Luxury Travel In Zambia
We highly recommend experiencing Zambia’s unspoiled wilderness to first time and repeat visitors to Africa who are looking for a slightly more rustic and remote journey. Commanding Victoria Falls, authentic safari encounters, gracious locals, and some of the world’s most intimate (and community committed) safari lodges are a few reasons why luxury travel in Zambia tops our list of adventures.
With our well-positioned office in Cape Town, we’re privileged to take frequent trips to neighboring Zambia, and our firsthand knowledge of Zambia’s travel secrets and insider experiences runs deep. We want to share them with you on a custom luxury Zambia vacation.
Luxury Travel In Zambia
Luxury travel in Zambia includes a visit to the South Luangwa National Park, where superb game viewing awaits. Elephants, giraffe, buffalo, crocodiles, hippos, and the Thornicroft’s giraffe (marked by its ragged star and leaf shaped spots) are just some of the creatures you can expect to encounter on your Absolute Travel Zambia tour, and we invite you to see them by foot, vehicle and boat. South Luangwa is home to the first walking safari, and we still believe this is one of the most fulfilling ways to absorb the region and its inhabitants. We also highly recommend this area for family safari; children have the opportunity to track and identify animals and in the process nurture the respect for the wild world around them.
The pristine Lower Zambezi National Park, located on the banks of the Zambezi River, is another highlight of luxury travel in Zambia. The extensive lagoons, floodplains, and famed Zambezi River attract incredible wildlife to this picturesque setting. We believe it’s one of the most diverse ecosystems and results in a one-of-a-kind wildlife experience. You can even try to polish your fishing skills in the Lower Zambezi, and drop a line to catch tigerfish and catfish in the rushing freshwater.
Beyond game reserves, Zambia is known for other natural wonders, and no luxury Zambia vacation should go without a visit to the famous Victoria Falls which create the natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Helicopter tours provide a unique vantage point to take in the thundering falls, which locals call Mosi oa Tunya (the smoke that thunders), one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World. Nearby Livingston is a great base from which to explore the falls, and the city offers insight into the British colonialism of Africa’s past. Private luxury travel to Zambia also tours the 73 peacefully coexisting tribes and encounters most of the 20 different local dialects. Local communities are warm and welcoming, and visitors can learn about everyday Zambian life from villagers themselves.
In these ways and so many others, luxury travel in Zambia opens the door to the beauty of a country that is largely inaccessible to the independent traveler, and makes for a luxury Zambia vacation you won’t forget. Absolute Travel’s Zambia private luxury tours bring you beyond the Africa that most travelers know and give you the opportunity to see a raw wilderness that creates for a thrilling safari, cultural, and unforgettable experience.
