Getting There

Flights
Lusaka would be your entry point into Zambia from outside of Africa. There are also international airports at Livingstone and Mfuwe and the international carrier servicing this rout would be Zambian Airways.

Land & water
Main entry points into Zambia from other African countries include Botswana (Kazungula), Congo (Chililabombwe), Malawi (Mchinji), Mozambique (Mlolo), Namibia (Katima Mulilo), Tanzania (Nakonde) and Zimbabwe (Siavonga and Livingstone).

When to Go

May to August is when conditions are dry and cooler with the vegetation green and lush. It is not the best wildlife viewing time but it does improve in August.

September to November temperatures are uncomfortably hot but the best time to view wildlife.

November to April is the rainy season, most roads are impassable but bird-watching is at its best.

Highlights not to Miss

Zambia shares these magnificent falls with Zimbabwe, access to Victoria Falls from Zambia would be from Livingstone. The Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park surrounds the Zambian side of the falls and is about 11km from Livingstone. There are many activities to enjoy from Bungee jumping to canoeing and river rafting.

On the northern side the escarpment is steep and covered in miombo woodland.

South Luangwa National Park
The vegetation here ranges from dense woodland to open grassy plains. The park is known for its scenery, variety of animals and accessibility. South Luangwa is about 9 050 sq km with the wide Luangwa River flowing all year round.

The park is about 200 km west of Lusaka and covers an area of about 22 500 sq km. Kafue is the largest park in Zambia and one of the biggest in the world. The landscape is covered in revine forests around Lake Itezhi-Tezhi and Kafue river, areas of open mixed woodland and seasonally flooded grasslands on the northern edge.
