10+ Bucketlist Ideas For Your Zambia Safari

Connecting East to Southern Africa, Zambia is a huge country with a handful of standout safari destinations. It remains very traditional and welcoming, predominantly untouched by tourism and very comfortable in its low-key approach to visitors.

What Zambia lacks in fame it compensates for with remarkable wilderness experiences. The Luangwa national parks offer outstanding safari in the north of the country. Here, the opportunity for walking and nighttime safaris make Zambia a great addition to a longer African vacation, especially as a destination to combine with neighbouring Tanzania.

More Things To Do in Zambia

Kafue and Liuwa Plains are among Africa’s most remote safari destinations. They are places for safari connoisseurs, visited by a handful of people who are returning to Africa for the second or third time. Yet if you seek a hardcore adventure in the heart of Africa, these destinations really showcase how luxury is in the experience.

You can see and encounter wildlife worlds that remain completely undiscovered and untouched. Think animal migrations, big herds, absolutely no other visitors, and a chance to explore like the explorers of old.

Bucketlist Ideas in Southern Zambia, Including Victoria Falls

In Zambia’s south, straddling the border with Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls are one of the continent's world-renowned wonders. Nearby Livingstone or the Zambezi River provide a quaint place to spend a few days indulging in the world's most powerful waterfall and accessing a variety of adventurous activities.

These include exceptional grade five white-water rafting, hippo cruises along the Zambezi, and safaris in small nearby parks. International flight connections mean Livingstone is relatively easy to incorporate into a wider Southern Africa vacation and Victoria Falls is particularly popular as an add on to a South Africa trip.
