In a previous written article here, a list of five awesome options for Zambia Safaris were provided, however a mere five would not do the destination any justice, and hence some additional options for Zambia Safaris are provided below.
- Lower Zambezi National Park: Other than the South Luangwa valley, the Lower Zambezi National Park is without doubt one of the top Zambia safaris that are on offer anywhere in Africa. If you are looking for a remote safari location that offers exceptional wildlife and superb accommodation with really exciting activities, this is the destination for you. The Park is as wild as you can get in Africa. Most safaris will fly into the Park due to road inaccessibility although there are a few drive in options ( these are not recommended especially in summer.) For the best photographic and wildlife siting opportunities combine the Lower Zambezi National Park with a hatta mountain tour to the South Luangwa National Park. Getting there: Most recommended; Fly-in directly to lodge as part of a safari.
- Kasanka National Park: This National Park hosts a unique wildlife event every year between November and December when millions of straw-coloured fruit bats congregate as part of a migration. During the day, the trees are thickly laden with fruit bats shoulder to shoulder; at sunset somewhere around 10 million bats take to the sky in what can only be described as a living cloud. This particular safari is on our bucket list and we recommend that it be on yours. Please note that these Zambia safaris only run between November and December. Getting there: Forms part of a safari package, fly-in or self-drive experience.
- Walking Safaris: Zambia and in particular the Luangwa valley are known to be the home of the modern walking safari. There are few places within Africa that lend themselves so well to walking with wildlife and maximise what the country has on offer. The lodges and camps, combine with professionally trained guides to make extremely active safaris. There is simply nothing like getting up close and personal with a pride of lions or turning a corner and bumping into a herd of buffalo. This is the real African safari. Getting there: Forms part of a safari package, fly-in or self-drive experience.
