The commanding Zambezi River is the fourth-longest in Africa and starts in Zambia, supporting a vast diversity of fish species, game and birdlife. Next, this mighty river travels for several hundred kilometres to the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Finally, it culminates in the majestic Victoria Falls, with its 2-km wide span of water plummeting over the edge into the Baroka Gorge below. Enjoy the breathtaking views, white-water rafting, and much more.
In western Zambia, the Barotse Floodplain, one of Africa’s impressive wetlands covering, is famous for its tiger and bream fishing. It provides fishing enthusiasts with plenty of trophies from May to August.
Zambia shares Lake Tanganyika, the world’s longest freshwater lake and second deepest, with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, and Burundi at its northern tip. Have a relaxing swim in the warm and clear water, but only around Mpulungu, at the direction of a qualified tour guide, seeing crocodiles live on most of the shoreline. Lake Tanganyika boasts several hundred fish species that are mostly found nowhere else. Enjoy your stay in a private lodge on the shores of the lake and go on fishing trips catching goliath tigerfish and Nile perch and relish those relaxing sunset cruises.
It's fitting to end your stay in Zambia with game viewing in Kafue National Park, situated north of Victoria Falls. As Zambia’s largest game reserve, Kafue National Park is a birdwatcher’s paradise in the Busanga Swamps. However, be mindful that lions are known to climb trees in Busanga. Further south, large herds of buffalo and elephants are there to make your experience an unforgettable one.
