Zambia safaris and holidays by Cox & Kings

Zambia is the ultimate safari destination, away from the tourist crowds. Zambia’s wildlife is outstanding and accommodation is predominantly in small safari lodges and tented camps, which offer an authentic bush experience.

Walking safaris were pioneered in Zambia, although 4×4 wildlife drives are also on offer at most camps, giving the country a history of exceptional guiding. Night safari drives, allowed in all parks, provide a great opportunity to spot nocturnal species.

There is quite a distance between the parks and the roads are in poor condition, so we suggest that you fly from camp to camp.
