Regarded as one of the last true wildernesses, Zambia is probably southern Africa’s best-kept secret. Home to the mighty Victoria Falls, it is the country’s interior parks that will delight those seeking a more off-the-beaten-path safari. The intimate camps offer a highly personalized safari bush experience that keeps guests coming back time and time again.
The South Luangwa National Park is the place to experience the original walking safari, a "heart-thumping" way to get close to nature and feel her pulse. The Luangwa River and oxbow lagoons are home to hippos and crocodiles and frequently visited by elephants, Thornicroft giraffes and buffalo. This park is one of the best in Africa to view leopards in their natural environment.
Kafue National Park offers a remote and exclusive safari experience. Game drives on the Busanga Plains in search of lions, puku and red lechwe can only be outdone by the option to take a hot air balloon safari and float quietly above the same great wilderness.
Another favorite is the Lower Zambezi National Park. Day and night game drives, walking safaris, canoe trips, river safaris, catch and release angling for tiger fish and time spent in photographic hides leave you wishing you had planned a longer stay.
