Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, huge water bodies and vast open spaces, Zambia offers unforgettable holidays exploring the real Africa.
Zambia offers a range of action activities, from more pedestrian excursions such as guided lion walks to the more adventurous options including white water rafting down the raging rapids of the incredible Zambezi or bungee jumping over the majestic Victoria Falls.
Lake Kariba is Zambia’s undiscovered Riveira ! It offers spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities, water sports or wonderful relaxing holidays or weekends just soaking up the sunshine. The weather here is mostly sunny and fine. It can get quite hot in mid summer, but even mid winter days are warm and the nights are balmy.
Lake Tanganyika is the longest fresh water lake in the world and the second deepest. Its surface area spreads into Zambia, Congo DR, Burundi and Tanzania. Zambia can only claim around 7% of that surface area. It is also said that the lake holds around 18% of the world’s fresh water with around 26 rivers flowing into it! Another reason for its popularity is its water temperature which ranges from 24 to 26 degrees Celsius all- year round!
About 30 % of Zambia’s 752,614 square kilometers is reserved for wildlife. There are 20 national parks and 34 game management areas in the country. South Luangwa, Kafue and Lower Zambezi rank among the finest game parks in the world.
Zambia is one of Africa’s most urbanised countries, with over 44% of the population living in its towns and cities. And as Zambia’s economy continues to grow (at one of the fastest rates in the developing world), it seems this trend will increase in years to come, with more and more poor rural dwellers moving to urban areas, many of which have already seen substantial development since the 1990s.
