Africa's best kept Secret
The Magic of the Secret Season
Ten percent of the country is protected by National Parks and Game Reserves; Mosi oa Tunya National Park at Victoria Falls, the floodplains of the Kafue, the Lower Zambezi National Park on the mighty Zambezi and the remote, unspoiled Luangwa Valley are home to a huge concentration of predators and other game species.
Canoeing on the great Zambezi River is one of Africa’s most unique experiences. Drift with the current, watching the bird life on the shore. Swish past pods of hippos and relax as the canoe allows you to view Africa in possibly the most non-invasive way possible. No previous canoeing skill is necessary as your fully trained professional guide takes good care of you. Walk among Africa’s big and small game in an untamed area, with the security of an expert naturalist and armed guard. This form of safari dramatically heightens the senses and creates exciting experiences not possible in a vehicle. Remote tented camps and luxurious lodges will complement the spectacular experiences on the Zambezi, and game drives and walking safaris will complete this amazing trip. Your Zambia safari will be a once in a lifetime experience! From a vehicle you can see Africa - On foot you will feel, hear and smell Africa.
ZAMBIA SAFARI HIGHLIGHTS
Zambia is perhaps Southern Africa's best kept secret, but it is increasingly becoming a known secret in recent years. Traditionally, Botswana and South Africa have been two of the region's most popular wildlife and safari destinations. However, Zambia is fast becoming an excellent alternative for a variety of wildlife encounters.
Despite being known for the stunning Victoria Falls, the entire country has an incredible variety of topography and habitats, which combined with the tropical climate make it the ideal safari holiday destination for enthusiasts looking for a truly African experience. Over a third of the country is protected within wildlife management areas in Zambia's 20 national parks.
Experience South Luangwa on a guided walking safari. An incredible opportunity to experience this pristine wilderness up close.
The Busanga Plains are Zambia's most significant wetlands and the best place to see wildlife. Predators include wild dogs, lion prides and cheetah.

Best of the Zambezi
This 6-night safari is based around one of the world’s oldest rivers, the Zambezi. Start the safari at Nyamatusi lodge, which is set in one of the wildest and most remote parts of Africa, on the southern banks of the Zambezi. Then head further upstream, past the mighty Victoria Falls, and into the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park to Thorntree River Lodge, also set right on the banks of the Zambezi. Watch the drama of the river and floodplains unfold on either game drives or on the river itself with thrilling canoeing safaris and fishing (catch and release only) along the Zambezi.
This incredible journey takes you along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River where you can relax, rejuvenate or pump up your adrenaline. Cruise along the Zambezi River in search of crocodile, hippo and elephant and a simply dazzling array of birds. Embrace local culture at a local village nearby or gasp at the majesty of the Victoria Falls, the largest curtain of water on earth where you are able to bungee jump, white water raft or zipline. Continue your adventure into the wild Kafue National Park with four nights on the wildlife-rich plains of Busanga. For only five months of each year these infinite floodplains are host to hundreds of red lechwe, puku and the famous 'flying lions' leaping the across the channels.
