Zambia is a country dominated by wilderness and an amazing sense of space. Lush river valleys and floodplains offer excellent habitat for a huge range of wildlife species, as do the dense woodlands that cover much of the country. Still relatively unexplored by most visitors to Africa, Zambia conjures images of a bygone era, with massive areas of pristine wilderness still to be fully discovered.

Zambia has 19 national parks, 6 major lakes, more than 20 different tribal groups, and rich animal life.  Zambia is known as the home of game walking which is an incomparable method of enjoying Africa’s flora and fauna. Zambia shares the incredible Victoria Falls with Zimbabwe and the numerous adrenalin activities of the Zambezi River can be enjoyed from both countries.
