Responsible tourism in Zambia

A community project in Zambia is a showcase for how luxury tourism operators can help local communities

Political turmoil in Zimbabwe, riots in South Africa and tribal wars in Kenya has created an opportunity for politically stable Zambia to become one of Africa's hottest new tourist destinations. 

Zambia shares one of the world's largest waterfalls with Zimbabwe. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Victoria Falls is a breathtaking naturally phenomena created as the Zambezi River plunges 108 metres into a wide chasm. 

Scottish missionary David Livingstone, who named the falls in 1855, said "scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight". 

Along the river is the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, which offers visitors the chance to spot giraffe, zebra, warthog, buffalo and antelope but the park lacks the big cats that prowl the South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi. It hasn't stopped luxury operators from opening high-end wilderness lodges along the Zambezi River near Victoria Falls. The majority are boutique lodges which cater for small numbers.
