Zambia is a peaceful, landlocked country in central southern Africa, sharing one of the world’s largest waterfalls, Victoria Falls, with neighbouring Zimbabwe, on the mighty Zambezi River. Victoria Falls, Mosi-oa-Tunya (“the smoke that thunders”) is one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition to the Falls, which are a major attraction, a journey to Zambia offers excellent fishing, walking safaris, night drive safaris, a high concentration of leopard, and amazing birdlife.
In the Victoria Falls area, the town of Livingstone has continued to develop, achieving worldwide fame as an adventure capital. Here travelers can experience bungee jumping, grade 5 white water rafting, micro-lighting over the Falls, rhino tracking in the Mosi-oa-Tunya park, tiger fishing, and river safaris, or the more gentle sunset excursions on the Zambezi where hippo, crocodile and elephant are regularly seen.
Experts have dubbed South Luangwa as one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, as the concentration of game around the Luangwa River, and its ox bow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa. The now famous walking safari originated in this park by Norman Carr, and is still one of the finest ways to experience this pristine wilderness and abundance of animal and bird species first hand.
Kafue is Zambias oldest park and by far the largest. Spread over 22 400 square kilometres, it is the second largest national park in the world. The Park is still a raw and diverse slice of African wilderness with excellent game viewing, birdwatching and fishing opportunities. From the astounding Busanga Plains in the North-western section of the Park – one of Zambia’s most significant and untouched wetland resources – to the tree-choked wilderness and the lush dambos of the south, fed by the emerald green Lunga, Lufupa and Kafue Rivers, the park sustains huge herds of a great diversity of wildlife, as well as fishing opportunities.
