Zambia is the undiscovered treasure trove of Africa. It shelters extraordinary natural beauty and is one of the most pristine and unspoiled wilderness areas on the continent. It is easy to see why Zambia boasts one of the largest areas of land under protection as a national park in Africa.
But it is the thundering miracle of the Victoria Falls that draws most visitors to this gentle and peaceful country. Less frequented than Zimbabwe, many travellers prefer to see the falls from the Zambian side and some claim the views are even more spectacular.
Named after the mighty Zambezi River, Zambia is the home of the walking safari. Zambia is also famed for its rivers, which feed a wide range of habitats, as well as the magnificent Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world.
The town of Livingstone is a charming and pleasant tourist destination, with many restaurants and shopping opportunities. It offers numerous activities in and around Victoria Falls, including various game viewing adventures.
