Home of the walking safari
Zambia is a land locked country of unsurpassed beauty, part home to the world famous mist and thunder of the majestic Victoria Falls. The country is located between the southern rim of the Congo Basin and the Zambezi River and shares the borders with Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. One of Zambia’s most prominent features is the mighty Zambezi River which courses through the craggy landscape, across planes, through valleys, down gorges, taking the great plunge at Victoria Falls, spreading out to form the holiday and fishing paradise of Lake Kariba, before eventually opening into the Indian Ocean some 2,500km away. Together with abundant wildlife all of this combines to allow for spectacular safaris and unforgettable adventure holidays.
