This 12 Day South Africa and Zambia brings you with the variety of activities in the National parks for both of the two countries and suites you well especially when on luxury leisure

South African National Parks is the body responsible for managing South Africa’s national parks. S.A parks was  formed in 1926, and currently manages 19 parks consisting of over 73,000 hectares, about 6% of the total area of South Africa and this is where you find National Park containing significant numbers of all of the big 5 game species

About 30 % of Zambia’s 752,614 square kilometers is reserved for wildlife. There are 20 national parks and 34 game management areas in the country.  South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi rank among the finest game parks in the world.

Luambe, and Lukusuzi Liuwa Plain, West  Lunga, Sioma Ngwezi, and  Nyika Plateau have substantial wildlife but are still undeveloped. Mosi-oa-Tunya, near Victoria Falls, is regarded as a Zoological park as it has a well-managed population of antelope, elephants, giraffe and rhino, but does not have any predators.

Isangano, Lavushi Manda, Lusenga  Plain, and Mweru Wantipa have never had management or facilities and have little wildlife but are still worth a visit by intrepid explorers and bird lovers. The newest park to be proclaimed is Lusaka National Park, just outside the capital, which opened to the public in June 2015.
