Zambia National Parks provide a wonderful sense of remote Africa. Its wildlife reserves are still relatively undeveloped, with limited accommodations and access – usually you fly from one area to the next while on safari. Zambia also allows and encourages walking safaris in its national parks.
Kafue National Park
Kafue is Zambia’s oldest park and by far the largest. It was created in 1950 and is spread over 13,920 square miles (22,400 km) – the second largest national park in the world. Despite the Park’s proximity to both Lusaka and the Copperbelt, it has remained underdeveloped until the most recent years…..
Lochinvar National Park
Lochinvar is a park of exceptional beauty with outstanding birding opportunities with over 420 recorded species in it’s 260 square miles (428 km). The World Wildlife Fund has designated the Kafue Flats a wetland of international importance.
Lower Zambezi National Park
The Lower Zambezi is Zambia’s newest reserve and is still relatively undeveloped with unmatched opportunities to get close to wildlife wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels.
Mosi-O-Tunya National Park
Mosi-O-Tunya National Park is situated along the upper Zambezi just above Victoria Falls. It is only 41 square miles (66 km) but because it is small, it affords a relaxing drive alongside the river for much of the circular route and the wide variety of species can be easily seen including the rare White Rhino.
South Luangwa National Park
Experts have dubbed South Luangwa as one of the “greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of wildlife around the Luangwa river and it’s ox bow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa.
