Home of the walking safari, intense game viewing in the South Luangwa, the thundering Victoria Falls, the mighty Zambezi River. and a staggering array of wildlife, Zambia is something of a hidden gem.

"The smells and sounds of the bush; feeling the power of big game; that tingling on your spine… this is the home of the walking safari and there really is nothing like it!"

A massive country with a small population, Zambia has a real sense of space and its attractions are enormous. Take the majestic Victoria Falls, for example: known as ‘the smoke that thunders’ (stand by them and you’ll understand why!), a million litres of water per second plunge 100 metres over these astonishing falls to create huge clouds of spray seen over 50 miles away. Together with 16 other awe-inspiring waterfalls, they make up a breathtaking tour for ‘cascade followers’.

The Zambezi River is just as impressive too; its lush valleys and floodplains attract a huge range of wildlife and over 750 bird species. The reserves here – including the game-rich South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi, the wilder North Luangwa and the huge Kafue National Parks – are among the world’s finest. They offer a real ‘Out of Africa’ experience, especially if you join a river or walking safari (a Zambian invention).

And if the wildlife isn’t wild enough for you, the town of Livingstone (near Victoria Falls) is fast becoming Africa’s adventure capital, with extreme sports such as white water rafting and kayaking, gorge swinging and bungee jumping on offer in the nearby gorges.
