Zambia is perhaps most famous for the awe inspiring Victoria Falls, however it is fast becoming known as one of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife destinations, with remote corners that offer un-compromised wildlife viewing. The Zambian culture is rich and colourful, and traditional ceremonies can be seen round the country, and offer a fantastic insight into the tribal nature of Zambia. Traditional arts here are skilled and accessible, offering modern artefacts made by traditional routes.
Zambia consists mostly of high plateau, some hills and mountains, and is dissected by river valleys. Zambia’s two major river basins, the Zambezi basin and the Congo basin form havens for wildlife. Zambia’s most famous safari destinations are the famous Luangwa Valley, the Lower Zambezi and Victoria Falls – these areas combine to create one of the ultimate bespoke safari tours in Africa, with very few people for miles around.Show Less
