POCKET GUIDE TO ZAMBIA
South Luangwa National Park encapsulates the essence of a true wilderness and is untouched by modern life. Hidden in the valley of the Luangwa River, it is a haven for wildlife. Herds of giraffe, impalas and waterbuck roam its wide-open plains, leopards hunt in its deep forests, elephants stride through its marshes and hippos bathe in its namesake river. The park is also paradise for birdwatchers, with over 400 species found in its skies and flora.
One of the seven natural wonders of the world and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, the thundering and thrashing of the colossal Victoria Falls is enough to captivate even the most seasoned of adventurers and is an unmissable experience on an African adventure. Explore Zambia’s side in all its glory, embarking on endless discoveries including canopy tours of the surrounding forest, guided tours of the falls, boat tours on the Zambezi River, thrilling game drives and wildlife adventures.
Journey along one of Africa’s longest rivers when you set out on a luxury Zambezi River safari. The Zambezi’s most notable feature is the mighty Victoria Falls located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Here, the river plunges deep into a sheer basalt gorge. Along the riverbanks, the Zambezi supports a range of wildlife. Hippos and crocodiles reside next to calm stretches of the river, while elephants, giraffes, zebra and Cape buffalo frequent the riverine forests.
At OROKO, one of our favourite ways to experience Zambia luxury holidays is to combine it with the peaceful, lesser-explored shores of Lake Malawi, a perfect itinerary for safari veterans. Stay in a luxury beach lodge on the banks of the lake and spend your days snorkelling, fishing, kayaking and embarking on sunset cruises in the clear, calm waters. Lake Malawi is considered a biodiverse treasure as many of its species are not found anywhere else in the world.
