7 Facts You Probably didn’t know about Zambia

3. Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It is also the only waterfall in the world with a length of more than a kilometre and a height of more than one hundred metres. It is a site of extreme natural beauty, which is protected by two national parks.

The noise of Victoria Falls can be heard from an almighty distance of 40 kilometres, while the spray from the falling water rises to 400 metres and reaches a distance of 50 kilometres. The nearby forest is incredibly luscious as it receives ‘rain’ from the falls 24 hours a day.

4. Kafue National Park

Kafue national park is the oldest and largest national park in Zambia – it is roughly the same size as Wales, a country in the UK. Found in the centre of western Zambia and covering a massive 22,400 km2, it is largely left untouched by man, with vast areas of the bush remaining completely preserved.

Over 55 different species of animals live in the park, including rare types of antelope, as well as the rare African wild dog. It is also considered to be one of the best places in Africa to see a leopard.
