The rewards of travelling in Zambia are those of exploring remote, mesmerising wilderness as full of an astonishing diversity of wildlife as any part of Southern Africa. Where one day you can canoe down a wide, placid river and the next raft through the raging rapids near world-famous Victoria Falls.
Three great rivers, the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi, flow through Zambia, defining both its geography and the rhythms of life for many of its people. South Luangwa National Park is known to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world.
The now famous 'walking safari' originated in this Park and is still one of the finest ways to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness first-hand.
The Victoria Falls, 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - the smoke that thunders - is one of the world's most spectacular plunges. The 2km wide Zambezi River drops more than 100m into a steeply walled gorge, called one of the World’s seven natural wonders.
This is the heart of Africa where four nations meet; Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana.
