Places in Zambia
Kasanka National Park
One of Zambia’s least-known wilderness areas and a real highlight of a visit to this part of the country is the privately managed Kasanka National Park. At just 390 sq km it’s pretty small compared to most African parks, it doesn’t have a huge range of facilities and it sees very few visitors – and this is what makes it special.
