Zambia
Zambia is regarded by many as one of the last true wildernesses and this continent's greatest secret.

Visitor numbers are small and her vast areas of pristine wilderness have remained unchanged for millennia. The opportunity to explore these areas and to see the wildlife that inhabits them without having to share the experience with too many others is a privilege hard to find these days.

Zambia is made up of many different tribes who speak many different languages The official language is English and the overriding attitude is one of great happiness and friendliness.
