spectacular Victoria Falls, the country attracts nature lovers

adrenaline rush activities such as river rafting, canoeing
safaris, river surfing and tiger fishing.
Zambia is the land of the legendary African walking safari.
Big game, abundant birdlife and raw, pulsating wilderness are
what visitors can expect to find. The Zambian government has
long recognized the economic importance of its wildernesses and
is acutely aware of environmental concerns: almost one-third of
the country is given over to national parks and game reserves.
First colonized by the British South African Company in 1889, it
was not until 1924, when the company ceded administrative
control to the British Crown, that serious exploitation of the
country's main natural resource, copper, began. Though this
could have made Zambia one of the continent's richest countries,
it is one of the world's poorest.
