Driving Around Zambia

Zambia offers a superb gateway for vehicle travellers wanting to get off the beaten track. Bordered by Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique and Angola, Zambia lies at the heart of the subcontinent.

Untainted by commercial tourist development. Zambia is a working example of Africa left alone. A big country, uncompromising and challenging….but real…… home to true adventure and quality experiences enhanced by a warm and friendly people.

Depending on where you’re coming from, or where you’re headed, here are suggestions of routes to take to see the best of the East, West, South and Northern regions of the country. This section will be expanded to include more detailed routes soon.
