Zambia is the land of the impressive Victoria Falls, the mighty Zambezi, abundant wildlife, prolific birdlife and true wilderness. All this complimented by friendly people and un-commercialized culture all in a country that is acknowledged as the safest place in the world to visit.
The awe-inspiring beauty and the immense size and power of the water passing over the Falls has made it one of the natural wonders of the world and a highlight of any Zambia holiday.
Known by the locals as the 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the Smoke that Thunders' as the 546 million cubic meters of water that falls per minute throws up a spray high into the sky that can be seen from miles away.
This area is well known as the 'adventure capital' offering adrenalin-packed activities on and around the Falls and the Zambezi River on both the Zimbabwe and Zambia sides.
The Zambezi is Africa's fourth largest River system and the biggest in Zambia , after the Nile, Zaire and Niger Rivers. It runs through six countries on its journey from central Africa to the Indian Ocean. Its unique value is that it is less developed than others in terms of human settlement and many areas along its banks enjoy protected wilderness status.
The River's beauty has attracted tourists from all over the world and it provides power, food, pleasure and transport for many and a home for untold numbers of wildlife along its journey.
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! It is the Zambia undiscovered Riviera offering spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities, water sports or wonderful relaxing holidays or weekends just soaking up the sunshine.
