Swoop over the largest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls, when you take a microlight flight over the UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, this thundering waterfall is also where you might photograph a moonbow or night rainbow if you’re incredibly lucky. Zambia remains one of the most unspoilt safari destinations in the world, which translates to good news for all of us wildlife lovers!
At the birthplace of walking safaris, get up close to elephants, buffaloes and over 400 bird species. Then, embark on game drives near the Zambezi River, Africa’s fourth-longest river, in search of lions and leopards. Water expeditions are also a must-do in Zambia; go on a canoe safari and attempt to spot hippos and Nile crocodiles, take a relaxing sunset cruise or challenge yourself with white-water rafting and jet boating. You’ll also get to interact with friendly locals on village visits to learn more about their daily lives and visit Livingstone, the country’s most established European settlement, for a peek into high society.
