Zambia is dubbed 'the real Africa' and it does provide fantastic wildlife and cultural experiences. The diversity of safari activities is a real bonus, from walking safaris to canoeing on the Zambezi, plus Victoria Falls. Zambia is best visited in the dry season from June to November, when the wildlife congregates in numbers along the rivers, however the South Luangwa can also be visited in 'the green season' from December to May when there is much breeding activity and rates are lower.
Zambia combines well with a Botswana, Zimbabwe or Malawi trip.
