Tailor Made Safaris & Vacation Holidays in Zambia


Wild Whispers Africa Safaris

Zambia is an exquisite country located south of Africa; a premier destination for safari- and adventure-seekers. In Zambia, try some of the more classic African safaris through the vast, unspoiled wilderness of a country which boasts with abundant wildlife. South Luangwa National Park – the birthplace of the walking safari – is the place to explore the African bush on foot.

From a range of accommodations available, you can walk through the varied landscapes of the park in search of elephants, lanky giraffes, the elusive leopards, or all three. The variety and expanse of Zambia can be seen in Victoria Falls. This great natural wonder located on the Zambezi River is renowned as the ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ (the Smoke That Thunders), and you will witness the awesome power of the deep-flowing Zambezi plunging some 305 ft (93 m) into the gorge below.

On Zambia safari tours, have the opportunity to venture into the remote, unspoilt wilderness of the Kafue National Park, Zambia’s largest wildlife reserve known for the sheer variety of its fauna and flora, including the cheetah some, to the wild dogs, and an unbelievable assortment of birds. Canoe along the Lower Zambezi where you can spot hippos, crocodiles, and elephants grazing along the banks; the country has more than 19 national parks and 32 game management areas, will take you on a classic safari.

Best Things To Do in Zambia

Zambia Walking Safaris

Zambia is the home of walking safaris and is widely considered the best place in the world to experience this exhilarating form of wildlife engagement. Unlike conventional game drives in vehicles, walking safaris offer a closer and more personal engagement with the bush on foot, accompanied by an armed ranger and a skilled guide. Walking safaris provide the thrill of tracking animals, learning more about plant life and offers a deeper appreciation of the rich diversity of a wild space. South Luangwa National Park is famous for its walking safaris, and visitors can expect to experience the majesty of big cats, including lions and leopards, at close quarters. There’s also a good chance of glimpsing elephants or herds of antelopes, grazing and minding their own business, as you pass by.

White Water Rafting on the Zambezi River

The Zambezi River, which acts as a boundary between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is renowned for its excellent opportunities for white water rafting. The Zambezi is one of the wettest and most waterbound rivers in Africa, and it has earned an international reputation for its challenging rapids and awe-inspiring gorges, as well as its abundant wildlife, including families of hippos that live along its banks and graze among the lush tropical forests. Several companies offer rafting trips down the Zambezi for adventurous tourists who are drawn to this opportunity to take on Africa’s most challenging rapids below Victoria Falls. The rafting below the Falls has Grade 5 rapids (the highest graded rapids run commercially). White water rafting down the Zambezi is a spectacular experience.

Fishing on Lake Kariba

Lake Kariba, which straddles the borders between Zambia and Zimbabwe, is one of the world’s great fishing grounds: a huge man-made lake in which more than 40 species of fish swim around, including the notorious tiger fish, the bravest and acrobatic fish anywhere. Guided fishing tours take place from houseboats and lakeside lodges, where holidaymakers can spend their days reeling in the tigers.
