Zambia is a beautiful landlocked country in Southern Africa. Bordered by Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Angola, this large natural attraction is unrivalled when it comes to wildlife, people and activities. Zambia’s notable size and remoteness guarantees exclusive safari opportunities, at 5 –star accommodations with world-class guides and sightseeing. We are very excited about our new collection of Zambian properties and hope to add more properties soon. Here are our top ten reasons to bump up Zambia to the top of your travel list:
- Walking safaris
One of Zambia (more specifically, South Luangwa’s) main attractions is walking into the bush with guides or scouts to track wildlife through the lush thickets or dusty banks – hot on the trail of big cats and mammals. Enjoy a thrilling experience of reading animal droppings and paw prints to see them face-to-face.
- Victoria Falls
David Livingstone describes ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ as “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” Named after Queen Victoria, Mosi-oa-Tunya truly is a majestic experience. Visit during May when the falls are in full flow, however, it is no less spectacular any other time of the year.
- Canoeing the Zambezi
Visit elephants, crocodiles and hippos along the lower Zambezi River from your canoe. Paddle at your own leisurely pace as you see Africa’s wild from a fantastic vantage point. Or perhaps turn up the romance with a sunset boat cruise down the Zambezi River.
White water rafting is a thrilling experience and there’s nowhere better than the Zambezi. Whilst you can raft all year round, the best time is the low water season (July – January) when the river at its most ferocious.
- The Zambian People
Zambians are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. Experience a new culture, food and lifestyle as you travel through the city and countryside. The local people are always ready to lend a helping hand or simply have a chat.
- A Bird’s Eye View
Zambia and Victoria Falls is exceptionally beautiful while on the ground, but seeing it from the air will completely take your breath away. Book a helicopter ride or microlighting to see the misty top and green surroundings from the sky.
- Afternoon Tea at The Royal Livingstone
Zambia has no shortage of luxury settings and accommodations. Spoil yourself with some cake and tea at The Royal Livingstone and indulge in some good music, beautiful views and fine china. Perhaps you will see a zebra pass by or a giraffe wonder onto the lawns.
- South Luangwa National Park
South Luangwa National Park has aIl the wildlife that you could possibly want to see and some of the finest luxury safari accommodation. With its great expanse, the reserve is quieter than other parks and offers exceptional sightings without the distractions of other game vehicles.
- Luxury Accommodation
Experience everything the bush has to offer without ‘roughing it’. Zambia has exceptional luxury accommodation in national parks that allow guests to fully submerge themselves into Zambia’s great outdoors without compromising on luxury and amenities.
- The Lunar Rainbow Tour
Lunar rainbows are rainbows that take place at night, when a rainbow is seen in the light of the moon. Victoria Falls is one of a very few places in the world which are known for the occurrence of moonbows. The lunar rainbow is a spectacular event that can be seen only during the full moon.
