With forests, wetlands and the famous Victoria Falls, Zambia is a destination filled with culture, beauty and of course adventure.
The local culture is one that thrives amongst the singing, eating and Kafue surroundings. The many vibrant small towns scattered across the country make for an incredible enriching experience, but further inland you will find the heart of the Zambian wildlife, The Kafue National Park.
Living off the luscious green plains, the park's elephants live comfortably in their beautiful home. Buffalo can also be found in large herds further south as well as the odd leopard-spotted during a night drive. The area experiences seasonal rains that allow for the environment to flourish every year just after April.
Hot Air ballooning is quite a popular tourist attraction all over the world, but this experience of floating above The Kafue National Park is something else. Watching giraffe graze and stroll across the Busanga Plains while the sun sets on the horizon, is what sounds like a scene from The Lion King.
Many suggest leaving pre-dawn for a float across the Zambian sky, is the perfect time as the air is cool and it gives one enough time to travel to the launch site as it is quite a distance. Of course, such a tour is weather dependent but options include champagne breakfasts and free flights for those who stay for three nights at its lodges.
The remoteness of this beautiful destination is what keeps it a rare and raw find. Over the years adventuring to more unexplored and unique destinations is what not only makes travelling the most valuable experience you can buy, but also the most satisfying.
