Nestling in the warm heart of Southern Africa, Zambia is one the most welcoming and magical destinations in Africa.
Zambia has a proud history in Southern Africa. Originally a British colony, Zambia gained independence in 1964 and went on to play an important role in helping her neighbours to achieve their freedom too, offering sanctuary to the leaders of other southern African liberation movements.
Despite this illustrious history, Zambia has never had to endure serious conflict, either in the pursuit of freedom or in the transition to post-independence government. Zambians are justifiably proud that their country has become known within the region for a stable and democratic government, a fast developing economy and the friendliness and natural hospitality of her people.
Today, Zambia represents an exceptional African safari destination, with a good travel infrastructure, a proactive approach to conservation, and an emphasis on high quality safari guiding. Visitors are also attracted by Zambia’s very low crime rate and the country’s forward looking approach to tourism.
We came here at the beginning of our trip to Zambia and I’m so glad we did! The whole trip exceeded my expectations. Everyone at Jackalberry Safaris was so nice and made the whole thing an amazing experience. Thank you!Daria
The South Luangwa National Park is one of Africa’s, and Zambia’s best-kept secrets.
Remote and wild, this pristine wilderness is home to some of the most varied and abundant wildlife the safari traveller could ever hope to find.
Safaris have been conducted in the Luangwa Valley since the 1950s, when the legendary conservationist Norman Carr pioneered walking safaris in the park. Today, South Luangwa is fast gaining a reputation as one of the premium safari destinations on the continent.
