A Zambian Classic
- Hippos in Lower Zambezi National Park
Zambia has a lot of amazing places to visit and for you to discover the real Africa.
Luangwa: The highlight of eastern Zambia is South Luangwa National Park. Locals refer to it simply as 'the South Park,' and it was formed as the Luangwa Game Park in 1904 before being turned to one of three game reserves in 1938. The spectacular park spans around 9050 square kilometers of the Luangwa Valley floor and ranges in elevation from 500 to 800 meters above sea level. There's no shortage of dramatic and interesting geography in this gorgeous game-rich park, which is flanked on the west and northern edges by the Muchinga Escarpment and on the south by the flowing Luangwa River.
Lower Zambezi: The Lower Zambezi is well-known for its large wildlife. And this is one of the reasons you want to visit this region of Africa. Consider the following: massive herds of elephants and buffalo, a sizable population of Nile crocodiles, and predators such as lions, leopards, and the African wild dog. Along with the fauna, there is the great blue Zambezi River. It is ideal for kayaking since it flows gently due to its moderate grade. All of this against the spectacular Zambezi escarpment, which gently dips down to reach the river. Because there is so much more to say about this unusual place, keep reading for more fascinating insights.
Livingstone: Livingstone Town was founded in 1905 and was named after the famed Victorian missionary explorer, Dr David Livingstone, who extensively explored this area. As a large European community near to the Zambezi River crossing into Southern Rhodesia, the town was designated as Northern Rhodesia's capital in 1911. As the capital, it had significantly greater amenities than the rest of the country, as seen by the remaining Edwardian structures that line the city's main street. Livingstone was also the founder of the country's first newspaper. The capital was relocated to Lusaka in 1935, and the busy city has become a tranquil town with a distinct charm. Livingstone's closeness to the Zambezi River and the majestic Victoria Falls has led to it being a base for visitors from all over the world seeking to discover this World Wonder. Riverboarding, white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding trails, abseiling, as well as boat cruises, walks with lions, quad bike riding, kayaking, and trips to the Victoria Falls, Mukuni Cultural Village, and Livingstone's points of interest are all available in Livingstone.Send enquiry
