About this trip

Dear New Paths Expeditions friend,


Zambia is often referred to as one of Africa's best-kept secrets, and NPE has curated this complete itinerary that will allow you to experience its natural wonders using upscale boutique accommodations, the best guides, and services, and we have included unique experiences that will make of this one of your most memorable safari experiences ever.


Landlocked in Central Africa, Zambia is physically characterized by its vast rivers and basins, the most notable of which is the Zambezi. 


Despite being best known for the breathtakingly beautiful Victoria Falls, the country boasts a diverse range of topography and habitats, which, combined with a tropical climate, makes it the ideal safari destination. Also, Zambia is known as the ideal destination to enjoy walking safaris, and with NPE, you will have the chance to enjoy such activities. 


We will visit the three most important national parks, staying at the best small boutique properties, at the heart of the wildlife hot spots, but away from the tourist masses. Walking safaris, solar-power boat rides, canoe rides, 4x4 safaris, activities that guarantee close contact with locals committed to the preservation of flora and fauna of the country, and even the option to fish for the famous Zambezi Tiger-fish, one of the world's most exciting sports-fish!


Also, we have prepared a fantastic extension to Victoria Falls. There we have selected a family-owned lodge that provides great excursions to the falls, Livingstone, and the other highlights of the region, and also has a first-class horse stable and excellent trails where to enjoy horseback riding.


This is, without a doubt, the greatest Zambia experience available today. The expedition is limited to only 12 participants, and we use very small and exclusive safari camps. We highly recommend securing your spaces as soon as possible.


Please find all the details in the lines below. 


I look forward to having you explore Zambia with New Paths Expeditions very soon.
