Welcome to Zambia

Zambia is a landlocked country in southern Africa, with a population of less than 15 million people.

The beautiful country of Zambia opens up like Pandora’s box and you enter to find one of the most spectacular scenes in the world. A blatant display of nature’s wonders through the amazing wildlife, birds and array of fishes.

Accredited as one of the safest places to visit in the world; it has one of the best game parks and has the biggest water resource in Africa comprising of many rivers (including the Zambezi River), 5 lakes and the majestic Victoria Falls that it shares with Zimbabwe.

Riveting sunsets, seventeen waterfalls that offer numerous adrenaline-pumping activities, thrilling safaris and many interesting traditional festivals if you meet one at the time of your travel. All these and more make Zambia a perfect holiday destination.
