Welcome to Zambia

Formerly called Northern Rhodesia as an integral part of Cecil Rhodes’ Cape to Cairo vision, Zambia is in fact steeped in history dating all the way back to the African Stone Age.

However, in many ways the famous Scottish missionary David Livingstone put the country on the European map as he came to the shores of Lake Tanganyika in search of the source of the Nile in the early 19th century.

Whilst Zambia is now one of Africa’s most urbanized countries, much of the country remains wild, underdeveloped and un-spoilt, with a great percentage of land allocated by the government to conservation projects, national parks and game management areas. Many of these parks are home to incredible numbers of Africa’s most-feted wild mammals and extraordinary birdlife.

    Victoria Falls

    Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

    In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.

    The wide, basalt cliff over which the falls thunder, transforms the Zambezi from a placid river into a ferocious torrent cutting through a series of dramatic gorges.

  • Park

    South Luangwa National Park

    Experts have dubbed South Luangwa to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and not without reason; the concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and its oxbow lagoons, is among the most intense in Africa.

    The Luangwa River is the most intact major river system in Africa and is the life-blood of this 9059km2 park. 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 Africa’s 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.

    Kafue National Park

    Found in the center of Western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It covers a massive 22,400 km2.

    First established as a national park in the 1950’s by the legendary Norman Carr, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa.

    Despite its size and prominent location, only two hours drive from Livingstone, it remains little-known and largely unexplored with vast tracts of its virgin bush still untouched. Thanks to its size and variety of habitat types, the Kafue holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife .
