A whopping 30 per cent of Zambia’s landmass is set aside for the conservation of its precious wildlife. There are 20 National Parks in the country and a further 34 “game management areas”. Many of the more remote National Parks are relatively undeveloped, however this makes them the perfect place to head to for an exciting and unique African wilderness experience. Start your adventure at Mosi-oa-Tunya, the incredible Victoria Falls. Then set off on an exciting walking safari in South Luangwa, before heading for the remote and untouched Kafue National Park to see huge herds of grazers and many predators on the vast flood plains. Lower Zambezi National Park, on the banks of the Zambezi River is a great place to enjoy boat-based game viewing and see many Elephant.

The common thread that weaves its way through most of Zambia’s National Parks is water. There are several major rivers in Zambia, including the mighty Zambezi, and wherever there is a good and reliable supply of water you will find large concentrations of wildlife and prolific numbers of birds.
South Luangwa National Park is not the largest in Zambia, but is probably the best-known Park mostly due to the fact that this is where the African Walking Safari was born. The guides are particularly knowledgeable due to many years of experience, and a Walking Safari here gives visitors a much better than average chance of close encounters with Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Hippo and even Wild Dog.
Kafue National Park is the second-largest in the world – a vast and undeveloped wilderness richly endowed with life-giving water. The Busanga swamps entice enormous herds of Buffalo and other grazers, ensuring a large following of predators as well as some of the best birding in Zambia.
The Lower Zambezi National Park used to be the private game reserve of the country’s president and has seen little in the way of commercialism, making it one of the last true wilderness Parks in Africa. It is spectacularly situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, opposite the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, and animals, especially Elephant, move freely from one side to the other and are often seen crossing the wide waters.
No visit to Zambia would be complete without visiting Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, a tiny gem of a Park occupying the most incredibly scenic situation on the Zambian side of the thundering Victoria Falls. This Park is divided into two separate areas, one for viewing the Vic Falls and enjoying some high-energy extreme sports and the other for game viewing.
Zambia’s National Parks offer excellent walking and traditional 4X4 game viewing, but in addition, most of them allow night drives as well as boating and canoe excursions to enhance your Safari experience.
