More On Zambia

Zambia is fed and shaped by three great rivers, bordered by three massive lakes and big, big skies. Zambia beckons to the intrepid, the adventurous - those who want to step off the conveyor belt of mass tourism.

The legendary David Livingstone first saw the awesome glory of the Victoria Falls from Zambia. His memory is enshrined in the nearby town of Livingstone and his heart is buried in this beautiful land. And at the heart of Zambia lies the modern and vibrant capital city Lusaka.

See the astonishing wildlife of Luangwa Valley, home of the legendary walking safari; the graceful lechwe antelope filling the vast plains of Busanga and Bangweulu in their tens of thousands; the annual wildebeest migration of the Liuwa Plains which rivals the Serengeti; the white-water rafting frenzy of the Zambezi River; the adrenaline choked bungi jump off Victoria Falls Bridge; the limitless expanse of lakes Kariba and Tanganyika, fishing, diving, houseboating, skiing and paddling, canoeing, birding and wildlife safaris par excellence.
