SOUTHERN AFRICA Zambia
With a third of the country being made up of national parks, Zambia is the ideal location for photographers who want to get up close and personal with nature. Bordering Zimbabwe, Zambia also gives you the chance to get a glimpse of Victoria Falls and the man-made Lake Kariba. Here are just some of the reasons to add Zambia to your list of photography destinations:
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park
Home to some of the most stunning sections of the legendary Victoria Falls, this national park also boasts the second-largest single cataract in the world. Wildlife fans will jump at the chance to catch glimpses of zebra, Angolan giraffes, and even some elephants. The Knife-Edge Bridge is a stunning sight, in addition to offering some great shots of the falls.
A Zambian national monument, Mwela Rocks requires a little bit of hiking to get to the main attraction. However, archaeology and history buffs will marvel at the many caves, which are filled with over 700 rock paintings created by the Twa tribe. The nearby Chishimba Falls offers great shots for those who didn’t get their fill with Victoria Falls.
South Luangwa National Park
Make sure to pack some hiking boots if you plan to visit this stunning park. With walking safaris, it is home to giraffes, hippos, elephants, and buffalo. It also provides stunning shots of the savannah plains and the gorgeous Miombo Woods.
Blue Lagoon National Park
We weren’t joking when we mentioned just how much of Zambia plays host to national parks. Sitting a little over 60 miles outside Lusaka, this massive floodplain offers great shots in both the dry and rainy seasons. It’s also the ideal location for birdwatchers to photograph some rare birds, including the harlequin quail, laughing dove, and many more.
