If you're seeking for an original African safari participation, Zambia's lend-leased country should be absolutely at the top of your travel bucket list.
Due to the plenty rivers, lakes and waterfalls, with as most noticeable the Victoria Falls, known as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Zambia features more water than any other African country. Still not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should go on a Zambia safari.
20 National Parks
In Zambia there are 20 national parks and 34 game management areas, this offers you a wide range of options to relish a breathtaking wildlife safari.
Because South Luangwa National Park offers incredible daytime and nighttime game drives, it is the most popular choice. A good reason to visit the Liuwa Plains National Park at the end of November, is because you can see the world's second largest wildebeest migration in the Liuwa National Park. In Kafue National Park, you can see lions climbing sycamore trees and swimming in bogs.
The Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls, also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means 'The Smoke that Thunders', is the only waterfall in the world which is longer than one kilometre and has a height of more than hundred meters.
The water of the Victoria Falls, a World Heritage Site, is so heavy that it can be heard up to 40 kilometres away.
The Zambezi River
During your safari in Zambia, you should definitely visit the Zambezi River. The Lower Zambezi River pelvis in the Southern Province is magnificent for bush camping, fishing for tiger fish, boat cruises and other activities like canoeing along hippos, dehydrated elephants and crocodiles.
Lake Kariba, the largest artistical lake, also situated in the Southern Province is another opportunity to spend a weekend for fishing and boat trips.
Kasanka Bat Migration
At Kasanka National Park, the largest migration of giant fruit bats takes place every October. As eight million fruit bats dance in the sky they will carefully pass your head.
If you want to see more rare species, the southern floodplains of Lake Bangweulu are well-known for large herds of the almost extinct black lechwe.
Zambia is generally known for housing walking safaris, this is a great opportunity to be provided with exceptional and reliable game viewing such as giraffe, wild dog, lion, spotted hyena, giraffe, puku and elephant.
