Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Zambia is excellent for safari experiences. The country offers a diverse range of national parks and wildlife reserves that provide opportunities to see the "Big Five" (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) and many other fascinating animals in their natural habitats. The country's well-managed parks, such as South Luangwa National Park, Lower Zambezi National Park, and Kafue National Park, make it a popular destination for safari enthusiasts.

The best time for a safari in Zambia is during the dry season, which typically runs from May to October. During this period, wildlife tends to congregate around water sources, making it easier to spot animals. Additionally, the vegetation is less dense, making it easier to view wildlife. However, keep in mind that Zambia's wildlife viewing can still be rewarding during the wet season (November to April), as the landscape becomes lush and green, and birdwatching is particularly fantastic during this time.

Visa requirements for Zambia vary depending on your nationality. Many countries can obtain a visa on arrival at the international airports in Zambia, but it's essential to check the specific visa regulations for your country before traveling. Some nationalities may require obtaining a visa in advance from a Zambian embassy or consulate.

Zambia offers various accommodation options for safari-goers. Inside the national parks, you'll find lodges and bush camps, which provide an immersive experience in the heart of the wilderness. Many of these accommodations offer comfortable amenities and excellent opportunities for game viewing. Additionally, in cities and major towns, you'll find hotels and guesthouses that cater to a wide range of budgets.

The official currency of Zambia is the Zambian Kwacha (ZMW). It's recommended to carry some Zambian Kwacha in cash for small purchases and local transactions. For larger expenses, credit cards are generally accepted in hotels, lodges, and some restaurants and shops in urban areas. However, in rural areas and smaller establishments, cash may be more convenient.

Zambia is generally considered safe for tourists, but like any other destination, it's essential to take standard safety precautions. Avoid displaying signs of wealth, keep your belongings secure, and stay informed about the local situation. In some areas, especially around the border regions, it's advisable to check for any travel advisories before planning your trip.

The official language of Zambia is English, which is used in government, education, and media. However, there are over 70 indigenous languages spoken in the country. Some of the major regional languages include Bemba, Nyanja, Tonga, Lozi, and Lunda. Learning a few basic phrases in the local language can be appreciated by the locals and enhance your travel experience.
