Zambia is a rugged, landlocked country in South-Central African with diverse wildlife, countless national parks and private safari areas. Along Zambia’s border with Zimbabwe lies a true wonder of the world, the Victoria Falls – known in the native language as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which translates to “the Smoke that Thunders” – plunging a misty 108m into its narrow Batoka Gorge. Spanning the Zambezi River just below the Victoria Falls is the Victoria Falls Bridge, which offers a spectacular viewpoint of the breathtaking scenery.
The country’s main draw is its comparative lack of tourism, which results in safaris that are significantly cheaper and less crowded than elsewhere in Southern and East Africa.
