Zambia has been left in the shadows of countries such as South Africa, Botswana and Tanzania when it comes to safari destinations. Many tourists only visit the famous Victoria falls, located on the border with Zimbabwe.

But Zambia really brings something to the table when it comes to safaris: South Luangwa National Park. It’s an immense nature reserve with lots of wildlife and very few tourists. You really notice this in South Luangwa, and also in harder-to-reach North Luang.

You will meet the incredibly friendly locals when you travel around Zambia, which really adds another dimension to your visit.
