Zambia's unique appeal is its rough edge - with little road signage, long distances between major towns in Zambia makes it one big adventure to travel here.  What makes it worthwhile is the stunning landscapes and the concentration and variety of wildlife.  South Luangwa, is one of the best national parks on the continent, and the huge Kafue National Park embodies the country's riches.  And then there is Victoria Falls, the dazzling waterfall that is one of the greatest wonders of Africa.

The country is made up almost entirely of Bantu-speaking people. Empire builder Cecil John Rhodes obtained mining concessions in 1889 from King Lewanika of the Barotse and sent settlers to the area soon thereafter. The region was ruled by the British South Africa Company, which Rhodes established, until 1924, when the British government took over the administration.

From 1953 to 1964, Northern Rhodesia was federated with Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and Nyasaland (now Malawi) in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. On October 24, 1964, Northern Rhodesia became the independent nation of Zambia.
