Zambia

The birthplace of the African walking safari, Zambia is a wild, unspoiled land with a wealth of natural treasures, from the wonder that is Victoria Falls to the game-rich Luangwa Valley.

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 our special offers and book your tailor-made Zambia safari with Gane and Marshall.

Zambia is located on a vast plateau threaded by 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 offering some of the best traditional walking and bush camping safaris in Africa. Night game drives are another highlight of the Luangwa Valley, and offer an excellent chance of seeing leopard.

The Victoria Falls divides Zambia from its neighbour Zimbabwe. Here you will have access to excellent adrenaline sports facilities (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 the Lower Zambezi offer fantastic luxury safari houses that cater 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. Get in touch for further information and availability.

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park centres on the northern bank of the Zambezi River, in south eastern Zambia. It is a relatively new park, with few camps but plentiful wildlife – in short, perfect safari territory. It's great for walking safaris and water-based game-viewing.

Game Viewing in the North Luangwa National Park

North Luangwa National Park

Zambia's North Luangwa National Park caters to those who want to experience Africa at its wildest. Open to only a small number of guests, the park has just a few basic bush camps offering you a chance to experience nature in isolation. Walking safaris are the primary activity, with game drives restricted in much of the park.

South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa is the most famous park in Zambia and one of Africa’s finest wildlife sanctuaries. Walking and mobile safaris here are among the best in Africa. Boating safaris and canoeing are also popular and a select few lodges offer micro lighting. For a real bush experience, we suggest guests consider fly-camping.

Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls and the nearby town of Livingstone are a hotspot for adrenaline seekers; here you can take part in a range of activities from white water rafting, bungee jumping and gorge swinging, to walking with lions. As the Zambezi continues below the Falls there are marvellous opportunities for canoeing safaris. Or you can just while away the day relaxing on the verandah of your lodge.
