Welcome To Zambia
Luxury Safari In Zambia.
Zambia has established itself as a key eco-tourist destination in central southern Africa. Formerly a British colony, it avoided becoming a hard-line ex-colony and instead fostered relations with the UK. This has been an advantage, as tourism has become a valuable and relatively constant employer and forex earner since independence.
Lusaka is the capital, and the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport the main airport, with Livingstone as another.
There are 13 national parks in this beautiful country, and the main destinations are scattered amongst them. The South Luangwa, Victoria Falls, Lower Zambezi and Kafue are likely the best known national parks.
The South Luangwa is possibly the most popular destination and has become known for the abundance of wildlife….and in particular, sightings of leopard! There are a good variety of camps to suit most budgets, and the quality of the walking safaris is assured. The South Luangwa is world famous and was the location of the first successful lion re-introduction by Norman Carr, who was a park warden there in the early 60’s. It was also the first co-operative community agreement between a safari operator and a community! What a wonderful park!
Livingstone International Airport is located just close to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, which are ‘shared’ with Zimbabwe and so there is an option to fly out to Lusaka or Johannesburg from there.
