why

Zambia?

Zambia has been named as one of ‘the’ countries to visit in 2018, it is often referred to as “real Africa” and for some time played second fiddle to more well-known and famed safari destinations like Botswana, Kenya and Tanzania.

Zambia is vast and unspoilt and boasts remote wilderness areas with incredible diversity with highly defined season where animal and birdlife thrives in vast quantities.

    • Population: 16.5 million (2017)
    • Area: 752,618 km2 (38th largest country by area)
    • Capital: Lusaka
