Destination Information

Zambia is a landlocked country and shares its borders with Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Angola, and The Democratic Republic of the Congo. Zambia shares the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls - two of the region's major tourist highlights with Zimbabwe. Described by many as "the Real Africa", Zambia has retained the Africa of old.

Victoria Falls
Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800's as 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the Smoke that Thunders'.

Victoria Falls is the adventure capital of Africa and for the adrenaline junkies; they can bungee jump, white water rafting, abseiling, river boarding, jet boating, and micro light flights. Other activities include tiger fishing, game viewing, horse safaris, Zambezi River cruises, helicopter flights, and cultural experiences.

South Luangwa National Park
Experts have dubbed South Luangwa as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and for good reason. The concentration of game around the Luangwa River and it's ox bow lagoons is among the most prolific in Africa. The Luangwa River is the most intact major river system in Africa and is the life blood of the park's 9050km2. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife birds and vegetation. The now famous 'walking safari' originated in this park and is still one of the finest ways to experience this pristine wilderness first hand. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species.

Kafue National Park
Found in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia's national parks covering a massive 22500 Km Sq. Despite its size and prominent location, it remains little known and largely unexplored.

Lower Zambezi
The Park lies opposite the famous Mana Pools Reserve in Zimbabwe, so the whole area on both sides of the Zambezi River is a massive wildlife sanctuary. The Lower Zambezi National Park covers an area of 4092 square kilometers, but most of the game is concentrated along the valley floor. Enormous herds of elephant are often seen at the rivers edge. 'Island hopping' buffalo and waterbuck are common. The park also hosts good populations of lion and leopard. Fish Eagle population is excellent and the park has plenty of predators.
