Any trip to Zambia offers an unique experience which is authentically African. Located in the south of the continent, it showcases some of the best safari spots in the world, as well as Victoria Falls – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. If you want to escape from civilization, then the wide open expanses of Zambia offer numerous ways to do just that. National parks can be found in almost every part of Zambia, but is where you’ll find a wealth of national parkland, the plains of South Luangwa one of the most popular. Expect to encounter free-roaming elephants, giraffes and the hippo hangout along the Luangwa River. Keep your eyes peeled to the skies, and you’ll take in some 400 species of bird life. A visit to Victoria Falls is indescribably awe-inspiring; this cascading curtain of water plunges into the Zambezi River from over 100 m high. To take in a truly special view of the tumbling waters, Knife Edge Bridge provides an unobstructed vista over the main falls as well as the boiling point where the river turns and heads towards a gorge. Zambia offers accommodation to suit all needs, from guest houses in Livingston to safari lodges within the national parks.
