Immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage, encounter abundant wildlife on thrilling safaris, and embark on unforgettable walking safaris that showcase the true essence of Africa. Zambia is home to 73 tribes, with the main tribes being Lozi, the Bemba, the Ngoni, Tonga, the Luvale, and the Kaonde. Highlights include the magnificent Victoria Falls which cascades with thunderous might, while South Luangwa National Park offers unparalleled wildlife encounters.
