A wide range of activities like the renowned walking safari river rafting bungee into the deep gorge below the Victoria Falls abseiling, canoeing safaris down the Zambezi, River Surfing, excellent Tiger Fishing and breath taking African sunsets cruises are on offer

Zambia beckons to the intrepid and the adventurous – those who want to step off the path and see and feel the real sights, sounds and smell of Africa. That said, the Zambian side of Victoria Falls offers some of the most sophisticated riverside lodges in Africa.

Explorer David Livingstone first saw the awesome glory of the Victoria Falls from what is now Zambia – his memory is enshrined in a statue in the nearby town of Livingstone. Livingstone is experiencing something of a revival and many visitors now prefer to stay in one of the stunning riverside lodges along the Zambian banks of the Zambezi above Victoria Falls.

These are perfectly placed for post-safari relaxation and for visiting the wonder of the world – Victoria Falls. You can also take part in many adventure activities like white water rafting, a bungee jump off Victoria Falls Bridge abseiling, canoeing safaris down the Zambezi, River Surfing excellent Tiger Fishing microlighting and breathtaking African sunsets are on offer. The power of the Zambezi River has carved a zigzag line of gorges over millennia that created this natural wonder that plunges 350 feet. The river also allows travelers to experience close-up game viewing by canoe or motorboat.

Blessed with 17 magnificent waterfalls apart from the spectacular Victoria Falls, Zambia offers tours to 'cascade followers' into the remote undeveloped rural areas where you can get a glimpse of village life. Zambia has the largest water resources in the whole of southern Africa with 5 massive lakes and plentiful rivers offering excellent fishing.

Wildlife Reserves in Zambia offer some of the finest African safaris with a profusion of birds, abundant wildlife, and raw, pulsating wilderness, all in one friendly country. The Luangwa Valley offers a wild and remote safari vacation with experienced guides who have intimate knowledge of the bush. Luangwa is home of the legendary walking safari and you can experience the thrill of Africa under your feet and encounters with animals on their own turf.

The other big advantage of a Zambia safari is that night drives are allowed within Zambia's national parks. The Lower Zambezi National Park lies opposite Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools and offers the same wild and remote big game experience on the banks of the great Zambezi River. Safari lodges along this stretch of the river offer a wonderfully wild location without compromising standards or service.

Other Zambian reserves include Kafue, Lochinvar and Lechwe Plains, all of which contain superb safari lodges and camps in the wildest of settings.

Zambia is also known for its rich, expressive folk art and tribal customs.
