Zambia is a truly wild and romantic destination, with remote wilderness areas to explore and astonishing diversity of wildlife. Although landlocked, Zambia has three great rivers; the Kafue, the Zambezi and the Luangwa - which define its geography and the way of life in the adjacent areas.
Traveling through this butterfly shaped country is a logistical challenge because of its size and dilapidated road network. However, this makes for a perfect destination, for the intrepid traveler. Zambia presents an authentic and undeveloped safari experience, with it often being said that ‘some of the nicest people live here’.
Zambia offers very remote, worthwhile safaris that are a little more off the beaten track than what you’d find on a traditional safari. The annual Kasanka Bat Migration, the unusual Shoebill birds, and the newly developed Kafue Game Reserve are all examples of the more unusual things you can come and see.
