Genuine Zambia
Genuine Zambia

Zambia has some of Africa’s greatest, most pristine and densely populated National Parks. Here you can still experience safari as it “used to be”, but with the enjoyable quality of the present


Experience magnificent safari while catching the highly prized tigerfish (catch and release, of course!), Lower Zambezi National Park

Enjoy one of the world’s most famous and spectacular waterfalls, Victoria Falls

Join a walking safari in one of the world’s most animal densely populated areas, South Luangwa National Park

Combine your South Africa trip with a few days unforgettable stopover in Zambia. End or start the journey with a visit to the unique Victoria Falls – one of the world’s mightiest waterfalls. Walk – accompanied by highly skilled guides and rangers – between beautifully located lodges of a very high standard in South Luangwa. Fish the highly prized tigerfish while watching hippos, crocodiles, elephants and proud African buffalos wandering about on the river bank.


Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s mightiest waterfalls, located in the Zambezi River on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The spectacular falls are about 1.6 km wide and 108 meters on its highest point. Victoria Falls was discovered in 1855 by the Scottish missionary David Livingstone, who heard rumours from the local tribes about some “the thundering smoke”. Mr Livingstone named the Victoria Falls after Britain’s then Queen Victoria and wrote history as the first European to witness these mighty falls. The border between Zambia and Zimbabwe runs in the middle of the waterfall, which means that the eastern part is in Zambia and the western part is in Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls got UNESCO World Heritage List status in 1989 and today the falls are one of Africa’s most visited sights.


Lower Zambezi National Park

Lower Zambezi National Park is located on the north bank of the Zambezi River in southeastern Zambia, opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. Until 1983, when the area was declared a national park, the area was the private reserve of the President of Zambia. This has resulted in the park being protected from mass tourism and is one of the few untouched wilderness areas in Africa. Lower Zambezi is 4092 km² and visitors can enjoy fantastic day and night safaris in the area. Walking safari is very popular and the Zambezi River is an eldorado for fishermen who have longed to catch tiger fish. A guided tour with Mokoro (canoe) on the river is a must in this unique environment.


South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa has been named by many experts as one of the best wilderness reserves in the world. The concentration of animals along the Luangwa River is among the largest in Africa. The park covers 9059 km² and the different seasons changes the landscape from dry and barren in winter to green and lush in summer. Specific and very unique to South Luangwa is walking safari that originated in this park. There are 60 different species of animals and over 400 different species of birds in South Luangwa National Park. The only exception is the rhino, which has unfortunately become extinct.


Lake Kariba

Lake Kariba is a large artificial lake that is part of the Zambezi River on the border between Zamiba and Zimbabwe. Lake Kariba was formed with the creation of the Kariba Dam, which is a dam for a power station that was put into use in 1960. Kariba is known for its rich wildlife and this is because they burned the vegetation before filling the lake with water. Lake Kariba is 97 meters deep, over 280 km long and up to 40 kilometers wide. There are several islands, including Chete Island, Sekula and Chikanka. A popular and unforgettable holiday activity is to rent a boat from one of the ports and travel on the lake among wild animals. From your boat you can make small detours with a zodiac and, among other things, catch a tiger fish.
