Why You Need to Book a Safari in Zambia

Zambia is one of the safest countries in Africa that shares a border with Zimbabwe, which gives you the opportunity to make your safari span two countries. It’s amazing wildlife, spectacular plains, gorgeous sunsets, and brilliant bodies of water will make this trip one you’ll remember forever. If an African safari has been on your bucket list, now’s the time to plan one with African Safari Booking.

How to Reach Zambia

The fastest way to reach Zambia is by plane. You can expect to carve out at least 24 hours for your travel due to connecting flights in the UAE, North America, and South Africa that usually have some long layovers. The best way to make your travel experience comfortable is to join an airline club if you notice your layovers last for several hours. These private lounges will give you a more refreshing downtime between flights where you can catch a nap and good meal.
