Zambia is the home for the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the 7 wonders of the world and the largest water fall in the world, Kariba Dam (one of the largest man-made lakes in the world); and the Kalambo Falls (one of the deepest falls in the world).
Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall on the planet – one million liters plunges down the Zambezi gorge every second and a trip to Zambia would not be complete without visiting this sublime natural wonder. Livingstone, on the Zambian side, is now a tourism Mecca catering to backpackers and luxury-seekers alike, and adventure seekers can choose from a menu of options to get their hearts pumping including a bridge bungee jump, ‘swing’ and ‘slide’, whitewater rafting, abseiling and river boarding
The best time of the year to visit the falls is between July and September, when the Zambezi River is aplomb with water. In November and December, the falls are almost dry and look like a canyon. Heavy rainfall fills the Zambezi between January and May, and it’s difficult to see the falls through a wall of mist created by falling water.
Zambia boasts of 19 National Parks, with one of the largest in the world (Kafue National Park); and 34 game management areas and 23 million hectares devoted to the conservation of a spectacular variety of wild animals and bird species.
It has one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa. Zambia has a rich cultural heritage and therefore has a number of cultural sites that could be visited. It holds a number of traditional ceremonies including the Kuomboka (in the Western Province); Ncwala (in the Eastern Province); Likumbi Lyamize (in the North Western Province); Shimunenga (in the Southern Province) and Mutomboko (in Luapula Province).
