This area is host to several unique species and an ideal place for leopard-spotting.
Zambia, in southern Africa, is a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. The country is commonly regarded as one of the most beautiful, friendly, diverse and unspoilt countries on the entire African continent. 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.
It includes advice for the independent traveller. You will learn how to bush camp in comfort, survival techniques for canoe encounters with hippos or crocodiles as well as guidance on all-terrain driving. Furthermore, it includes detailed reviews of lodges, hotels and campsites, plus 51 maps and GPS coordinates. Moreover, Bradt’s Zambia is the essential travel companion for anyone going to this under-explored safari destination.
