Best season: Apr-Nov
Explore two of Zambia’s premier wildlife destinations with a diverse array of activities. Get up close and personal with the wildlife along Zambia’s mighty rivers

The Luangwa and Zambezi rivers course through two of Zambia’s premier national parks. An unspoiled wilderness, South Luangwa National Park is known as the Valley of the Leopard. This is where one of our company founders, the legendary Norman Carr, pioneered walking safaris. With endemic giraffe and wildebeest, and endangered wild dogs, the game viewing here is second to none. The landscape of the Lower Zambezi National Park is entirely different. Its lush channels and ancient forests are a haven for elephants, predators and birdlife. It offers the greatest variety of activities in Zambia, from game drives to canoeing, boat cruises, walking safaris and tiger fishing.

Explore both parks with award-winning guides on our most popular itinerary in Zambia.
