A real African adventure

Delve into the heart of Africa in Zambia: where wildlife lies in abundance and the views are simply spectacular. 

Be in awe of the mighty Victoria Falls and step into Zambia's wilderness on a walking safari to witness the Big Five in their most natural habitat. For a completely different perspective of the plain's inhabitants, take yourself on a river cruise down the Zambezi River, or go white water rafting along the wild rapids. Zambia will welcome you with open arms; the perfect place to escape normality.

Top Tips from our Experts

Harriet

Destination Specialist

“For the ultimate, once in a lifetime experience, I’d recommend booking a helicopter flight over Victoria Falls. Nothing will quite prepare you for the sight from the air.”

Vanessa

Destination Specialist

“If you want to stay right on the falls, book your stay at the luxury Royal Livingstone Hotel. It’s set right alongside the mighty Zambezi River and only a 15-minute walk to the falls.”

Caroline

Destination Executive

“Make your trip extra special with a memorable sunset Zambezi cruise – you may even see a variety of animals, such as hippos and rhinos.”
