Zambia

"Home to the walking safari, Zambia is perfect for those wanting to visit the remote and less visited national parks with top-quality guides"

Zambia, a hidden gem, is adorned with spectacular natural wonders, vast expanses, and untouched wilderness that remain largely off the beaten path. The country's geography is defined by three majestic rivers—the Zambezi, Luangwa, and Kafue—which carve through its National Parks, creating diverse ecosystems and breathtaking landscapes.

Each park in Zambia offers a unique safari experience, set against a backdrop of stunning scenery and teeming with wildlife. The country is a pioneer in the safari industry, proudly hosting the origins of the walking safari, a concept introduced by the legendary conservationist Norman Carr in South Luangwa. This intimate way of experiencing the African bush, on foot, brings you closer to the land and its inhabitants, offering an unparalleled adventure. Zambia's specialized guides, who undergo years of training, lead these walking safaris, sharing insights and revealing the secrets of the wilderness.

Zambia's rich safari heritage and its commitment to conservation make it the quintessential destination for those seeking an authentic and thrilling African safari, where the beauty of nature is matched by the depth of the experience
