Archived entries for  Zambia

Zambia’s premier attraction is undoubtedly Victoria Falls, which it shares with neighbouring Zimbabwe. You can stay in either country but most travelers head to Zambia these days. One of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Falls are simply spectacular and when in full flood are the largest falling curtain of water in the world. And you can enjoy an array of activities in the ‘Adrenalin Capital’ of Africa. Visit the Zambia section on our website.

Birding Big Day 2012

This Saturday is Birding Big Day 2012 in South Africa.

Victoria Falls – Explore The Smoke That Thunders

Microlight over the mighty Victoria Falls

Scottish missionary and well-known explorer, David Livingstone stood on the small island in the middle of the falls – now known as ‘Livingstone Island’ in Zambia – and looked on at the roaring curtain of water bustling over the cliff. ‘Victoria Falls’, he named it, in honour of his Queen. We thought we’d take a closer look ourselves at ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – the indigenous name for the falls, literally meaning the ‘Smoke that Thunders’.

Sian’s Zambian Experience – daunting but worth it!

Sian Visits Zambia

I was fortunate enough to join Katja from Sanctuary Retreats on a trip to South Luangwa in Zambia. We enjoyed one night at Chichele Presidential Lodge, popped into Puku Ridge and then spent two nights at Zebra Plains. Travelling from Cape Town is hectic. I would certainly not recommend it. Leaving from Johannesburg will lighten the load a bit but, even easier from Livingstone as you can fly direct into Lusaka and then a quick flight onto Mfuwe.

Devil's Pools attracts adrenaline junkies annually

An infinity pool with a difference I have to say… I’m not sure I would do it. I’m getting the creeps just writing about it. It’s called Devil’s Pool and for some madman reason, people love to hang half off the very edge of it or even dance and do back flips right by the […]
