AFRICANGLOBE – Recognized as one of the safest countries to visit in Africa, Zambia is home to people who live in peace and harmony. Country of legendary African walking safari, Zambia has the largest waterfall in the world.
The Zambezi, the wild river, the swamps, the lakes and the breathtaking profusion of birds are just few of the abundant wildlife and unspoiled nature one has the pleasure to experience in this country.
Providing seven waterfalls including the spectacular Victoria Falls, Zambia offers amazing destinations filled with emotion and beautiful scenery.Wildlife is superb and Zambian lodges and safari organizers are able to offer visitors the best possible safari they can ever dream of.
There are a wide range of exciting activities including the legendary walking safari in the middle of nature, rafting at international level, bungee jumping into the gorges below Victoria Falls, swimming, climbing, Canoeing on the Zambezi, surfing, excellent fishing and breathtaking African sunsets.
The Victoria Falls is one of the world’s biggest waterfalls; it is also a home to one of the most amazing natural waterborne phenomenon or as the locals in Zambia call it – The Devil’s Pool. The Pool is right on the edge of the falls. When the river flow is at a low level but still pretty awesome and massive (generally from September until December), a rock wall on the edge of the 100 meter falls slows down the current and prevents the brave from going overboard though it is definitely not a safe place to stand.
Some deaths have occurred, in that place, as a result of people that slipped over the rock barrier. Still, there is one professional guide company that is allowed to take people to this pool, charging tourists a relatively small fee, and anyone can get to the Devil’s Pool through a little hike on Livingston Island.
Primarily known for Victoria Falls, Zambia has many other advantages: the country has several national parks and nature reserves which are home to large colonies of elephants, lions, leopards and giraffes. Zambia offers so many opportunities for safaris, far from major parks widely popular in South Africa or Namibia.
The Zambian capital, Lusaka, is a vibrant city, which allows you to quickly soak up the culture. Take a trip to Zambia if you are looking for a magical and peaceful destination away from major tourist trail.
