Zambia has been a well kept secret by those who live there and those who visit. However, this is changing rapidly as increasing numbers of birders and ecotourists are discovering this wonderful country. Zambia is safe and very friendly. It is accessible and the infrastructure is reasonable. It still supports huge areas of wilderness and it holds 750 species of bird, many of which are difficult to see anywhere else. Amongst its attractions are the spectacular Victoria Falls and some of the very best game-viewing safaris anywhere in the world. For birders, highlights include endless miombo woodland full of tantalising bird parties, vast wetlands, sweeping grasslands, the most southerly tracts of the great equatorial forests and some remote and challenging mountain wilderness areas.
The European winter (our Green Season; November to April) months are the most exciting for birding safaris in Zambia, all of the migrants are present and many local birds are in full breeding plumage and song. Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in South Luangwa National Park; some of the highlights include Western Banded Snake Eagle, Lillian’s Lovebird, Collared Palm Thrush and the stunning Fire-crowned Bishop in its summer finery.
Where: All lodges in Zambia will be home to a multitude of birds.

A Canoe Safari on the Zambezi River, is a thrilling and relaxing way to enjoy the bush, wildlife and birds on the river banks of the great Zambia waterways.
Expect to see hippos, elephant, crocodiles, baboons, buck such as impala, kudu, waterbuck from the comfort of your canoe.
Safaris range from 1-4 nights, with overnight stops at bush camps or similar, or tents along the banks of the river. Great food and stories around a campfire end of an adventurous day.
Some operators offer ‘participatory’ canoeing trips of any duration. All gear is carried in the canoes and camps are erected on islands in the river along the way. Everyone gets involved in setting up camp and cooking. These trips are obviously cheaper and a touch less comfortable, but the thrill of the wilderness is that much more intense.
