The Republic of Zambia is a landlocked Southern African country with eight neighbouring nations. The central capital city is called Lusaka which is home to most of the country’s population. Firstly known as Northern Rhodesia, Zambia was renamed in 1964 at independence. The name Zambia comes from the River Zambezi meaning the “River of God”.
One of the few countries blessed with water resources and known as one of the most beautiful, diverse and unspoilt countries, a luxury safari holiday in Zambia has a lot to offer. For example, its stunning national parks, waterfalls, rivers and lakes. About 30% of Zambia’s land is reserved for the wildlife with 20 national parks and 34 game management areas.
The national parks provide pristine sanctuary to the wildlife and boast some of the best game viewing opportunities in the world, making our luxury Zambia safari holidays perfect for those wishing to have a magical experience.
From the North and South Parks on the hippo and croc-infested Luangwa River to the wide expanse of the Lower Zambezi, our luxury safari holidays in Zambia are a popular choice for lots of reasons. There is the chance to spot animals that you have never seen before and beautiful accommodation options.
