Location

Zambia

Zambia is a big country as large as France, Switzerland, Austria, and Hungary combined, covering some 750,000 square kilometers and lying in the tropical belt on South Central Africa, 10 to 18 degrees south of the equator. Being on a high plateau, averaging 1,300 meters above sea level, the climate is very temperate with little humidity. The country is landlocked but has many lakes and rivers with beaches and water sports to be enjoyed in uncrowded and unclustered surroundings.

Indeed the unspoiled nature of Zambia is perhaps its greatest tourist asset. Rich in scenery and wildlife, Zambia today has become the tourist heart of a great continent which offers something that is becoming progressively rare in this shrinking world, the chance to escape from holiday masses and something of an environment that has remained unchanged since the very beginning of time.

Zambia has 19 national parks and protected areas with the core wildlife concentration areas being Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa, North Luangwa, and Kafue. Each of these offers unique and non-duplicating experiences. The Lower Zambezi, which opens to the Zambezi water levels from the Kariba Dam, offers river specialty activities among other land activities. The Luangwa Valley and its Luangwa River lifeline, offers wildlife and birdlife an ecological pilgrimage all along its path. The Kafue National park opens to the Busanga grasslands allowing the opportunity to traverse the plains, spotting wildlife in one of Africa’s pristine, remote, and untouched area.

For the traveler who wants to enjoy the real Africa untouched and at its greatest, Zambia offers walking safaris unmatched anywhere else in the world. Zambia national parks contain the largest variety of animals with viewing and photo opportunities, up close, as nature intended the animals to be viewed.

Zambia‘s greatest asset in their game reserves is water. Each large reserve has a river or lake to provide water during the dry season from May to November. With the Leccmpee River, Luangwa River, the Kafue River, the Zambezi River, and Lake Tanganyika, furnishing water in the dry season, you can always count on a congregation of wild animals and bird life coming to the waterholes for a drink.

Zambia is the only country in Africa that can guarantee and claim to pioneer the ability to see wildlife, bird life, and ecology on foot, and deliver a national experience, all with the safety and leadership of Africa’s best-trained guides.

Kafue National Park

Found in the center of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It covers a massive 22,400 square kilometers. First established as a national park in the 1950’s by the legendary Norman Carr, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Despite its size and prominent location, only two hours' drive from Livingstone, it remains little-known and largely unexplored with vast tracts of its virgin bush still untouched. Thanks to its size and variety of habitat types, the Kafue holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife.

In recent years, the park has seen a well-managed growth in the number of safari camps and lodges that operate in and around the park. This new interest has brought with it more visitors and investment to the area, notably in infrastructure with a number of well-graded roads and airstrips. As a consequence of the increasing interest and benefits in terms of investment this brings, the wildlife is beginning to enjoy an increased level of protection by the Zambian Wildlife Authority (ZAWA), always aided and supported by the operators in and adjoining the park.
