We're taking you to Zambia on a holiday and tailormade tour! A trip to Zambia is recommended for those who love unexplored destinations since the country offers wild and untouched natural landscapes.

Zambia is considered "the real unexplored gem of Africa", because it boasts incomparable natural environments, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and endemic animals. Stroll along the paths of its protected areas, where flora and fauna are safeguarded and enjoy the magical atmosphere and the stress of your everyday life will be nothing more than a distant memory. Your tour will certainly include the charming Victoria Falls, considered one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the whole world and declared World Heritage Site by Unesco. You can then set off for the ultimate wild nature adventure sailing along mighty Zambezi River, spotting wildlife on the banks, or trying your hand at fishing like the locals.

Do not miss the chance for a safari in search of the Big 5, the giants of the savannah, in majestic Luangwa National Park or Zambezi National Park.

Why visit Zambia

How is travelling to Zambia? It is a trip across an unexplored country, untouched by mass tourism, where nature still reigns wild and supreme. If you decide to take a tour in Zambia, you probably wish to see the mighty Victoria Falls, the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, declared Unesco Heritage Site. But do not stop at the falls, which are certainly a sensational sight: this land has many gems to offer.

Zambia is a country in South-Central Africa, with Lusaka as a capital city: its territory is landlocked and mostly consists of plateaus. The western part is characterized by vast floodplains, usually inundated during the wet season, which goes from October to April. The eastern part is covered by the savannah, where the climate is more arid, while the northern area is covered by equatorial rainforest, along the mighty river Zambezi, forming Victoria Falls, the widest waterfalls in the world. On the other hand, the Congo basin contains Lake Tanganyika, whose tributary is river Kalambo, on the border with Tanzania, originating Kalambo Falls, the second highest waterfalls in Africa after Tugela in South Africa.
