Zambia Safaris

Zambia is not a major safari destination in itself, but a visit to Zambia's Victoria Falls is frequently combined with a safari in neighboring Botswana's spectacular Okavango Delta and Kalahari Desert. The small and historic town of Livingstone is the starting point for many trips to Zambia due to its proximity to Victoria Falls. Described by the Kololo tribe in the 1800s as Mosi-oa-Tunya -- the smoke that thunders -- the falls plummet more than 100 meters into the Zambezi Gorge below, creating a thundering curtain of water. At the height of flood season, 546 million cubic meters of water per minute soar over the basalt cliffs.

Tour operators often can arrange for a white-water rafting trip, a helicopter flightseeing excursion over the falls or -- for the especially adventurous traveler -- a plunge on the world's second-highest bungee jump, off the Victoria Falls Bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Many Zambia safaris visit South Luangwa National Park, which contains 60 animal species and more than 400 bird species, or Lower Zambezi National Park, a pristine wilderness also home to a wide variety of wildlife. Travelers on Zambia safaris might stay in tented camps along the tranquil shores of Lake Kariba or visit local villages to learn about Zambia's traditional ways of life.

Zambia safaris are available year-round, and three distinct seasons provide visitors with different perspectives depending on the time of travel. The roads are best for traveling during the cool, dry season (May through August). Victoria Falls is most impressive toward the end of the rainy season (December to April), though the thick spray can impede viewing of the intricate rock formations and gorges. The entire scope of the falls is best viewed when the water level is lowest, at the end of the hot, dry season (September to November). Though bird viewing is better in the rainy season, a smaller number of accommodations are available, and areas such as Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa can be impassable due to bad road conditions. In these areas, game viewing is best in the dry months of June through October.
