Zambia Travel Guide
Mosi-oa-Tunya. The smoke that thunders. Zambia's Kololo tribe best describes the world’s most awe-inspiring and largest waterfall plummeting 354 feet into a mile-long, ravaged chasm. Breathtaking views of Victoria Falls take center stage in Zambia in a dazzling spectrum of natural beauty that rises from the Zambezi River basins. At the heart of Zambia's other geological wonders are the ancient waters of Lake Tanganyika, man-made Lake Kariba, and the hot springs of Kapishya in North Luangwa National Park—refuges for increasingly endangered indigenous wildlife.
