Not only is Zambia home to the mighty Victoria Falls, but is also known for its legendary walking safaris through the South Luangwa National Park, exciting canoe trips down the Lower Zambezi, as well as the wide open spaces of the Busanga and Liuwa Plains offering abundant wildlife as well as some of the last raw Wilderness in Southern Africa.
TOP AREAS TO VISIT
Victoria Falls is on many peoples bucket list for good reason. Besides the falls being a site to behold, the Victoria Falls is a hub of adventure and activity from helicopter flights over the falls to sunset cruises, white water rafting and bungi jumping on offer. It offers a fantastic variety of remote river front lodges and bigger town based hotels.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
May – October is peak season as it is dry and the bush is both more sparse and animals congregate around water sources. November – April is the green season and while it rains, prices are lower and certain areas are great for birding. Many camps in the Lower Zambezi, Kafue and South Luangwa are closed in the rainy season, but a few camps remain open year round.
Great birding and lots of young herbivores born, rates low, good time to water raft
