Zambia is content to offer one of the finest safari destinations, giving guests the option to explore the ‘real Africa’. Great combination of wildlife, water and open spaces in a very safe and picturesque surrounding, Zambia is a place which needs to be visited.
Zambia has the largest water resources in the whole of southern Africa with 5 massive lakes and numerous rivers, offering excellent tiger and fly fishing, canoeing safaris, house boating holidays, first class white water rafting, kayaking and river surfing and daily, spectacular sunsets.
The country is drained by two major river basins: the Zambezi basin in the south and the Congo basin in the north. In the Zambezi basin, there are a number of major rivers flowing wholly or partially through Zambia: the Kabompo, Lungwebungu, Kafue, Luangwa, and the Zambezi itself, which flows through the country in the west and then forms its southern border with Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The Zambezi falls about 100 metres over the 1.6 km wide Victoria Falls, located in the south-west corner of the country, subsequently flowing into Lake Kariba.
Northern and Southern Luangwa are, the best known National Parks in Zambia. The concentration of Game around the Luangwa River and its ox bow lagoons is among the most intense in Africa. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The now famous ‘walking safari’ originated in this park and is still one of the finest ways to experience this pristine wilderness first hand. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness ranging from dry, bare bushveld in the winter to a lush green wonderland in the summer months. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species. Only recently, the Northern side of the park has been opened to tourists and delivers therefore a very wild and remote experience.
