Zambia

Southern Africa’s most remote safari destination – where you won’t see other travellers for miles – is Zambia. It’s home of the Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River, breath-taking lakes, wetlands, and an abundant bird- and wildlife. But just because it’s remote, doesn’t mean it lacks luxuries. Zambia is known for its bespoke lodges, mesmerising wilderness, deep bush game drives and some of Africa’s best guides.

Zambia is landlocked, but three rivers – the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi – flow through the country. It means birdlife and diverse wildlife is ever-present. Explore the vast country’s raw beauty by charter flights or off-road vehicle. This is a country for adventurers who will be rewarded with five-star luxury lodges with breathless views and attentive service.
