Things to Do in Zambia
Zambia offers a variety of experiences to allow you to see both the country and its wildlife in unique, exciting ways. Apart from traditional game drives during both day and night, a safari in Zambia can also consist of walking, canoeing, boating, flying, rafting and more.
One of our favorite things to do in Zambia is a walking safari in the South Luangwa. As the home of the walking safari, getting out on foot here is incredible. Safely approaching animals on foot while also learning about the smaller aspects of the bush is something truly special and unique. For those who enjoy getting on the water, try your hand at wrangling a tiger fish or maybe go on a canoe safari on the mighty Zambezi River, slowly floating as elephants cross the river using their trunks as a snorkel. The versatility of experiences here is sure to keep you entertained—you may never want to leave!
