Zambia is still relatively unspoiled from mass tourism. It’s pristine wilderness remains one of Africa’s gems in terms of wildlife sightings and the true ‘out of Africa’ feel.

Declared one the best places in Africa to see leopard, and reportedly where walking safaris began, on safari in Zambia you will be away from the hoards of tourists and vehicles.

Tools have been discovered in Zambia proving inhabitation over 2 million years ago, hence the rich & diverse cultural heritage. The Khoi-san bushmen were gradually replaced by farmers reaping the rich lands, and later the Portuguese & Arab traders came in search of the country’s wealth of minerals. David Livingstone, in the 19th Century, with the discovery of Victoria Falls, put Zambia on the tourist map and famously described the falls as ‘a sight so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight’. Independence came in 1964 and now Zambia is a melting pot of cultures and languages with some of the friendliest people in Africa.
Lusaka is Zambia’s primary international air hub and the leading domestic carrier is Proflight Zambia, serving the main tourist destinations of Livingstone and Mfuwe (South Luangwa) with scheduled flights. Proflight and charter services also serve the safari airstrips and pick-ups will be arranged with your selected lodge.
