If you are looking for an adventurous holiday off the beaten path, the African country of Zambia could provide you with an experience of a lifetime. With a laid-back attitude and friendly locals, Zambia is home to a dazzling array of animal species that can be observed in their natural habitats in one of the country’s game reserves. The country is also home to the spectacular Victoria Falls, where you can bask in the African sunshine and witness the magnificent sight of water cascading from the cliffs to the riverbed below from dizzying heights.
