The one sight that many visitors to Africa MUST see is the magnificent Victoria Falls, one of the seven famous natural wonders of the world.

Located on the Zambezi River in Zambia, Victoria Falls is over a mile wide, dwarfing Niagara Falls by comparison flood season, over 3 million gallons per second pour covering the falls to the bottom of the abyss, almost 400 feet below!

The falls observed from Knife Edge Footbridge, which spans a narrow ridge of rock between an island facing the falls and the mainland. The bridge allows you to get closer to the falls, and you should carry a raincoat or umbrella with you.

The spray of water will enable you to FEEL this impressive display of nature!


The Luangwa River is precious to wildlife and has played host to families who settled in the area to promote the conservation of this exceptional part of Africa – Luangwa Valley (Garden Of Eden).

The Luangwa family pooling together has enabled the experiences of wildlife and ecology to be explained to the world.

The magic of the Luangwa entails the significant concentrations of Leopards in the area, the rutting and calving of the Impala, the closing and rebirth of the ecosystem, the ebb and flow of the b water level that saturate the land and sustain it along with the records and existence of the families that have been hard at work for 75 years to keep it all collectively.


One of the highest densities of wildlife in Africa is beautiful Zambia. Animals, such as Elephants, are everywhere; it is impossible not to see them. The river lagoons are full of the hippopotamus.
Moreover, so are the giraffe, and herds of buffalo, zebra, and numerous varieties of antelope, waterbuck, impala, kudu, roan, and puku, the best time to find lions is early morning when they usually sunbath resting in family groups. Leopards are also many, but as they are mostly nocturnal animals, it is hard to spot them every day though its the best place to spot the in Africa.

Other animals you will almost definitely see are monkeys, baboons, warthogs, hyenas, and possibly wild dogs.

Another perfect holiday We were a party of eight, most of us on a return trip (last one in 2020 - also with Absolute Zambia Safaris) under the expert guidance of Robert. It was again a holiday without a single complaint. Pickups were reliable and punctual, the David Livingstone resort is perfectly located on the banks of the Zambezi with comfortable beds, sumptuous food, an infinity pool, and an unlimited supply of food and drinks on the silent but spacious sunset cruise. Robert (from Absolute Zambia Safaris) dealt with all our changes, additions, amendments, and cancellations with endless patience and understanding. It was a perfect holiday, we will be back. Thank you Absolute Zambia Safaris.

Amazing five-day trip Absolute Safari organised an amazing five-day trip for us which included 2 nights in Mwanfushi safari lodge and 2 nights by Victoria falls. Everything worked out perfectly and Robert was quick on the email, answering and organising according to our wishes. Our driver Brian was excellent and always on time and the price very reasonable. Can highly recommend.
exciting trip at the Lower zambeji National Park It was a wonderful experience. I came to know about absolute Zambia safari from TripAdvisor only. I contacted them and Robert was very nice and every time he answered my email very promptly. It was my solo trip and good that I decided to be a client of the absolute Zambia safari because they arranged everything for me. I just dropped into the plan. In my game drive, I saw almost every animals available in the lower Zambezi national park. it was my three day two night trip. The place named Kianbi safari challet where I stayed during the trip was very peaceful and lovely. I again wish to visit Zambia and if I go, I will choose the same absolute Zambia Safari group.

Amazing experience!! Robert is very professional and his organization and arrangements exceeded every hope we had with our trip. It was just fabulous!!! We did a 2-week trip around Zambia, what a beautiful country!! Thank you again Robert, you did a wonderful work!!
More than I could have hoped for! I didn't know much about Zambia when we were planning our trip, but I had heard wonderful things about South Luangwa National Park. After reading some reviews, I contacted a few agencies in Zambia to plan our trip. Robert Zgozi from Absolute Zambia Safaris was truly amazing -- the entire experience was so much more than we had expected and everything worked out beautifully. Great properties, unbelievable safaris with knowledgeable guides, excellent and almost too plentiful food, I don't have enough superlatives to describe our visit, but I will certainly call on Robert again when I go back to Zambia!
Véritable Afrique Difficile d'imaginer les éléphants qui passent à coté de votre chalet la nuit? Les hippopotames qui broutent l'herbe devant votre chambre? Les singes qui prennent votre dentrifice si la porte est ouverte? Après plusieurs decennies consacrées à la protection des animaux sauvages (période de braconnage de 1970-1990), la Zambie se met à l'écotourisme avec d' excellents standards de services, nourriture, eau potable et confort de chambre. Des simples comprimés contre le paludisme sont conseillés. Les lodges que nous avons visités prennent soin de supprimer le maximum d'insectes possibles pour que les soirées soient bien sans souci. Robert Zgozi nous a organisé un voyage époustouflant (15j) pendant lequel nous avons vu une bonne dizaine de léopards, une vingtaine de lions et lionnes ainsi que d'innombrables d'autres espèces. Notre voyage a traversé quatre parcs (Kafué, South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi et Mosi Oa Tunya ) avec des guides qui étaient de véritables encylopédies de faune et de flore locaux. Nous avons choisi la saison sèche (septembre) pour voir le maximum d'animaux. Ce parcours nous a permis de faire un crochet à Victoria Falls où nous étions suspendus au dessus des chutes dans le Devils Pool. Adrénaline garantie. Par ailleurs, tous les Zambiens que nous avons rencontrés étaient accueillants et souriants. Ce voyage n'était pas donné mais nous le referions bien un jour. Notre groupe familial de 4 adultes partagent plein de souvenirs ensemble grâce à ce voyage. Beaucoup de transits se font en avion car le pays est très grand. Je déconseille vivement les transits entre parc par voiture. Robert Zgozi est Zambien ; il sait communiquer l'amour et la connaissance approfondie qu'il a de son pays. Nous l'avons trouvé sur le site national "Zambian Tourism", Nous vous conseillons ses service si vous souhaitez un voyage clé en main. Merci Robert Zgozi :) Rob NB: La Zambie est un pays anglophone
Fabulous trip to Sth Luangwa We’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to South Luangwa all organised by Robert Zgozi from Absolute Zambia Safaris. I contacted this company as I read it was Zambian owned and I was very impressed by Robert’s speedy replies to my queries. We stayed in 2 different camps which Robert recommended to suit our budget and we weren’t disappointed. Both camps were everything we’d hoped for. We did a combination of chalets and tents with all meals, game drives and transfers included. Robert actually surprised us twice by meeting us at our Lusaka hotel on arrival in Zambia and our return after the trip. We found Robert to be a very friendly, likeable and professional guy who went above and beyond to make sure our trip went smoothly. You can’t go wrong with this company, we will definitely use them again on our next trip to Zambia.

Experiencing South Luangwa I didn’t know what to expect it being my first time in South Luangwa, it was lovely, all of it (the entire experience!). We stayed at Mfuwe lodge and opted for 3 game drives a day, this doesn’t give you a lot of time for sleeping in but all the fresh air and being in the bush, watching all the animals made us feel so refreshed. And don’t get me started on the food!! Absolute Zambia Safaris gave us exactly what we needed and we enjoyed everything bit of it. Their staff is patient and friendly; they take care of every last detail including a range of options to suit your budget. All in all, it was the true definition of a holiday carefree and stress-free and we most certainly will be going back.
The real zambian agency My family and I have just returned from a trip to Zambia. Before booking, as always, I searched for all the best local travel agencies. My choice was Absolute Zambia Safaris. First of all it is one of the few, if not the only one, that is Zambian-owned. So all the staff know perfectly every single area of the country, from the most aware to the most remote. The owner, Mr. Robert Zgozi, has over ten years of experience in the Zambian tourism industry, having worked for top-tier tourism companies, as well as being a lover of unspoiled nature. Before defining the various stages of the journey, Mr. Robert, like a true friend, advised us both the best areas of the country, the best lodges and resorts, and all flight connections. Having traveled extensively in Africa for more than 10 years, I know perfectly well the difficulties of organizing transfers, of finding the best accommodations for the budget available. Robert and his staff have been able to organize any type of activity with extreme professionalism. The organization has always been perfect. All the staff interested in our trip were always present as soon as we reached an airport, a lodge. We didn't have to think about anything but enjoying the beautiful nature and the people of Zambia. Although our international flight (from Italy) was canceled and rescheduled two days later, putting the entire trip at risk, Mr. Robert was able to help us change the itinerary without missing a single scheduled activity. Incredible! While we were in Lower Zambezi, we suddenly decided to go three days to Victoria Falls. Robert, within two hours, organized all the transfers and the resort, taking care in the meantime to get us refund for the two nights lost in Lusaka. Never before have I been assisted in such a professional and friendly way in my previous travels. Among other things, he could also have organized trips in combination with neighboring countries (Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana), having direct contacts. The surprise? While we were in South Luangwa, he came in person to meet us and find out how the journey was progressing. Incredible! Briefly a note on Zambia. it is truly an incredible country. Its people are so friendly and hospitable that you immediately feel like a genuine Zambian. I never felt any sense of danger. In fact, the country is considered among the safest in the world for travel. Landscapes take your breath away. Nature is majestic. Here you can really see anything: wildogs (herd of 20 specimens with cubs), dozens of leopards and cubs, lions and lionesses, different scenes of lions and leopards hunting, huge herds of hippos, huge herds of elephants, birds of extraordinary beauty, including the crowned crane and secretary bird. One negative note: unfortunately having had to go home and leave this extraordinary country that has given me unforgettable moments that will remain forever etched in my mind and in my heart. So I would recommend both visiting Zambia and doing it with Absolute Zambia Safaris. Have a good trip!
One of the best safari operators Absolute Safaris is one of the best operators I have ever encountered - Robert managed to do an incredible thing and organise my custom 11 days Luangwa trip in Zambia at the shortest possible notice ( literally few days before arrival)! My trip was absolutely wonderful, everything worked perfectly and I loved every moment on the safari. I have had so many wonderful wildlife sightings, and all the camps were in beautiful locations, very comfortable with great service and very professional guiding. Truly one of the best safaris of my life ( I have spent most of it in Africa). My big thanks to Absolute Safaris, for their professionalism and outstanding customer service. Will definitely be back.
