A Zambia safari exposes quintessential Africa. Its national parks are enormous, remote and little visited by tourists, while the camps are small and rustic with excellent safari guides and an intimate atmosphere. Contact us now to take advantage of special offers and book your tailor-made zambia safari with Gane and Marshall.
Zambia is located on a vast plateau with three of Africa’s largest rivers - the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa - ensuring a lush landscape with superb wildlife. The floodplains of the Bangweulu Swamps create a massive water-wilderness of reed islands and are home to many rare animals including the shoebill stork and black lechwe.
The Luangwa Valley is famous for some of the best traditional walking and bush camping safaris in Africa. Here night game drives also offer an excellent chance of seeing leopard.
The Victoria Falls divides Zambia from its neighbour Zimbabwe and here you will find many adrenalin sports (bungee jumping, white water rafting, abseiling) as well as the opportunity to relax by the shores of the great Zambezi and visit the Falls.
South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi also have some fantastic luxury safari houses catering for families or groups of up to 8 people (min age 7). Each house has a swimming pool and comes with its own driver / guide and cook.
