Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa and is home of legendary African safaris, Victoria Falls, the wild Zambezi River, abundant wildlife and raw wilderness.

At 1.7 kilometers wide and up to 100 meters high they are not be the tallest or widest falls in the world, but many consider them to be the most spectacular.
