As a burgeoning safari destination, Zambia is full of opportunities for some truly remarkable family experiences

The wild nature of many of the parks, combined with the open style of most camps, and the often long transit times from place to place means Zambia isn’t ideally suited to families with really young children. However, for families looking to be adventurous, especially those travelling with teenagers, it is a really superb option for a family safari holiday.

A luxury Zambia family holiday can offer such a variety of experiences. Livingstone is ideal for all of the family, with tours of The Falls, boat cruises, fishing, canoeing, walking, biking and adrenaline activities such as bungee jumping and microlighting all on offer. Likewise, with so many amazing ways to see the varied wildlife of the Lower Zambezi, there is enough to keep even those with the shortest attention spans happy, whilst the game rich plains and dry river beds of the South Luangwa National Park can simply not fail to capture the imaginations of all ages.

Over the last few years accommodation offerings have changed as well, with many lodges and camps now offering larger two-bedroom ‘family’ units where everyone can be housed under the same roof. A real bonus, especially somewhere with such a wild feel. Guiding standards have really developed too over the years, and there now some of the finest family guides in Africa plying their trade from camps within Zambia.

If you want a spot of beach time after your safari, we suggest heading to Lake Malawi, which is just a short flight away from Zambia’. The warm waters of the ‘Calendar lake’ (nicknamed thanks to its 365 mile length) really appeal to families looking to enjoy a more adventurous beach break than traditionally found on the Eastern coastline of Africa. There are some outstanding places for families to stay here that dovetail beautifully with a tailor made Zambia family safari. The snorkelling is incredible too!

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
