Zambia is a big invitation for people, who would like to experience the real, the “raw” Africa. For this, you need time, respect and patience. But the resulting experience is a magical scenery and unforgettable safaris. National Parks like South Luangwa, North Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and many more are rich in wildlife. In their plains one can find all types of antelopes, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, hyena, lion, leopard, rhino and in the waters again crocodiles and hippos. The Bangweulu or Barotse wetlands boast a rich birdlife, including the famous “Shoebill” (Balaeniceps rex). Tracking this elusive bird while walking through the swamplands is a fascinating experience.
One day you can canoe on one of the rivers, the next day white water rafting on the Zambezi or then again, explore old cave paintings made by the Khoisan. Even if Zambia is not yet a top tourist destination doesn´t mean it will bore you.
This land-locked country has the Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Angola as its neighbours. Most of the country lies on a plateau, dotted by hills and mountains, which reach an altitude of 2339m. The highest point is in the Mafinga Hills, close to the Malawian border. The sub-tropical climate in combination with its mountains, plains and rivers created a very diverse and rich fauna and flora. Rivers like the Zambezi, Kafue or Luangwa divided the country´s plateau into deep valleys and escarpments with idyllic waterfalls and lakes. In the west, the famous Kalahari touches Zambia, making its scenery even more diverse and stunning.
Experience Zambia like a piece of real Africa.
