The source of the mighty Zambezi River is found in the north western region of Zambia. From here the waters flow south, then south east over a flat basalt plateau before crashing over the Victoria Falls, known by the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya meaning “The Smoke that Thunders”. The country also boasts with some of Africa’s finest wildlife reserves such as North Luangwa, South Luangwa and the Kafue National Park. These reserves are teeming with animals and are home to hundreds of bird species.
