This southern African country has recently opened up to tourists, of whom there are still very few. With over 15 national parks in all four corners of the country, Zambia has an abundance of wildlife that is well protected from poaching, including rare species such as the leopard and the wild dog. From Victoria Falls to the South Luangwa Valley, via the splendid Lower Zambezi, this destination boasts some of the most beautiful wilderness reserves on the continent.

It is the most remote destination in Southern Africa, but also one of the richest in terms of the number of different species observed. One of its main assets is also the diversity of safari activities on offer. On land, you can enjoy open 4x4 safaris, as in most African countries, or walking safaris to see footprints, plants and birds, or even observe animals on foot (a totally different experience outside the vehicle). On the water, you can take a boat trip to see the wildlife from a different angle, or go on a canoe safari on the Zambezi: immersion in the heart of nature and guaranteed excitement.

When to visit Zambia?

The best time to go on a Zambian safari depends on your weather and wildlife preferences. The dry season, from May to October, is popular for optimal safaris with increased visibility, pleasant temperatures and wildlife concentrated around waterholes. However, the wet season from November to April offers lush vegetation, migratory birds and lower accommodation rates. For birdwatching, the period from November to April is ideal. You should also consider the specific activities you wish to do, as each season offers unique experiences.
