  1. White Rhinos

The largest species of rhinoceros, white rhinos were once rare in southern Africa due to poaching. However, in 2010 the Zambia Wildlife Authority relocated four white rhinos from South Africa to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Today, a herd of over 10 lives near Victoria Falls, heavily guarded to avoid further poaching.

  1. Hippos

Hippopotamuses are semiaquatic mammals that spend their days cooling off in rivers. You can spot them munching on grass along the rivers in South Luangwa, and Kafue. It is best to keep your distance since these huge creatures can be territorial in water. If you hear their warning snorts, move away to avoid a powerful charge from their heavy bodies.

  1. African Elephants

The largest species of elephant, African elephants roam the river-heavy National Parks of Zambia including South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi, and Kafue. Perhaps the most endearing giant mammal, elephants live in close matriarchal families similar to humans. The members of the family are so close you’ll rarely see them more than a few steps away from each other.

  1. Zebras

Zebras live in herds of 20 to 100 in the grasslands of most National Parks within Zambia, though they have the heaviest population in South Luangwa. As prey, zebras find safety in large numbers. When standing in large groups, their black and white stripes create an optical illusion to intimidate and confuse potential predators.

  1. Giraffes

The tallest animals in the world, giraffes graze on trees in South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. The subspecies of giraffe, the Thornycroft’s giraffe, has unique markings and are unique to Zambia. Giraffes live in herds of about 20 and use their long, muscular necks to gently eat leaves over four metres above the ground and fight off threats when needed.

  1. Wildebeest

Wildebeest, also called gnu, are antelopes of the genus Connochaetes and native to Eastern and Southern Africa. They belong to the family Bovidae, which includes true antelopes, cattle, goats, sheep, and other even-toed horned ungulates.
