Zambia is an adventurer’s paradise especially if you fancy a canoe or walking safari at Kafue, Lower Zambezi & North, and South Luangwa National Park or sheer adrenalin activities like whitewater rafting, Bungi jumping at Victoria Falls (Livingstone).
Zambia is a large landlocked country which is bordered by Angola in the West, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Tanzania in the north, Malawi in the west, Mozambique & Zimbabwe in the South, and the tips of Namibia and Botswana (also in the South). This makes it a good connecting stop-over for Botswana, the Caprivi Strip, and Zimbabwe.
Acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world to visit; Zambia’s welcoming people live in peace and harmony. It has one of the lowest population-to-land ratios in Africa; with only 10 million people in a country that is half the size of Europe.
Zambia has the largest water resources in the whole of Southern Africa; with 5 massive lakes and rivers offering excellent fishing. The most popular is Lake Kariba; Zambia’s undiscovered Riviera! This is Africa’s largest man-made dam; 226km long and in places up to 40 km wide. It provides considerable electric power to both Zambia and Zimbabwe and supports a thriving commercial fishing industry. The sheer size of it makes one forget it’s a dam and in certain places; it almost feels like an ocean! There are a number of houseboats and accommodations on the banks of the dam.
Tiger fishing is very popular; especially in Lower Zambezi National Park and Lake Kariba.
