Zambia consists mostly of an immense plateau some 3 000m above sea level, and boasts the Zambezi, Kafue and Luangwa rivers – as well as one of the largest waterfalls in the world, the Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Offering some of the wildest and most remote game areas, Zambia is a friendly and peaceful country. Its low population density means that it retains an authentic sense of undiscovered Africa.
The main focus of our Zambian operations is the linking of guests from Livingstone or Lusaka up into the Kafue National Park – the largest park in Zambia and second largest in Africa.
Seasonal rains dictate that on average the camps in Zambia are only open for five months each year, although Wilderness Air Zambia operates year round.
Wilderness Air flights in Zambia are operated by our key alliance operator Staravia. This family-run business has been in operation for over 30 years and has built up an enviable reputation for professional, personal and friendly service. Whilst Wilderness Air does not operate the aircraft, Wilderness Air Zambia is still involved in the day-to-day flying operations of Wilderness guests and all Staravia operations adhere to our safety and environmental rules.
