A Guide to your Safari holiday in Zambia

Zambia is home to some truly spectacular scenery and is an amazing wildlife safari destination. From Victoria Falls in the south – one of the natural 7 Wonders of the World – to the vast Luangwa Valley in the north - home to one of the greatest collections of wildlife in the world including leopard, lion, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, hippo and more than 400 species of birds - it is easy to see why this country is fast becoming a popular holiday destination.  Somehow, however, it  still remains untouched by mass commercialisation.

Pygmy Kingfisher© Norman Carr SafarisA Bit More about the Country

Zambia is home to a population of 13.2 million people, and given it's size - over 290,500 square miles (so larger than France) - this means that the entire country is quite sparsely populated.  Zambia is renowned for its friendly hospitality, and visitors are welcomed with a true sense of warmth and honesty.  It is also one of the safest countries in Southern Africa, due to its political and economic stability. 

There are over 70 ethnic groups within Zambia, but the 7 major tribes are Lozi, Bemba, Luvale, Nyanja, Tonga, Lunda and the Kaonde.  The official language is English

The capital is Lusaka, although many visitors will start or end their trip by flying into or out of Livingstone, in the very south of the country, and enjoying a few nights stay to marvel at the wonderful Victoria Falls.

Malaria is prevalent throughout the country, so visitors are advised to consult their doctor prior to travel regarding taking suitable malarial precautions. 

Zambia is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) all year round. 

The currency is the Kwacha, which is made up of 100 ngwees, but most of the lodges will quote and charge in US Dollars (US$).
