Zambia – Rivers run through it!

Zambians boast that about 40% of all of Africa’s water flows through Zambia  and it certainly has a lot to offer.

This includes the sources of the mighty Zambezi River, also called “God’s Highway”

Zambia was once called ‘Northern Rhodesia’, but became the fully independent country of Zambia in 1964.  Now approximately 17 000 000 people call Zambia home.

We love to visit Zambia, especially Kasanka National Park where we can see the millions of huge fruit bats that have arrived from all over Central Africa on their annual Bat Migration.  They come to Zambia to gorge themselves on fruit and have their babies.

One of the biggest Wildebeest Migrations in Africa also happens Liuwa Plains National Park. Not only that but Zambia still has some of the last preserved African hardwood forests.

Most of Zambia’s people live in Lusaka the capital. That means we have most of the country to ourselves while touring  the wild parts of Zambia. There are many National Parks full of wildlife and the famous Victoria Falls are found in the South on the border with Zimbabwe.

Most Commonwealth countries don’t need visas except Australia, Britain, Canada and New Zealand so please check here if you need a visa. The currency used in Zambia is called Kwacha and currently 10 Kwacha is worth 1 USD.
