Zambia

Spectacular big game, abundant birdlife and iconic national parks of wonder await on your luxury holiday in Zambia.

Affectionately coined Southern Africa’s great untouched wilderness, this landlocked country has long been a pinnacle destination for adventure seekers and animal lovers alike. No matter where in Zambia you find yourself, you’ll be treated to picture-perfect landscapes made up of hilly plains, vast mountain ranges, and animals of all shapes and sizes.

For decades, our team at Abercrombie & Kent has pioneered one-of-a-kind luxury experiences. Zambia’s wealth of natural beauty and culture is something to be shared, and we’re proud to guide you through all its many splendours. With an experienced expert guide by your side, no rock is left unturned and no question unanswered. We’ll help you embrace your wild side while still enjoying the luxurious comforts of home.

Set off on a world-renowned wildlife adventure in one of Zambia’s acclaimed national parks, catching glimpses of elephants, giraffe, and buffalo herds roaming in their natural habitat. On foot or by 4WD, Zambia’s safaris are second to none.

Luxury accommodation with views to match

Zambia truly is a wildlife haven. From Thornicroft’s giraffe to antelope, impala, and hippos, you’ll be treated to an up-close encounter with countless elegant and impressive creatures. Guests can choose from walking, boat, and 4WD safaris, all of which include an expert Abercrombie & Kent guide at your side. Best of all, you and your travel mates will experience the country in luxury, comfort, and style.

Both the South Luangwa National Park and Lower Zambezi National Park provide picturesque backdrops for photographs and video. An early morning canoe along the narrow channels of the Zambezi River is often the perfect time to witness herds of elephants trekking to the riverbank for a drink and a play.

All of our itineraries are fully customisable to suit couples, small groups, and families traveling with children. We want you to return home from your time in Zambia knowing you’ve just been on the adventure of a lifetime.
