Livingstone is described as the adventure capital of Africa. And no trip to Zambia is complete without a visit to Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world.
One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, this spectacular site forms a border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and leaves visitors awestruck.
Proflight flies daily between Lusaka and Livingstone, gateway to this region of outstanding natural beauty where you can not only visit the falls, but also tour Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park houses black and white rhino, elephants, hippopotamus, crocodiles, monkeys, baboons, Angolan giraffe, Burchell's zebra, warthog, sable, Cape buffalo, impala etc.
South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi National Parks are often mentioned among the finest game parks in the world.
The Zambezi River, the fourth-longest river in Africa, offers a taste of most of what Zambia has to offer, from white-water rafting to unmatched wildlife observation. The Zambezi river flows into Lake Kariba, the largest man-made lake in the world.
At this Zambia’s Riviera, you can enjoy spectacular views and sunsets, watersports, wildlife watching or even take a break on a houseboat or floating hotel. At 40 kilometres wide in places, you can almost believe you are beside the ocean.
Visit the Lower Zambezi National Park
Tourists can fly directly from Lusaka to Jeki or Royal airstrip, on one of Proflight’s daily flights, and find a world away from urban hustle on the southern side of the Lower Zambezi National Park.
This is where luxury meets the wild. Choose to stay in a hotel, a beautiful five-star lodge like the Royal Zambezi or Zambezi Grande, or even try ‘glamping’, upmarket camping.
The 4,092 square kilometres of Lower Zambezi National Park offers unfenced safari camps, along the north western bank of the Zambezi River. For lodging, Zambezi Sands River Camp is located on the banks of the Zambezi River.
Step aboard a boat or drift silently past the riverbank in a canoe for the best wildlife viewing, including herds of elephants, hippo, leopard, lion, buffalo, and more than 400 bird species.
What About Nighttime Leopard Spotting in Mfuwe?
Take a trip to Mfuwe on one of Proflight’s daily flights, and connect with South Luangwa National Park with nighttime leopard spotting safaris, rare Thornicroft’s giraffes and abundant hippos.
Mfuwe is the place to witness Africa’s pristine wilderness first-hand with the finest ‘walking safari’ experience.
Fly to Kasama and See the Dramatic Chishimba Falls
Kasama, the capital of the northern province, brings some interesting history to any Zambian tourism itinerary. The Mwela rock paintings reveal a great deal about the lives of ancient Stone Age hunter-gatherers, and a guide will help you interpret the paintings.
Take a short ride from Kasama, can find Chishimba Falls, worth a trip for the dramatic waterfalls, walks, scenery and the visitor centre.
Venture a few hours away from Kasama and discover Shiwa Ngandu, the English-style country house of English aristocrat, Sir Stewart Gore-Browne who supported Zambia’s independence. Tourists can now stay at Shiwa House and enjoy nearby lake and safaris.
Whether you want to do a safari, watch birds, walk, paint, pursue adventure sports such as white water rafting, bungee jumping or canoeing, Zambia’s rich landscape has something to offer everyone.
