Zambia for Teens

Teenagers can be full of surprises, but Zambia has enough surprises of its own to keep every teen entertained. It’s a vast, rugged country that gets more exciting with age. Your teens will be spoiled by the landscape, the wildlife sightings and the luxurious lodges and camps. They’ll be so distracted by all of the cool experiences that they won’t even think about checking their phones or wondering what the wifi password is. That’s how spectacular Zambia is.

Zambia for Teens

If your teen loves adventure, Zambia is for them. It’s known as on the of the adventure capitals of the world for good reason, and from Tigerfish angling to bungee jumping, the possibilities are endless. Once they reach 12 years old, they can go on walking safaris in the National Parks, where they’ll get an entirely new perspective on wildlife. Under the supervision of an expert guide, they’ll learn to quietly blend in with their surrounds, so that they can approach elephant, giraffe, hippo and lion.

Don’t forget to take an afternoon nap by the plunge pool, because as the sun sets, night drives are available. If you keep your eyes peeled, you and your teen might catch a glimpse of illusive nocturnal wildlife, like a sleek leopard slinking through the shadows.

Your family vacation to Zambia isn’t complete without a trip to the impressive Victoria Falls. It’s easy to understand why these falls are one of the natural wonders of the world. Adrenaline junky teens will get a thrill from white-water rafting down the cascading rapids, or they can get an entirely new viewpoint of the falls on an exhilarating helicopter ride. For the ultimate daredevils, take a dip in Devil’s Pool. Be prepared to face your fear of heights, this is a natural rock pool perched high on the edge of the falls, complete with a vertical drop to one side.

Zambia is the perfect safari destination for teens. Whether on boat rides down the Zambezi River or game viewing in the Luangwa Valley, your family will make memories to last a lifetime in Zambia.
