Welcome to Zambia
'The Real Africa'
The Republic of Zambia is located in the middle of Central Africa. Landlocked between Malawi, Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique and even Botswana. Surrounded by the top African safari destinations, Zambia doesn't get much of the limelight. But it should...
Zambia has been tagged "The Real Africa" With a population almost matching Malawi in a country that is nearly three times the size, Zambia has incredibly large expanses of pure, remote wilderness.
Zambia is home to an array of Wildlife that is unique in its diversity. From the endemic Thornicroft giraffe and the Cookson's wildebeest to species like the shoebill stork. Zambia boasts the largest mammal migration in the world every October to November, the straw colored fruit bat, but also has it's own mini wildebeest migration across Liuwa Plains. At the heart of Zambia is the pioneer of walking safaris, Kafue National Park and one of the largest National Parks in Africa, up from that, the impressive and famous South Luangwa National Park, the "Valley of the leopard".
This vast and wild country is not only known for it's wildlife, it's also neighboring Zimbabwe at the edge of the mighty Victoria Falls, runs the length of the incredible valley for the lower Zambezi river that is teaming with tiger fish and its Capital city is one of the fastest developing cities in Africa.
