Zambia


Resting midway between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn in the ‘Goldilocks Zone,’ where it’s not too hot and not too cold, Zambia is considered Africa’s diamond in the rough. Surrounded by eight nations, this landlocked country boasts some of the continents best wildlife parks and most beautiful natural scenery. While some home to some of Africa’s major attractions, such as the mighty Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba and the Lower Zambezi National Park, this status is shared with Zimbabwe. Wildlife-lovers delight in the broad diversity of fauna and flora in the region, and anglers arrive from all over the world to try their luck on the mighty Zambezi River, attempting to land a toothy tiger fish or the rare, giant vundu. Likewise, avid birders flock to Zambia for a glimpse of its fabulous array of avian species.

History
The territory of Northern Rhodesia was administered by the British-owned South Africa Company from 1891 until it was taken over by the United Kingdom in 1923. During the 1920s and 1930s, advances in mining spurred development and immigration, and upon independence in 1964, the country’s name was changed to Zambia.

Accommodation

Zambia has a wide range of accommodation options, from fabulously luxurious riverside lodges, five-star Zambia hotels, stylish tented safari camps, rustic and remote bush camps. For more traditional accomodation, choose from a number of homely guesthouses and B&B’s, self-catering chalets, backpackers and campsites. One can even stay on a houseboat, or in a mud hut in a rural village for the ultimate experience of true Zambian village life and fare.

Activities

Long celebrated for its peaceful history, rich, fertile land and the incredible natural wonders of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River, Zambia has an extensive range of activities and exciting experiences to enjoy.

With a well-established reputation as one of Africa’s top safari destinations, the country’s lush and sparsely populated rural landscapes are home to a vast array of fauna and flora, with over 30% of the country’s land allocated to National Parks.

Visit some of the world’s best game parks, including the expansive Kafue National Park, or the South Luangwa National Park, and experience some of the many safari activities available. Enjoy a canoeing safari along the game-rich shores of the Lower Zambezi, or follow in the footsteps of the pioneers into the Zambian interior on a unique walking safari through North Luangwa National Park.
