About Zambia

Zambia is the real home for the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the seven wonders of the world and the largest waterfall in the world. Zambia, in southern Africa, is a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. On its border with Zimbabwe is famed Victoria Falls – indigenously called Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “Smoke that Thunders” – plunging a misty 108m into narrow Batoka Gorge. Spanning the Zambezi River just below the falls is Victoria Falls Bridge, a spectacular viewpoint. Zambia is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time, one hour ahead of Central European Time, seven hours ahead of Eastern USA time and ten hours ahead of Western USA time.

What our guests say about us

“Wow - truly a once in a lifetime experience. (Big cat walk)” One of the best and most memorable experiences of my life. Truly amazing to hear about their 3 step rehabilitation programme on a species that is sadly dwindling in numbers quickly, paticularly in Zambia. Truly incredible experience and the animals are so beautiful and well trained, you can tell they are trained not to be cuddly pets - beaten or drugged. They are trained to respond well in the wild and to be able to teach their young as they would in the wild. Would 1000% reccomend this to anyone - and the guides were so great - just felt way too quick !!!”
