ZAMBIA

Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, huge bodies of water and vast open spaces, Zambia offers an unforgettable holiday exploring the real Africa. Acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world to visit, Zambia's welcoming people live in peace and harmony.

Here in the warm heart of Africa the country boasts some of the continent’s best wildlife parks and shares some of the region’s major highlights: Victoria Falls in Southwestern Zambia, Lake Kariba as well as Kafue National Park & the Busanga Plains.

With some of the wildest and most remote game areas on the continent, a remarkably low population in a massive country, Zambia has an aura of Africa undiscovered. Combine an adventure to Victoria Falls with a few days in the Busanga Plains, enjoying tiger and fly fishing or just viewing the abundant wildlife and over 400 species of birds.
One can also go on a walking safari with an armed guard – an excellent way to see both the larger and smaller animals at a relaxed pace. It is possible to track the Rhino and watch them from a safe distance. Just across the border lie numerous other National Parks in Botswana and Zimbabwe, making Mosi-oa-Tunya a great starting point for a multi-country Safari into Big-Five territory.

SNEAK PEEK - ZAMBIA

FACTS


Area : Zambia, in Southern Africa, is a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. On its border with Zimbabwe are the famed Victoria Falls, plunging a misty 108m into narrow Batoka Gorge. Spanning the Zambezi River just below the falls is Victoria Falls Bridge, a spectacular viewpoint.
Population : 13 million
Language : English (official); major vernaculars include Bemba, Kaonda, Lozi, Lunda, Luvale, Nyanja, Tonga, and about 70 other indigenous languages.
Capital : Lusaka
Currency : Zambian kwacha (ZMW)

 

 

Weather


Climate : The general height of the land gives Zambia a more pleasant climate than experienced in most tropical countries. There are three seasons – cool and dry from May to August, hot and dry from September to November, and warm and wet from December to April. Only in the Valleys of the Zambezi and Luangwa is there excessive heat, particularly in October and, in the wet season, high humidity. In the warm wet season, frequent heavy showers and thunderstorms occur, followed by spells of bright sunshine.

When to Travel : The best time for game viewing in Zambia is during the dry season, May to October, when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the wet season, from November to April, dirt roads in the parks can become impassable and most parks and camps close down.

HOW TO GET THERE


Zambia's International Airports : Lusaka International Airport (LUN) is Zambia's main airport. There's a smaller airport in Livingstone (LVI) which is used for regional flights.
Getting to Zambia : Most international visitors will fly into Lusaka on British Air, Air France, South African Airways, Kenyan Airways and Ethiopian Airways. Livingstone Airport is served by charter flights and a few scheduled flights (mostly from South Africa and Botswana).

 

 

POINTS OF INTEREST


Victoria Falls : - known by the local people as Mosi-oa-tunya - "The smoke that thunders". The Falls, discovered by David Livingstone in 1885 and named after his Queen, are the result of the mighty Zambezi River tumbling to a depth of 300 feet over a basalt fault line a mile wide. They are one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
