South Luangwa national park

South Luangwa National Park is Zambia's most famous safari reserve and the birthplace of game walks, one of the most beautiful and popular ways to explore wildlife. The namesake Luangwa River is home to one of the largest populations of hippos and crocodiles. There are many elephants in the river valley, which also like to visit the safari camps from time to time. The park is known for its predators: lions, spotted hyenas and the endangered African wild dogs. Above all, it is one of the best places in the world to see leopards.

Lower Zambezi national park

The Lower Zambezi National Park in the south-east of the country looks wonderfully untouched and pristine, as it has been far less developed for tourism than most of its African counterparts. The Zambezi Valley, which is demarcated by a cliff to the north and the river to the south, is where most of the animals that can be seen along the north-western bank of the Zambezi gather from June to October. Large herds of elephants, sometimes numbering over 100, come here to cool off and drink because of the often very hot temperatures. The landscape of the national park varies greatly. From wide hilly landscapes in the north to various forests and the evergreen riparian stretches with numerous pools and islands.

Lerato Adventures – Victoria Falls from the Zambian side

Victoria Falls (zambian side)

Victoria Falls is a spectacular sight of impressive beauty and size, where the Zambezi River, which forms the natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, plunges over a hundred metres into a gorge. The Kololo tribe living in the area called it «Mosi-oa-Tunya» – «Thundering Smoke» – because of the strong spray and incredible noise caused by the rushing water. The best time to see the falls from the Zambian side is between July and August, when the water level starts to drop but is not yet dry. During the low water season from September to early December, the Zambian side is virtually dry and there is nothing to see except a dry rock face. However, this offers a unique opportunity to visit Devil's Pool – a natural rock pool on the edge of the falls, right next to Livingstone Island. Here you can lie on your stomach and look over the edge of the waterfall.

Lerato Adventures – Elephant in Kafue National Park, Zambia

Kafue national park

Kafue National Park is the largest national park in Zambia, covering about 22'400 km². Among safari fans, the park is known for its great antelope diversity with more than 20 different species, like kudu, impala, bushbuck and waterbuck, as well as puku or the lechwe which is often seen in the Kafue swamps. Besides antelope, zebra, primates and warthogs are also at home here, and of course predators like lions, leopards, spotted hyenas and the rare wild dogs. The safari area is named after the Kafue River, which flows through the park. Together with its tributaries, the Lunga and Lufupa rivers, it shapes the park's diverse landscapes and wildlife. The forests that sprout around the Lufupa in the north change more clearly into bush landscapes the further south you go. The foothills of the Kalahari define the desert-like south of Kafue National Park.
