I am a budget traveller, but willing to splurge a little on a safari. I don't drive so I don't have that option. Is it true that flying in to a national park is the best bet? Is end of October a good time to see wildlife?
Hi Zambia Travelers,
I am looking for budget accommodation in Livingstone, so I can visit Vic Falls. Can anyone recommend a campsite, or even a backpackers. I just want a pleasant place to camp, so I can go see the falls.
Hi, I will be in Lusaka for work at the end of October and would like to spend a few extra days including a short safari either to Zambezi or Kafue parks. Can anyone advise firstly if this is feasible (weather?) and if so any reputable companies based in Lusaka I could arrange this with? I am based in the UK.
It looks like a visa can be obtained upon entry to Zambia. Is this true currently, or are there any difficulties? I'd be coming from Malawi and either entering by ground from Mchinji to Chapita, or possibly flying into Lusaka. (USA citizen) I'm trying to find out to help in arranging air from USA to Lilongwe and back to USA from Zambia.
Hi, Might you have thoughts to share / suggest?
I'm going to be in Malawi for 3 weeks at Mchinji/Chipata border for a project and finish up in Lilongwe, Malawi. After maybe 2-3 days somewhere on Lake Malawi, I want to go to Zambia, hence my flight into Lilongwe might be with a departure from Livingstone (or Lusaka) with international airport.
I'd like to find a way to travel Zambia seeing: Victoria Falls, wildlife, river boat ride (maybe combo with wildlife), and anything else in the area that…
Possibly the best way I can imagine to do an African safari is by self driving and camping using a great all in one land cruiser. We camped for over 2 weeks traveling around the National Parks of Zambia. I have written up my Zambia trip to help others plan their trip.
My ambition in life is to eat every national dish in the world in its country of origin. My blog is my way of keeping track of that. For my Safari trip the food took a bit of a back seat to make room for wildlife.
My plan is to take a 2-3 week, small group overland tour in one of those safari trucks (Sunway Safaris probably) when I first arrive in order to get a feel for the area. But, then, I would like to find several out-of-the way places to relax and just stay awhile.
Any recommendations would be appreciated. I especially would like to support…
I will be travelling to Lusaka for work but will have 2.5 days free. I thought about taking a bus down to the Zambezi and do a 1-day rafting trip + perhaps visit Victoria Falls if it fits in. Is this plan realistic in such a short time? Any suggestions would be welcome.
I am going to Zambia in the middle of September and will be landing in Lusaka on the 17th. I wanted to travel down to Livingstone and then on to SLNP, it sounds like the bus (as opposed to the train) is the easiest way to get down to Livingstone - is this about a 12 hour journey?
From Livingstone to SNLP, is there a route via the Lower Zambezi NP or do I have to go back via Lusaka?
Any suggestions welcome!
