Why we love Zambia
Child Friendly Environment
With many exclusive lodges in Zambia offering family rooms and private houses it is now easier than ever to visit Zambia with the whole family and create lasting memories. With the best time to visit the national parks coinciding with the summer holidays you won’t have to worry about the children missing school. During this time the climate is cooler as it is the winter months between May and September, this means cooler evenings and less bugs to worry about in the evenings. Many lodges and private houses offer a variety of child friendly activities such as tracking lessons and babysitting can easily be organized with the lodges if parents wish to take part in activities such as bush walks, as there is often an age limit with this type of activity
Travelling with families can be made stress free thanks to charter flights that can be used to hope from the location to location with ease. This freedom to move means families can wake up in the Kafue National Park and be going to sleep overlooking the Victoria Falls. Zambia’s positioning makes it easy to combine other countries into the trip. With direct flights from Lusaka to Johannesburg and Livingstone to Cape Town you can experience the Indian ocean and explore the Garden route with the family.
