Untouched by mass tourism, land-locked Zambia is dominated by its namesake, the Zambezi, seen at its most spectacular as it plunges over Victoria Falls, the widest falls in the world.
For a real adventure, try one of the first-rate walking safaris here in the South Luangwa or North Luangwa National Parks for a heart-thumping wildlife experience that soon becomes addictive. Meanwhile, you can take things slowly on the Lower Zambezi as you safari by canoe, fish and relax in some sublime luxury lodges.
With many private safari houses, a Zambian safari is an excellent pick for a luxury family safari holiday, suiting all ages, young and old.
