’s great national parks and reserves are renowned for the quality of the guided walking safari opportunities that they offer, but that’s merely the tip of the termite mound.
However you choose to explore during the best Zambia safari experiences – by vehicle, hot-air balloon or canoe – there’s always something new to discover here.

Zambia has an untouched quality to it – and therein lies much of its charm. It’s this rawness that makes the best Zambia safari experiences so special. Not for nothing has this alluring and sometimes perplexing country been dubbed ‘the real Africa’.
