Safari Enquiry

This landlocked country is a truly extraordinary safari destination, boasting some of the continent’s most remote and rugged wildlife areas, topped off with the magnificent Victoria Falls.

Zambia safaris are known for their natural beauty in one of the most pristine and unspoiled wildlife havens on the entire African continent, owing to the country’s incredibly low population.

Zambia has a generally pleasant climate, but the river valleys are typically hotter and more humid.

FAQs about Zambia

  • There are a couple of different options for accommodation in Livingstone Zambia for a Zambia Safari, but it would be recommended to stay in a hotel or lodge. Examples of this include; Victoria Falls Waterfront, Ngoma Zanga Lodge, Okavango Lodge and much more.
  • The Busanga Plains are located in the northwestern part of Zambia's Kafue National Park, which is one of the continent's largest protected areas.

There are 4 ways to get from Lusaka to Livingstone by plane, bus, train or car.

Best things to do in Livingstone Zambia 

  • Dip in Devil's Pool

  • Visit Victoria Falls

  • Check out the Royal LivingStone Express

  • Pump some adrenaline on the Gorge Swing

  • Safari/bucket showers are common in mobile or tented camps where there is no permanent plumbing. They are an effective yet environmentally friendly way to shower where water is at a premium and provide plenty of hot water to wash comfortably.
  • Generally, there is an en-suite private shower stall within your tent with a “rainfall” style shower head at which you can control the water flow. Outside the tent, there is a large waterproof bag or bucket which is filled with about 10 to 15 litres (5 US gallons) of hot water before being raised with a pully/rope system to either connect to the shower pipe or fill a cistern.
  • The water is delivered at the ideal temperature so it is best to use it as soon as it arrives. Staff typically fill the showers at a pre-arranged time of day, or you simply need to give them a few minutes notice so they can get it ready.
  • According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, you should be up to date on routine vaccinations while travelling to any destination.
  • Some vaccines may also be required for travel - such as Routine vaccines that make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine and your yearly flu shot.
  • However, you will need to take Hepatitis A - CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get hepatitis through contaminated food or water in Zambia, regardless of where you are eating or staying. You will also need to take prescription medicine before, during and after your trip to prevent malaria.
  • Your doctor can help you decide which medicine is right for you and also talk to you about other steps you can take to prevent malaria. Travellers can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in Zambia. CDC recommends this vaccine for most travellers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas. Source:
