You are entering the luscious green heart of the African continent. This is a magical, remote country, teeming with wildlife. This is a destination for those who wish to avoid the beaten track.
In fact, many travellers here choose to make their own tracks. Zambia specialises in the walking safari, with some of the most experienced guides in the business, who can help you track animals by their prints and spoor, or identify a bird by its song. And in terms of sightings, safari-goers in Zambia will be well rewarded: this is lush country which draws game in huge numbers.
Kafue National Park, one of the largest in Africa at 5.5million acres, and South Luangwa further east, are home to a panoply of creatures, with viewings of big predators, antelope and hartebeest a regular prize. Busanga, in the north where swampland gives way to the plains, is well-known for sightings of lion prides, and bird-lovers will see much to delight them.
And then there are the Victoria Falls. Zambia lies across the Zambezi from Zimbabwe, and you can approach the Falls from either country. Brave types venture out on to Knife Edge Bridge; while a helicopter tour of the pounding falls, whose name in the local language means ‘thundering smoke’, is an experience to treasure always. Nothing can prepare you for the thrill of seeing this majestic natural phenomenon, whose spray can be seen from a distance of six miles downriver, up close.
