At the crossroads of Central, Southern and Eastern Africa lies this landlocked country, with some of its neighbours being DRC to the North, Tanzania to the North East, Malawi to the East, Mozambique to the South East, Zimbabwe and Botswana to the South, Namibia to the South West and Angola to the West.
Sometimes surprisingly pitched as second to the more 'iconic' options of the Maasai Mara in Kenya, Serengeti in Tanzania and the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Zambia is exceptional in its safari offering, boasting abundant wildlife, huge water bodies and vast open spaces, offering unforgettable holidays.
Zambia is also known as being the home of the original walking safari, large herds of elephant and a large population of the African Wild dog can be found here.
Victoria falls, in the southern part of the country, is located on the border of Zimbabwe.
