Zambia is a vast 750,000 sq km, nearly half the size of Europe. It is landlocked in south-central Africa with a population of approximately 12 million and is one of the least travelled and most rewarding wilderness destinations in Africa. Zambia is the most centrally located country in southern/central Africa, bordering with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania.
Zambia boasts the Kafue, Luangwa and Zambezi rivers and possesses two of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa, the Luangwa Valley and the Kafue National Park. The country has a total of 19 National Parks, abundant with wildlife in the raw wilderness.
This is the land of the legendary African walking safari and the mighty Victoria Falls – one of the largest waterfalls in the world which Zambia shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. Including the Victoria Falls, Zambia has seventeen waterfalls.
In Livingstone, Zambia features as the Continent’s adrenaline-fuelled holiday capital with visitors partaking in a series of white-knuckling adventures such as white water rafting and bungee jumping, on, or over the Zambezi. Therefore the town of Livingstone is emerging as a destination in its own right as it embraces its colonial roots.
Most of the country falls into a plateau region, which has a pleasant climate. Zambia’s elevation on a plateau 1,300 metres above sea level gives it a moderate semi-tropical climate, despite being positioned within tropical latitudes.
The Zambezi and the Luangwa valleys have a hotter and more humid climate and the extreme north has a tropical climate as one reaches the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
