Zambia is a wonderful country, the landscapes are beautiful, the people incredibly friendly and it has vast swathes of unspoilt land; a growing rarity in the modern world. Not only does it boast the rightly revered Victoria Falls (one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World), and the world’s longest lake, Lake Tanganyika, it also contains some of the most spectacular opportunities to observe Africa’s famous wildlife in the many National Parks.
Zambia’s climate is quite pleasant compared to other tropical countries because of its high plateaus which reduce the tendency for extreme heat and humidity. The rainy season runs from December to April, followed by the cool period May to August and finally the dry season which is September to November.
The people of Zambia are what is truly special about this place. We found them to be the friendliest, most welcoming people we have ever met on our many travels and this appears to be a commonly held opinion. With over 70 ethnic groups as well as growing communities of non-Zambian origin, Zambia offers a vibrant and exciting mix of cultures and traditions.
Zambia’s main international airport is Lusaka, though many travellers enter by road through one of Zambia’s 8 bordering countries (Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Angola and The Democratic Republic of Congo).
