Top Zambia Regions

South Luangwa Region

South Luangwa

South Luangwa National Park offers some of Africa’s best safari experiences.

Bangweulu Wetlands Shoebill

Bangweulu Wetlands

Bangweulu is the place where the water meets the sky. Remote and isolated with life everywhere you look, the wetlands are fed by 17 different rivers. Seasonal flooding between November and March hides the region’s prolific bounty of wildlife from the world and makes them very difficult to access. And an attractive prospect for the would-be adventurer. Learn everything you need to know about the Bangweulu Wetlands here.

Everything you need to know about Zambia

Good to know Wildlife When to visit

Zambia travel

Zambia is Africa’s untamed child: a place for those searching for the truly wild. Over 30 percent of the country is dedicated to some of the world’s largest and most diverse national parks where mighty rivers are a magnet for animals and bring life to a network of forests and grasslands. Much of the country’s appeal lies in its remoteness: a rugged wilderness, far less explored than its busier neighbours. With excellent game viewing, Victoria Falls and Chobe National Park all in close proximity - this is a serious African treasure.

Good to know Wildlife When to visit

Wildlife

With so much diversity on offer, you’re all but guaranteed high-profile wildlife sightings in Zambia. The country’s national parks are home to an abundance of elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, lion, zebra and various antelope species. It’s one of the few places on earth where large herds still roam the plains, stalked by predators of all shapes and sizes. Zambia’s rivers and waterways provide life for hippo, crocodile and innumerable birdlife. If you’re looking to see rarer animals, the famous South Luangwa is a fantastic leopard hotspot. Or visit North Luangwa to see black rhino and Mosi-oa-Tunya for their white cousins. Day safaris expose you to many of the country’s endemic game species including the Kafue lechwe and black lechwe, while you might encounter the shyer porcupine, genet and bushbaby on a night safari.

Best time to visit

  • Best time to go and why?
    Safaris in Zambia are best experienced between May and October. This is during the dry season, when animals are easier to spot through sparse vegetation as they gather around waterholes and rivers.
  • When is high season?
    Although high season is considered to fall between July and October, the parks and reserves will not feel crowded. Victoria Falls has a greater influx of visitors at this time.
  • When is low season?
    Your safari experience will appear even more exclusive between November and April, as the parks are generally quieter.
  • When is the best weather?
    You will experience decent weather conditions in the months of April, May and September. Although there is a chance of light evening rains in April, these will rarely affect your safari experience.
