Officially known as the Republic of Zambia, Zambia is a country in south-central Africa. It is a country blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, huge water bodies such as the mighty Zambezi River, and vast open spaces. Zambia is acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world. The many National Parks offer great opportunities for observing Africa’s plains game and predators, whilst bustling urban areas offer a taste of eclectic Zambian culture. Seventeen magnificent waterfalls, apart from the spectacular Victoria Falls, provide 'cascade followers' an adventure into the remote undeveloped rural areas where a taste of village life can be experienced.
