Home of the Victoria Falls, Zambia offers a truly authentic African holiday experience, where the only thing that gets spoiled is you. The depth of her cultures, the drama of her landscapes and wildlife plus the delightful and peaceful people – all of this is closer than you think.
The country lies in the heart of Southern Africa, 10 to 18 degrees south of the equator and is bordered by 8 countries. One overriding impression strikes visitors as they travel around Zambia – the country’s sheer size. Lying in the tropical belt of southern Africa, it covers 752,614 square kilometers / 290,586 square miles (an area the size of Germany combined with Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Hungary).
Zambia is endowed with rich tourism resources. The more you explore this naturally beautiful country the more you realise how much this unexploited African country has to offer. Venture into the wilderness, you will find a landscape with captivating reminders of the past such as ancient rock art, burial sites and small villages of thatched roof huts that have been in the same area since the iron age.
With a total human population of 18 million (2019 estimate), Zambia is sparsely populated with more than 70 ethnic groups, many of them Bantu-speaking. Zambia’s ethnic diversity results in rich and colorful cultures, each upheld and celebrated and uniquely in remembrance of their ancestral age.
