Life At Zambia Wilderness Safari
Life At Zambia Wilderness Safari by Low Jeremy
|As far as African safaris
go, Zambia is the one that keeps its secret for many years and still keeps
some though it is already beginning to take its crown for African safaris
Zambia wilderness safari
is absolutely an unknown realm when compared with more traditional national
parks, wildlife sanctuaries and game reserves. But this still does not
negate the fact that at some rate, the wilderness safaris that Zambia posses
can be rated as top caliber and may even equal the qualities of other more
visited hot African safari picks.
To save you from scouring
over magazines, books and online, we have already collected information
on some of the premium wilderness safaris, game reserves and national parks
in the country. Please read on...
In spite of its difficult-to-pronounce
name, Mosi-oa-Tunya still has something exceptional to scream for, the
mighty Victoria Falls. This sight is probably the reason why the park is
named as such, which if literally translated we may arrive at the meaning
of "the smoke that thunders".
|And the name really says
the truth. It thunders roughly that the sound along is enough to make you
stand awestruck and if you get nearer, you might feel the violent rushing
The park also harbors some
of the remaining rhinos that luckily escaped extinction. And if wilderness
becomes favorable to you, you may also catch some glimpses of the baboon,
impala, giraffe, eland and sables.
Lochinvar National Park
The bird paradise of Zambia.
The credit of being a bird's paradise is given to Lochinvar since some
400 plus species of birds live in here. The big games though are scarce
which is only limited to some herds of buffalo, hippos, spotted hyena,
leopard, zebras and wildebeests.
Kafue National Park
The largest of all wilderness
parks in Zambia, Kafue nurses the densest population of wildlife in all
Zambia. Thousands of red lechwe, endless hoard of antelopes, sable, waterbuck,
puka, roan, oribi, hartebeest, and vast number of predators to name a few.
In fact, the only animal that you wont see in her are the zebras.
South and North Luangwa
How would one describe Luangwa
Park? It is simply the greatest wildlife sanctuary in the world since it
harbors a biodiversity that is second to none with a touch of isolation
and unadulterated wilderness, which makes it almost without compare. Being
unspoilt by travelers except only for the locals and some fortunate foreign
travelers, this park is truly a sight for creation in the making.
