Zambia is a landlocked Southern African country bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, and Angola.
With unspoiled landscapes of indigenous flora and fauna as well as the kindness of local communities, it is in short, an ideal safari destination.
Did you know that Zambia has been voted the safest country on the continent?
Zambia boasts mighty rivers, five huge lakes and 17 waterfalls, including Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the natural world.
Khoisans inhabited the area of modern Zambia until 300 AD, when advanced groups migrated to the area and displaced them.
The earliest European to visit the area was Francisco de Lacerda in the late 1700s.
With over 70 ethnic groups, Zambian Culture is highly diverse.
Before the colonial days, Zambia’s different ethnic groups lived in their own communities, each with their own culture.
Much of that has changed with urban sprawl and influence from western culture.
The country advocates wildlife-based tourism as a vehicle for rural development and livelihoods for local communities.
Zambia plays a critical role in the quest to protect Africa’s last remaining pristine tracts of wildlife habitat.
The Thornicroft giraffe, which is also known as the Rhodesian giraffe, resides only in the South Luangwa National Park.
This is the oldest and largest national park in Zambia, located in the Western part of the country.
This was recently listed as the world’s first carbon neutral park, which means that it completely offsets its greenhouse gas emissions generated from tourism activities.
