Camping in Zambia

Camping is a popular choice for many travelers in Zambia. Fall asleep under the stars and wake up to cool morning air with the sunrise softly streaming into your tent. There is nothing quite like being out in the wild, staying in a tent whilst listening to birds singing and lions growling in the distance. With many lovely places for camping, this country offers you great opportunities to experience pure, clean and untouched environments. All campsites have the extras that make camping convenient and comfortable including sparkling showers and bathrooms. As a camper, you will enjoy quiet family-friendly and secure campsites jotted around the country.

Camping in Zambia is a great chance to get up close and personal with nature in a safe, yet enjoyable setting. Choose between a guided or self-drive safari for an exciting experience, one that you will enjoy, no matter what your comfort level and preferences are. Adventure camping is a popular choice for outdoor enthusiasts and budget travelers, especially if you want to set up camp outside of the designated areas. Whether you are looking for a place to relax in a natural setting, the best destination for family holidays, or a laid-back naturist paradise, Zambia has you covered for a memorable camping holiday.

Camping in Zambia allows you to participate in various activities including:

  • Early morning and sun downer game drives
  • Walking safaris
  • River safaris by boat
  • Bird watching
  • Fishing

Some important tips to follow when going camping:

  • Maintain hygiene
  • Carry a survival kit
  • Beware of getting lost
  • Avoid bugs
  • Leave nothing at the campsite after leaving
  • Create or find a shelter before sunset

Zambia also gives you an option to camp in special campsites out in the wild, with no fences or boundaries. You will be in an area in the middle of the park with wildlife all around. If you are camping in these remote areas, you must ensure that you go prepared, and bring into camp everything that you will need including tents, sleeping bags, flashlights, firewood, food and drinks, cutlery and insect repellent. When camping in these remote areas, you must try as much as possible not to disturb the environment. Ensure that you camp in designated areas, and never camp near waterholes. It is also important to keep an eye out for animal trails and to avoid camping in the paths.

Camping is one of the best ways to truly get close to nature, and when you are camping in Zambia, the closer you can get, the better. However, facilities vary from campsite to campsite, some campsites have fully kitted kitchens, hot showers, and electricity; other campsites leave you with nothing but earth, wind and fire. Choose your campsite according to how adventurous you are feeling.
