Discover Luxury Zambia Holidays

Although land-locked, Zambia offers access to one of Africa’s most mesmerising sights: Victoria Falls. Sharing the Falls with neighbouring Zimbabwe, Zambia provides a wild and undeveloped side to Africa, and one less trodden by visitors. Those that come to Zambia are rewarded with an alternative and truly remarkable view of Victoria Falls, remote and untamed wilderness in lesser known National Parks such as Kuafe and Luangwa, and safari adventures that showcase some of the best leopard and wild dog viewing in Africa. Coupled with unique river-side camps on the Zambezi and sumptuous treehouse lodgings that are the last word in eco-luxe, Zambia is well worth a visit.

Many visitors are drawn to Victoria Falls, and with good reason. Most come via Livingstone, (named after British explorer, Dr. David Livingstone) where the city’s colonial charm meets the raw natural beauty and riverside wildlife of the Zambezi River. Here it’s a short hop to the mighty and misty Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a breathtaking natural phenomena, bordered by mist-soaked forests and accompanied by a thundering soundtrack. One of the unique advantages of viewing Victoria Falls from Zambia is the access visitors get to Livingstone Island and Devil’s Pools, set within the dramatic scenery of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, that translates as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’.  Devil’s Pool gives daring swimmers the chance to swim right up to the edge of this natural infinity pool that overlooks the vast sheet of cascading water. Adventurous thrill-seekers should also know that only Zambia offers the opportunity to micro-light over the falls.  Other options for adrenaline-fuelled activities include white water rafting on the Zambezi and helicopter flights over the falls, both of which offer a spectacular view and unforgettable memories of Zambia. Sunset cruises, often accompanied by smooth South African wines, might be of interest to those preferring a slower pace to appreciate the sights and sounds of the Zambezi and its inhabitants as the day draws to a close.

Set back from the falls, the rest of Mosi-ao-Tunya National Park is home to game such as giraffe, zebra and antelope, viewed within the landscapes of riverine forests and savannah. Game drives include pathways around the Zambezi river increasing the chance of spotting crocodile, hippo and aquatic birdlife. The Mosi-Ao-Tunya also offers a unique opportunity to track on foot the beautiful rare white rhino, which is continually guarded by anti-poaching officers. Other fascinating game-viewing opportunities present themselves at the Lower Zambezi National Park which is known for leopard and lion sightings and also smaller but just as rewarding animals such as the honey badger and porcupine. In pristine wilderness Luangwe National Park, a short flight from Livingstone, leopards and lion are common sightings plus here you may well see the enthralling spectacle of wild dog in packs hunting their prey.

Zambia also offers some of Africa’s most luxurious and spacious accommodation which after days spent viewing nature’s dazzling and spell-binding sights, are most welcome. Whether you want to snuggle up in luxury tents overlooking the Zambezi or luxuriate in a safari-chic hideaway nestled within the trunks of Ebony trees, you’ll find it waiting for you in Zambia.
