Zambia perfects the balance between urbanisation and unspoilt wilderness

Zambia is the third of three quintessentially African countries that Bushtracks Africa operate within. While regarded as one of Africa’s most urbanised countries, the beauty of the region remains unsurpassed. Bushtracks Africa offers incredible packages and itineraries for guests to explore the unspoilt land of Zambia.

Embrace one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, amongst other gems

Victoria Falls waterfall is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and a prime reason for visiting Zambia. Bushtracks Africa offers a variety of unique ways to view the Falls such as helicopter, Microlight, on foot and by visiting Livingstone Island (Devil’s Pool).

The Royal Livingstone Express provides another stunning opportunity for guests to indulge in a 5 star fine dining experience onboard a luxurious steam engine. The experience blends romance of a bygone era with a modern flair as the locomotive transports guests to the famous Victoria Falls Bridge.

“Zambia has a very rich culture that adds a lot of value to tourism. Bushtracks Africa offer a wide variety of destination activities ranging from adrenaline activities (such as bungee jumping, white water rafting and jet boat river safaris) to the very subtle cultural and historical experiences that guests can experience from the surrounding villages.”   
Catherine Shamasamu, General Manager of Bushtracks Africa Zambia

Gateway to spectacular safari

In addition to the exquisite Victoria Falls, Zambia proudly boasts the regions of South Luangwa and the Lower Zambezi – two incredible destinations that provide the perfect gateway for spectacular safaris.

Still relatively undeveloped, the Lower Zambezi area provides the perfect landscape for raw wilderness. There is great opportunity to get close to a diversity of game as both the land and the water pulse with diverse wildlife.

South Luangwa is revered as ‘one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world’. The amount of diversity and number of animals in the area is unsurpassed. The area is the birthplace of the beloved walking safari which offers the ultimate first-hand encounter with nature. The charm of the area is founded in its ability to adapt throughout the year with the changing seasons, showcasing beauty in every climate.

Bushtracks Africa cover all these areas extensively, along with Kafue, Lusaka and the Liuwa Plains.

Uniquely attributed properties in Zambia

Although there are many exquisite properties to choose from in Zambia, AVANI Victoria Falls Resort and the Royal Livingstone Hotel are two popular Livingstone choices due to their ideal location. Their close proximity to the Victoria Falls and Zambezi River make these two hotels great for adventure.

Adding to the uniquely authentic experience is the wildlife surrounding the properties and guest’s unlimited access to enjoy leisurely walks around the Falls.

The Lower Zambezi offers a variety of accommodation, ranging from Anabezi Luxury Tented Camp’s authentic encounter with nature, to the spacious and intimate Royal Zambezi Lodge.  Accommodation in South Luangwa is just as unique and special, with each lodge offering a memorable and timeless experience for each guest.

Zambia provides further traveling opportunities

Zambia’s Kenneth Kaunda International Airport puts the region in a prime position. Its accessibility for international connections gives the country wonderful leverage to travel with ease.

“Flights from Johannesburg to Livingstone are only one and half hours and there are convenient daily flights provided by South African Airways and British Airways. In addition, Kenya Airways fly from Nairobi to Livingstone and Cape Town three times a week. This makes traveling to and from Zambia incredibly easy.”

Organising a trip to neighbouring Botswana and Zimbabwe can also easily be done, especially when taking advantage of Bushtracks Africa’s day trips to Chobe and Zimbabwe Victoria Falls.

Zambia is a wonderfully peaceful country, with a wide variety of activities and properties giving guests the opportunity to embrace an authentic African experience. The government’s efforts at allocating land to conservation projects, national parks and game management areas has resulted in a country that is magnificently unspoilt, despite its progressive urbanisation.
