Zambia is off the beaten trail in many ways, and it is a great place for solo adventurers. It’s safe, people are friendly, and there is a large variety of extraordinary safari options available. Most of the country sits on an elevated plateau that serves as the drain into which the Zambezi and Congo rivers emerge. This gives the country a wealth of incredible eco systems all buzzing with wildlife.
Zambians are known for their hospitality and are very friendly towards visitors. The populous country is a thrive of cultural activity, and visitors are dazzled by vibrant colours and local customs. The main touristic areas includes Livingstone in the south. Kafue National Park also lies to the south of the capital Lusaka. To the East of Lusaka lies the Lower Zambezi National Park – a dazzling national reserve that sits just above Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools Park. Directly to the north one can find the prime spots of South Luangwa and North Luangwa National parks. This still only represents a small part of the country with the entire Copperbelt stretching up north towards the Congo and Tanzania.
