Popular with adventure-seekers and nature lovers, Zambia boasts many of the requisite African highlights – parks and reserves filled with big game and abundant birdlife cover almost a third of the country – plus a few magnificent extras. Offering some of the hairiest whitewater on the planet, the mighty Zambezi River draws both adrenaline junkies and madmen to test their mettle. The river drops over one of the world's most impressive waterfalls at Victoria Falls; it was the legendary Dr Livingstone who named them after the then Queen of England. From here, choices are many: set out on walking safari, try river surfing or you can even bungee jump within earshot of the falls.
