Zambia is a landlocked country in southern Africa. Its neighboring countries are Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. The name is derived from the river Zambezi, which rises in the north of Zambia, it is dammed in Lake Kariba and shows with the Victoria Falls a fascinating natural spectacle.
Zambia is by far the most underrated country in Southern Africa! Despite first-class national parks that offer impressive wildlife viewing, good infrastructure and a unique nature, only a few visitors travel to Zambia. Safaris in Zambia are unique. Thanks to the few visitors and the pristine parks, you feel alone in the bush and can observe the wildlife in peace during game drives.
Besides visiting the majestic Victoria Falls, the fascination of Zambia travel comes from visiting its national parks. Probably best known is South Luangwa National Park, established in 1972 and named for its location across the Luangwa River.
