At a time when commercialisation seems to have tightened its grip on most of the world, Zambia remains true to its roots. This is the real Africa, with all the charm, beauty and occasional challenges that this entails.
In Zambia, mother nature is queen. From the thundering cascades of Victoria Falls to the untouched bush of the South Luangwa, the little-explored Bangweulu Swamps to the wild Lower Zambezi, the country is a tribute to the awe-inspiring diversity of the natural world and a wildlife lover’s dream.
The country gained its independence from the British in 1964. While English is still the official national language, Zambia’s remoteness and sense of identity has ensured that traditional culture remains strong. Ancient ceremonies are still observed among the different tribal groups, and Zambians are well known for their artistic skills using local ceramics and traditional textile designs.
