Remote Lodges In Zambia
Zambia has one aspect in bucket loads: wild and remote areas, areas that have seen little to no human interference in centuries. With famed National Parks like the Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa, North Luangwa, Kafue, West Lunga, Liuwa Plains, Kasanka and much more further north on offer, one is spoilt for choice when it comes to remote accommodation options.
The list below of remote and wild lodges all offer up fantastic wildlife and birdlife experiences that are all as far away from humanity as one can get when in Zambia.
And now, for the fun part, getting to these lodges can be a challenge at the best of times as they are so remote and a fair amount of effort goes into the planning. Road transfers take longer, but one can spot wildlife all the route, this is also the cheaper option, fly-in options are available, and with the shorter travelling time, one can maximise one's time on the ground, but this does come at a cost. Either way, getting there is half the fun.
