Zambia is the land of the legendary African walking safari, big game and abundant birdlife, mostly revolving around its great rivers - the Zambezi, Luangwa & Kafue.   Zambia offers impressive wildlife diversity as well as some of the wildest and most remote game areas on the continent. The concept of walking safaris was first pioneered in the South Luangwa and there remains no greater sense of excitement than creeping past a herd of elephant, glimpsing an elusive leopard or a pride of lion when you are on foot.

However, there is much more to Zambia than just walking safaris. On the Zambezi River you can slip silently into a canoe to glide past elephants & wallowing hippos, or stand in awe as the river falls away into the Zambezi Gorge creating the thundering Victoria Falls, where river rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling and canoeing are all possibilities for the adventurous.
