Zambia is one of Southern Africa’s landlocked countries, sharing its borders with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Angola. The landscape can be described as flat terrain that rises to a plateau of 8,000 ft. in the east and the climate of Zambia is generally very pleasant. The capital of Zambia is Lusaka and other cities include Kitwe, Ndola, Livingstone and Kabwe.

At the border between Livingstone, Zambia, and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, visitors enjoy the sights of the incredible Victoria Falls and the beauty of the great Zambezi River. The river is Africa’s greatest waterway, with extensive rapids and long streams which sustain hundreds of species of wildlife.

Zambia is rich in culture and the population is made up of more than 70 different ethnic groups. Some of the ethnic groups are small and only two of these groups are big enough to constitute at least 10% of the population. The majority of the Zambian population is made up of the Bantu-speaking clan. Zambia’s cultural diversity is another reason that makes Zambia one of the great African destinations to be visited.

Kafue National Park

Zambia’s oldest park is also the country’s largest. Proclaimed in 1950 and covering 22,400 km², Kafue National Park’s game viewing, bird watching and fishing are simply superb. Although only two hours drive from Livingstone, Kafue National Park remains relatively untouched and unexplored – perfect for a secluded getaway. Large quantities of wildlife are sustained by the life giving habitats of grassland plains, woodland forests and lush wetland systems. The Park boasts an astonishing diversity of antelope - more than anywhere else in Africa – including the rare blue and yellow-backed duiker, sitatunga and lechwe. Kafue is also renowned for it’s leopard population, which are frequently seen on night-drives, and one of the largest populations of Wild Dog in Africa.

Livingstone

Situated on the Zambian side of the spectacular Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe’s border is on the other side), the charming colonial town of Livingstone offers excellent accommodation facilities and boasts numerous adrenaline activities. Named after the legendary missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone - the first European to discover, name and tell the rest of world about the mighty Victoria Falls - the town of Livingstone is the ideal base from which to explore the magnificent falls and the game-rich surrounding National Parks. It is the main gateway into the region with access via the Livingstone Airport and is only 6.2 miles from Victoria Falls.

South Luangwa

With a reputation as one of the best places to view game in the whole of Africa, the South Luangwa region in Zambia is enjoying ever-increasing popularity. The National Park lifeblood is the Luangwa River that sustains over 400 species of birds and some 60 animal species, including all of the Big Five plus lesser-spotted animals such as genets, civets, servals and hyenas. While the region is on the rise, visitor numbers are still comparatively less than better known regions in Southern Africa, so guests enjoy a sense of privacy and seclusion.
