Zambia deserves to be a much better-known African safari destination, with its abundant wildlife and mesmerising wilderness areas.

Seasonal flooding limits access during some months, but this only adds to the allure. Zambia shares the Victoria Falls with neighbouring Zimbabwe but has developed its own reputation as the spiritual home of guided walking safaris. It’s also the setting for the ‘other’ wildebeest migration, and still moves to the rhythm of the seasons and the beat of African drums.

The town of Livingstone has retained its authentic charms, but to appreciate the true magic of Zambia, you need to head into the wilds. The Lower Zambezi region has almost mythical status amongst safari aficionados, while the fact that some of Zambia’s key destinations are only seasonally accessible merely serves to heighten their appeal.

Annual flooding means that the Busanga Plains in Kafue can only be visited in the dry season – but the chance to spot a pride of swamp lions means that they are well worth the wait. South Luangwa is another reserve dominated by a mighty river, while Liuwa Plains – with its migrating wildebeest and glorious displays of wildflowers – has lost none of its power to surprise. It’s just one of the joys of Zambia travel.
