Top Reasons Why Zambia Should Be on Your Bucket List – Wild Side of Africa

It's time to add Zambia to your list of must-visit destinations! The nation has so much more than Victoria Falls to make it special. Located off the beaten track, Zambia is a top safari destination. But there's more. Here are 6 reasons why Zambia should be on your bucket list!


Discover Virgin Africa

Zambia is often described as the 'real Africa' and in truth, this off-the-beaten-path nation is where one goes to discover Africa; wild, rugged and exactly how Africa was meant to be. Around 30% of the nation is reserved for the wildlife comprising of game reserves and parks. Thus, the areas are home to a pretty large share of African wildlife. And a safari in Zambia means you're in for a treat! You can continue to savour the wilderness long after you leave the parks and reserves by booking accommodation at hotels in Livingstone Zambia. Enjoy the safari-style accommodation and relaxing to views of the Victoria Falls and savannah at some of the more popular options like Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara.


Enjoy the Quiet and Privacy of Zambia

Zambia is Africa's best-kept secret. The nation welcomes just close to a million tourists annually who almost always head out to view Victoria Falls, which you can do easily by booking a hotel in Livingstone Zambia. But the falls are to the south of the nation and none of those tourists' think of visiting the 34 odd game reserves and 20 plus national parks of Zambia! Be smart and book your Zambia safari holiday today! You've got the wildlife all to yourself in an unspoilt almost undiscovered wilderness. A remote African holiday does not get any better than a holiday in Zambia!


Be Awed by Mosi-oa-Tunya

Better known as the mighty Victoria Falls, the local name Mosi-oa-Tunya translates to 'smoke that thunders'. It is one of the world's seven wonders. And it is more than an exotic waterfall, you will never see water droplets float upwards quite like at the Victoria Falls. Besides, in keeping in line with the nation's unspoilt nature the falls can be explored on your own, walk along the banks minus the tourist lines and watch locals take a plunge and swim in the pool below. This is no monitored tourist attraction but nature in all its glory.


Visit the Leopards' Valley

Visit the South Luangwa National Park for an array of wildlife. The numbers that are seen around the Luangwa River and lagoon are thought to be the densest in all of Africa. So, don't be surprised to start spotting hippos, giraffes and zebras almost as soon as your vehicle enters the park. An alternate name for this park is 'Valley of the Leopard'. Hence, spotting leopards within close radiuses of each other is a common occurrence at the park. Although, leopards are the most elusive of wildlife.


Camp Around the Lower Zambezi

The Zambezi River feeds the Victoria Falls. And running along its lower banks is the Zambezi National Park. The area is one of the most remote regions in Africa. You can get there via plane from Lusaka and enjoy camping in the throes of Africa's wildest terrain.
