For decades after its independence, Zambia remained a poor and underdeveloped country, often compared unfavorably with its prosperous and well-organized southern neighbor Zimbabwe. In recent years, however, Zimbabwe has been in turmoil and Zambia finds itself unexpectedly in the limelight. Although the country’s infrastructure remains patchy, it possesses superb national parks and some of the finest game-viewing in Africa. 

In particular, South Luangwa National Park is magnificent. The Luangwa River is a major tributary of the Zambezi, and its muddy waters are home to tens of thousands of hippo. Every evening, huge herds of elephant saunter out of the bush to drink and to wallow. Lion are abundant, and leopard are frequently observed, especially on night drives with the aid of a spotlight. 

WHEN TO VISIT

The best time for a safari is July to September; by October, Zambia is becoming unpleasantly hot. The rainy season is from November to March. 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Passport (valid for six months beyond end of stay and containing at least two unstamped pages) and visa. Visit travel.state.gov, and for travelers’ health information, cdc.gov.
