Tour Our Nation


Our Wild Life

Zambia’s tourism is nature based and the majority of Zambia’s biodiversity is contained within this extensive wildlife estate which accounts for about 80% of Zambia’s Tourism activities. The 20 National Parks, bird sanctuary and the Mighty Victoria Falls are some of the country’s most sought after tourist sites. Zambia has incredible wildlife, a natural heritage with many unique species of wild game. The superb wild animals are found in pristine wilderness ensuring that the finest safaris are available. There is a variety of activities such as bird-watching and safari tours to choose from and local travel agencies and hotels can assist with the organization of these activities.



Our Culture

Cultural diversity is embraced in Zambia in the vast blend of values, norms and traditions of more than 70 ethnically diverse people. Institutions to protect and promote Zambia’s culture were created, including the National Heritage Conservation Commission. Private museums were also founded and cultural villages were established to promote the expression of artistic talents. There are more than 20 annual traditional ceremonies in Zambia, manifesting customs, social life, rituals, oral history, material and spiritual culture. If you have the opportunity to attend one, it is well worthwhile to do so. They provide a valuable insight to a traditional culture that has been passed down from generation to generation.

Our Landscape

Whilst Zambia is now one of Africa’s most urbanised countries, much of the country remains wild with a great percentage of land allocated to conservation projects, national parks and game management areas. Many of these parks are home to incredible numbers of Africa’s most-feted wild mammals and extraordinary birdlife. Zambia’s remaining open rural areas are, for the most part, rich and fertile, with Zambia’s consistently warm tropical climate made less oppressive by the altitude of many parts of the country. One of the most water rich countries in Africa, Zambia has 5 vast lakes, 3 major rivers, 17 waterfalls and various wetland areas. Zambia occupies a central position in the sub-Saharan region, which is the summer-rainfall belt of southern tropical Africa. Within the region the natural vegetation is largely determined by altitude, rainfall and soils. Zambia has three seasons – cool and dry from May to August, hot and dry from September to November, and warm and wet from December to April.
