Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, including Victoria Falls, an abundance of wildlife, huge water bodies and vast open spaces, our Zambia safaris offer unforgettable holidays exploring the real Africa.
Aside from the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia is home to 17 other glorious waterfalls and 5 massive lakes which flow and shimmer. Indeed with an abundance of water, visitors on our safaris visiting Zambia are surprised that they are in a land-locked country! With over 75 fish species found inhabiting the mighty Zambezi river, making it a very popular fly fishing venue. The most sought-after of these is the Tiger Fish, well renowned as probably the greatest fighting fresh water fish around. It is a ferocious species which can grow as large as 33 lbs (15 Kg) in weight. The gorgeous Yellow-belly Bream or Nembwe reach over 4kgs in weight and is very popular among anglers. Other popular activities on our Zambia safaris include kayaking, elephant back trails and bird watching, which have travelers returning time and time again. Zambia is known as the land of the legendary African walking safari with abundant wildlife and inspiring wilderness.
The Zambezi is Africa’s fourth largest river system after the Nile, Zaire and Niger Rivers. It runs through six countries on its journey from central Africa to the Indian Ocean. Its power has carved the spectacular Victoria Falls and the zigzagging Batoka Gorge. Between the 2 great dams of the Zambezi, Kariba and Carbora Bassa, lies an area known as the Zambezi Valley. Acacia-chocked, reed fringed islands braid the river into twisting channels, often blocked by snorting hippo, wildlife and bird life. The Valley’s beauty has attracted tourists from all over the world and provides great opportunities for unprecedented game viewing and walking safaris. Hippopotamus, crocodiles, elephants and lions are some examples of wildlife you will find along various parts of the Zambezi River.
