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 see the wildlife without sharing the experience with many others is a privilege that's hard to find these days.

Zambia is a diverse nation comprised of myriad tribes, each of which speaks its own language, in addition to one of the seven official languages, including English. The Zambians are a greatly happy and friendly people who welcome visitors to their beautiful home.
