remains to this day wonderful and relatively uncommercial location for safari, with small outfitters continuing to operate intimate little camps in remote and beautiful reserves.
Safari here is unusually outdoorsy and involving, often including a high quotient of walking and night drives. Real safari for real safari people.
The best known safari area lies to the east, where the wonderful South Luangwa
national park provides the iconic Zambian bush experience, along with the more remote North Luangwa
with its specialist walking camps.
To the south Lower Zambezi
is another fantastic reserve, this time also offering motorboat and canoe trips to complement the usual vehicle and walking safaris.
To the west Kafue
is a huge and remote wilderness with a handful of superb camps.
Last but by no means least are the sensational Victoria Falls
, an area full of interest and activity which features for 2 or 3 nights in most trips.
