Some of the best game-veiwing in the world and some of the most amazing lodges
Overall rating
5/5

Having visited North and South Luangwa parks several times I can say that they are some of my favourites in south and east Africa.

The north and the south have very different characters and are run very differently. The south has more accommodation options and a greater network of trails and is more vistited but has such an incredible diversity of habitat that it doesn't seem over-developed. There is so much to see that guides don't rush their clients around. The place teems with life and the diversity of species is fantastic. The variety of accommodation provides a variety of prices and most people should find something to suit them.

The north is a much more exclusive place with just three camps within the park. There is a limited network of roads and all the camps specialise in walking safaris. The park is truly wild and exploring it on foot literally brings you face to face with that. Staying in one these places is not just staying in a game park but more case of being part of it. The sights, sounds and smells of the park are unsullied. The stars and the animal chorus at night are sublime. However, with this awsome experience comes an awesome pricetag. If you do manage to do it, though, you will never forget it.

Just writing this review has made me want to go back.

The Zambezi River, Victoria Falls and Livingstone Are Great Zambian Assets
Overall rating
4/5

A truly rewarding Zambian experience is that which follows the Zambezi River. The river itself is so engrained into the Zambian scape. The boat cruises at Victoria Falls, Livingstone are great and for the more adventurous further travel with the river to Lake Kariba is for the taking or better still follow the river from source. Road network in Zambia remains a challenge but with the new economic growth one hopes for a speedy resolution on this.

Wildlife Galore

Overall rating
3/5

The wildlife watching was poor becasue the animals ran when they saw the vehicle and it was hard to get to, but it was memorable. To be fair, we didnt drive deep into the park, partly because the roads weren't signposted and we got a bit lost. If the infrastructure was improved and poaching stopped, it would be a wonderful destination. We visited in 2004.

Zambia ia mostly untouched by the tourist footprint, and is therefore one of the few places regarded as genuine, true Africa.

Zambia has many great safari destinations - both small and large. No matter what your previous experiences and , there is a park in Zambia that meet and exceed your expectations.

Zambia is not a ''hot'' safari destination which makes it still so wild, natural and beautiful.
