Why visit Zambia?

Zambia is the undiscovered treasure trove of Africa.

It shelters extraordinary natural beauty and is one of the most pristine and unspoiled wildlife havens on the continent. It is easy to see why Zambia boasts one of the largest areas of land under protection as a national park in Africa.

The thundering splendour of the Victoria Falls draws most visitors to this gentle and peaceful country. Less frequented than Zimbabwe, many travellers prefer to see the falls from the Zambian side and some claim the views are even more spectacular.

Why Visit?

  • Experience the birthplace of the walking safari.
  • Marvel at the largely untouched national parks.
  • Stand in awe of the spectacular Victoria Falls.
  • Unwind in intimate lodges, which are set in exquisite surroundings.
  • Put your feet up on a romantic sundowner cruise.

Although Zambia lies in the tropics, the altitude of the plateau ensures that the climate is seldom unpleasantly hot, except in the valleys. There are three seasons: the cool, dry winter season from May to September; the hot, dry season in October and November; and the warm, wet season from December to April.  The drier, cooler winters are the most popular times, although the summer is an often-overlooked gem and boasts significantly lower rates.

Rainfall varies regionally.
