Zambia is an exciting land , part of what was once called “darkest Africa”, the land in which Livingstone died and a land of mighty waters. Zambia is fed and shaped by three great rivers, bordered by three massive lakes and big, big skies. Zambia beckons to the intrepid, the adventurous - those who want to step off the conveyor belt of mass tourism. In the north lies Lake Tanganyika, second deepest lake in the world, where the waters at the bottom of the lake never mix with the upper, and in consequence may have lain there for twenty million years. In the south is Lake Kariba, a vast lake created by what was once the largest ever man-made dam. The lake contains one of the best game fish available to the angler, the tiger fish, whose strength and courage make for an exhilarating contest. Yet Zambia’s most famous “mighty waters” are those shared with Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls, known by the local Kololo tribe, as “the smoke that thunders”. T he immense scale of the Victoria Falls is absolutely breathtaking: at the height of the wet-season five hundred and fifty million cubic meters of Zambezi water roar over the edge of a basalt cliff into a dramatic gorge over one hundred meters below.
Zambia is deservedly famous for its diversity of wildlife. Both the Lower Zambezi National Park and South Luangwa National Park are ideal for game viewing. Come to Zambia and experience the finest African safaris available. See the astonishing wildlife of Luangwa Valley, home of the legendary walking safari; the graceful lechwe antelope filling the vast plains of Busanga and Bangweulu in their tens of thousands; the annual wildebeest migration of the Liuwa Plains which rivals the Serengeti; the white-water rafting frenzy of the Zambezi River ; the adrenaline choked bungi jump off Victoria Falls Bridge; the limitless expanse of lakes Kariba and Tanganyika, fishing, diving, house-boating, skiing and paddling, canoeing, birding and wildlife safaris par excellence.
