Not one but three mighty rivers flow through Zambia; the Kafue, Luangwa and Zambezi define the landscapes and give the country, its people and wildlife their lifeblood, creating the rhythms of life. The Zambezi thunders over the Batoka Gorge creating the world-famous 'Mosi-oa-Tuna' Smoke That Thunders, better known as Victoria Falls, straddling the border with Zimbabwe. But the Zambian experience of the mighty Falls is just as breath-taking, with the added thrill of being just off the beaten track, and nearby Livingstone makes for Zambia's adventure capital, with bungee jumping, white water rafting and more on offer. Best known for walking safaris, Zambia also boasts Africa's second largest national park, and is home to some of the most pristine and unspoilt wildlife in Africa, promising undiscovered and unique wildlife encounters which can only be experienced here. As one of Africa's undiscovered treasures, your Zambian adventure will be all the more special and memorable.
