The Lower Zambezi, in South Eastern Zambia is considered to be a world heritage site and one of the most pristine areas of wilderness left in Africa. The Lower Zambezi is made up of woodland savannah and riverside terrain that is rich not only in Africas’game and bird life but also offers the chance to view some of Africas’ most well known water mamals and predators too.
Wild and untouched, this is the ‘real Africa’ and home of the walking Safari. Victoria Falls Kafue and the famous Luangwa Valley are some of the major tourist highlights. If you’re out to experience the ‘real’ Africa, Zambia is that diamond in the rough. The country boasts some of the continent’s best wildlife parks, and shares (with Zimbabwe) some of the region’s major highlights: Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba as well as the Lower Zambezi National Park. It is also an angler’s dream, with fishermen hailing from all over the world coming to try their luck on the mighty Zambezi River with the hopes of landing a tigerfish or the rare, giant vundu. Avid birders also flock to Zambia to glimpse its fabulous diversity of birds, most notably Chaplin’s barbets.
