Popular Routes Where Wildlife Viewing Is a Major Part of the Tour

The best way to visit the parks in Zambia is by small aircraft. Zambia is all about in-depth safaris. It is not unusual to spend your whole holiday in one or two parks getting to know them thoroughly. Aside from game drives, walking and boat safaris are usually part of the package.

Zambia's Best (1.5 to 2.5 weeks)

  • Victoria Falls (1 to 3 days) is Africa’s most spectacular waterfall
  • Kafue National Park (3 to 5 days) is one of the largest parks in Africa and known for great leopard sightings
  • South Luangwa National Park (3 to 6 days) is Zambia’s premier park, famous for its walking safaris
  • Lower Zambezi National Park (3 to 5 days) is great for canoeing safaris -seeing animals from this vantage point is spectacular

Popular add-ons:

  • North Luangwa National Park for walking in pristine wilderness
  • Liuwa Plain National Park for a truly remote wilderness experience
