The best safari experiences in Zambia – Beckoning the passionate wildlife enthusiast

Voyage across African savannahs in search of elusive leopards, majestic elephants, and a host of other species as part of a safari expedition in Zambia that is likely to be etched in your memory.

Make plans for South Luangwa

Few in the African continent rival the flora and fauna on show within the nation’s most traversed wildlife park – South Luangwa National Park. One could choose from a guided walking tour to driving within its territories come morning or night. With some luck, you will be able to spot a leopard on the prowl. If not, you need not wait long before a herd of African elephants fills your gaze.

Access Lower Zam

Though, small in stature, the Lower Zambezi National Park found running the length of the Zambian border along the mighty Zambezi River is one of Africa’s picturesque reserves. While diverse species call the Lower Zam their home, perhaps, a reason in chief for calling by the Park is the opportunity it presents anglers to cast their line in the Zambezi in search of tiger fish.

Admire Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

Encounter giraffes moving towards and out of dense thickets as you ride a robust 4×4 that will deftly take you across rough terrain. Stretching out for 12 km along the banks of the Upper Zambezi is the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which can be conveniently reached from Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara which is a lavish Livingstone hotel Victoria Falls has to offer. During your outing, you are sure to come into contact with antelope, buffalo and the white rhino which is the 2nd largest land mammal on earth.
