This land-locked country shares its borders with Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Due to its accessibility, Zambia makes an ideal country for onward travel. The landscape is diverse, incorporating swamps and wetlands, tropical grasslands and mountain ranges. Zambia also lays claim to three of Africa's most beautiful rivers: the Luangwa, the Kafue and the mighty Zambezi.
