- Named after the Zambezi River, Zambia is a landlocked country consisting of high plateau, deeply entrenched by the Zambezi and its tributaries. Victoria Falls is found midway along the course of the Zambezi at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
- The official language of Zambia is English, yet the most commonly spoken language in Zambia is Bemba. About 90% of the population fall into 9 major ethnolinguistic groups: the Nyanja-Chewa; Bemba; Tonga; Tumbuka; Lunda; Luvale; Kaonde; Nkoya; and Lozi.
- The most popular time for game viewing in Zambia is during the dry season (May to October) as the conditions draw wildlife to the scarce water sources. The rainy season (November to April), known as the ‘Emerald Season’, transforms into a lush haven perfect for seeing baby animals and birdwatching.

Paddle along the calm stretches of the Zambezi spotting hippo whilst keeping an eye out for the many species of birdlife, such as the African fish eagle.
South Luangwa is the best-known park in Zambia. Wildlife spotting is best near the river where Elephants descend the banks to drink and hippo laze in their pools.
Enormous herds of elephant, some up to 100 strong, are often seen along the edge of the river in the Lower Zambezi National Park.
Livingstone’s proximity to the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls makes it a popular base for travellers to the area with many fun and exciting leisure activities available.
Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It remains little-known and largely unexplored yet holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife.
