Luxury safari Zambia, Southern Africa - private safari package

Lion on safari at Shumba Camp, Busanga Plains, Kafue National Park, Zambia

LION ON SAFARI AT SHUMBA CAMP ON THE BUSANGA PLAINS, IN THE HEART OF KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Zambia is one of the least traveled countries on the Southern African safari circuit, and therefore a most rewarding authentic wilderness destination that offers superb wildlife encounters. Kafue national park is remote and wild, with abundant wildlife on the lush Busanga flood plains; the scenic wilderness of the Lower Zambezi national park protects a spectacular array of wildlife in and around the Zambezi river; and intense game concentrations are found in the diverse South Luangwa national park, home of the legendary Walking Safari. You may also want to consider combining your Zambian luxury safari with a luxury adventure at the iconic Victoria Falls at Livingstone in Zambia.
