The Land of the legendary African walking safari, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River, abundant wildlife, and raw wilderness, all in one stunning, amazingly friendly country.
Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, with a tropical climate; geologically structured mainly by high plateaus, some hills and mountains, dissected by river valleys. Zambia neighbors: the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, located in the south-central part of Zambia, and it is the only modern city to be found in this otherwise uncontaminated and authentic African country.
Another sign of civilization you could come across during your tour in Zambia is Livingstone, a small urban center, close to the amazing and world renowned Victoria Falls.
All the other built-up areas are so far from the main touristic destinations that don’t deserve to be mentioned here.
The rest of the country is pure, pristine, uncontaminated genuine Africa, with lots of colored and typical villages nestled along the main roads, with thatched huts and children playing around everywhere. With an area of 752,000 km², the country is slightly larger than twice the size of Germany or slightly larger than Texas.
The territory of Northern Rhodesia was administered by the South Africa Company from 1891 till the takeover by the UK in 1923. During the 1920s and 1930s, mining exploitation spurred development and immigration. The name was eventually changed to Zambia upon independence, in 1964.
Known as one of the safest countries in Africa, Zambia, with its National Parks, waterfalls and a plethora of different habitats (from savanna to thick bush, from swamps to open plains), gives you the opportunity to discover a wide variety of landscapes and wildlife diversity, undeniably unique in the world.
A true paradise both for mammals and birds lovers.
After too many years of indiscriminate poaching and utter wildlife depletion, the flora and fauna are currently so well protected that the number of animals has been constantly increasing for some time, while the “true Africa” atmosphere has been unspoiled over time. “True Africa” may sound like an overly used, cliché term, but this country is one of the very few that still deserves to be called so; in the warm Heart of Africa, you will enjoy some of the best safari experience ever.
Zambia is obviously not just Victoria Falls, and taking into consideration that about 30% of its territory is reserved for wildlife you will easily get the picture. There are 20 national parks and 34 game management areas in the country. South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi rank among the finest game parks in the whole world, with some hidden gems like Liuwa Plains, Kasanka and Bangweulu Swamps that have stunning wildlife but are still mostly unknown to mainstream tourism ( therefore, surprisingly enough, you might end up being the only visitor of the Park! That’s one of a kind experience! )
