Zambia

Zambia is one of Africa's least crowded and most wildlife-rich destinations. You can easily see the "Big 5" (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Cape Buffalo) without being part of an armada of jeeps chasing wildlife. It is one of the only places in Africa where you can combine a traditional jeep safari with more intimate and unique walking and canoeing safaris. It's also home to the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa.

Wild Planet Adventures offers a variety of Zambia safaris to meet individual budgets and interests. Our Ultimate Wildlife itinerary is our most comprehensive, and we're proud that it has been named one of the "50 Tours of a Lifetime" by National Geographic Traveler. We also offer the option to design your own safari and pick the locations, length of stay, and price level that is right for you. If you don't see what you're looking for, please give us a call!

South Luangwa, Kafue & Mana Pools National Parks
Discover the three premier parks of South Luangwa, Kafue, and Mana Pools. We've combined some of the most remote, least-traveled and most wildlife-rich sectors of these exciting parks in crafting the "Ultimate Wildlife" safari. Each park offers different eco-systems that are best explored through different activities (jeep, walking and canoe safaris), and feature different wildlife, so you enjoy a more diverse and comprehensive safari than a commercial safari.

The South Luangwa Valley is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa, teeming with elephants, lions, cape buffalo, zebra and more.

Kafue National Park is one of the largest National Parks in Africa. It's wide open flood plains offer an incredible diversity of mammal species --including cheetah.

Mana Pools National Park - The climax of the trip is a world-class canoe safari on the beautiful Zambezi River where we'll float quietly past huge elephants and other feeding animals!
