A safari enthusiast's dream, you won't have to look hard to find wildlife in Zambia. Over 30% of the country is allocated to national parks and that means safari tours are in abundance. After a day or two taking in the sights, sounds and smells of capital Lusaka, head to the home of lions, hippos and more, at Zambia's leading parks.
Guided tours are available through Kafue National Park, South Luangwa or North Luangwa National Park. Spot all manner of big game from the safety of a 4WD, take a canoe tour along the Zambezi River or, for a real thrill, Zambia is one of the few countries in the world that allows you to take a wildlife walk.
A different kind of thrill
If getting up close and hopefully not too personal with a lion doesn't give you your required adrenalin rush, a spot of white water rafting surely will. Zambia is one of two countries that are home to Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River is sure put your rafting nerve to test. Rest assured that a local tour guide will help make the rowing somewhat less hairy, but if maximum thrills are what you are after then Zambia can definitely deliver.
Bungee jumping, gorge swinging, abseiling and river surfing are some more unforgettable Zambian tour experiences you should put on your itinerary, along with spending some time in colonial city Livingstone. A great place to be based while visiting Victoria Falls, this city allows you to uncover African history at the Victoria Falls Field Museum or spot crocs and snakes at the Livingstone Reptile Park.
