Zambia's National Parks and plethora of safari opportunities make it one of the best places in Africa to spot the Big Five in their most natural habitat. If you're an animal lover or intrepid traveller, no trip to Zambia is complete without heading out to the plains with a pair of binoculars in hand, in search of some of the animal kingdom's most majestic creatures. 

South Luangwa National Park

This world-renowned wildlife haven is famous for its walking safaris. Explore these wild landscapes on foot, following your guide to find herds of elephants and buffalos, grazing antelopes and zebras, leaf-reaching giraffes, lounging lions and hippos and crocodiles wallowing in the water.

Mosi Oa Tunya National Park

This is the sole place to see the only white rhinos in Zambia, whose numbers have steadily increased in recent years thanks to heavy protection from poachers. Stretching along the banks of the Zambezi River, the park is also home to giraffes, zebras, antelopes, buffalo, wildebeest, hippos, crocodiles and elephants.

Kafue National Park

Located in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest of its kind in the country and covers a huge 22,400km. It's largely unexplored and untouched, and home to a sheer number of wildlife including cheetah, hippo and the aardvark. 

Lower Zambezi National Park

Still largely undeveloped, the beauty of this park lies in its rugged wilderness. Despite not boasting as much wildlife as other parks in Zambia, the opportunities to see the animals wander in and out of the river are great. Backed by an expanse of broadleaf woodland, you'll also see herds of elephants, sometimes up to 100 in size, as well as buffalo and waterbuck.
