Home of the mighty Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi river, breath-taking lakes and wetlands, a profusion of bird and wildlife, Zambia is acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world to visit.

With its varied terrain, ranging from floodplain's, riverine forest, mountains and swamps, Zambia offers the trophy hunter a diversity of habitats and species. A distinct feature of hunting in Zambia is the zoning of game management areas around national parks. This allows game to move freely between the parks and the zoned hunting areas, which in conducive to a continuous supply of trophy animals. These areas are excellent for lion, leopard, buffalo, kudu, roan, water buck and numerous other species.
From the beauty of the Zambezi and Luangwa river, to the ruggedness of the Muchinga escarpment and the vastness of the Bangweulu Swamps (which supports herds of Black Lechwe, Tsessebe and the elusive Sititunga), Zambia is truly a hunters paradise.
The hunting is challenging and exciting, offering over 35 different species of game. So, if you are into real hunting, then this is the place to be.
