Zambia's magnificent forests, sweeping plains, and wild rivers offer an assortment of waterfalls, cascades, rapids, cataracts and flumes. With 20 national parks and 34 game reserves, Zambia’s abundant game viewing opportunities are remarkable. Distances between the parks are huge so flying between them is the ideal way to make the most of your visit. Zambia and Zimbabwe share a border, including Victoria Falls, but both sides have their own unique appeal.
- Zambia takes its name from the Zambia River. This landlocked country mainly consists of a high plateau broken in the north east by the Luangwa River, and in the west by the Kafue River. Both are tributaries of the Zambezi.
- The official language of Zambia is English, yet the most commonly spoken language in Zambia is Bemba, a Bantu language. About 90% of the population fall into 9 major ethnolinguistic groups: the Nyanja-Chewa; Bemba; Tonga; Tumbuka; Lunda; Luvale; Kaonde; Nkoya; and Lozi.
- The best time for game viewing in Zambia is during the dry season (May to October). The rainy season (November to April) is commonly called the ‘Emerald Season’ because of the rich colours.

South Luangwa is Zambia's best-known park. Much of the wildlife is found near the river with Elephants descending the banks to drink and hippo lazing in their pools.
Enormous herds of elephant, some up to 100 strong, are often seen along the edge of the river in the Lower Zambezi National Park.
Livingstone’s proximity to the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls makes it a popular base for travellers to the area with many fun and exciting leisure activities available.
