A vast and largely unspoilt land, it is home to 19 National Parks, the Victoria Falls (which it shares with Zimbabwe), and some breath-taking scenery – including 17 waterfalls, and 5 lakes. It is world renowned for the walking safaris in the South Luangwa National Park, and its abundance of wildlife in general.
