On Launched The Visit Zambia 2005 Campaign!

Why the Visit Zambia 2005 Campaign?

About 150 years ago, on November 16 in 1855, the Scottish explorer Dr David Livingstone "discovered" the Victoria Falls which he named after Queen Victoria. 50 years later, in 1905, the nearby city of Livingstone was established in honour of David Livingstone. That’s about 100 years ago!

So the Visit Zambia 2005! campaign is a duet cerebration! 150 years for the Victoria Falls and 100 years, a centenary for Livingstone town. These two best-kept secrets, the uniquely different events, will come of age in 2005


Parks in Zambia are Strategically Positioned

That’s why the Zambia National Tourist Board has put the Visit Zambia 2005 campaign in TOP gear. So discover why Zambia is Africa’s best-kept secret. Savor it and make the secret yours! Remember that the Victoria Falls is the Pride of Zambia and Livingstone town is southern Africa’s Adventure Centre.

The Victoria Falls - See the ever present rainbow

Why a visit to Victoria Falls ? Locally the Victoria Falls is known as the Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders.” It is also considered the largest curtain of falling water. With it’s dimensions of 1,700 meters (5,100 feet) long and a 111-meter (300 feet) drop, the Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the mighty Zambezi River, that borders Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is a place of legend, romance and myth. Most visitors agree that the Zambian side gives a far better view of the Victoria Falls. What with the 1,200 meters (3600 feet) of the 1,700 meters being in Zambia and all visible.

At Songwe Point the food is cooked in traditional utensils and on fire wood. Not on electric cookers! And you get to smell the fire. As for the lighting, it's provided by lanterns, and of course, no telephones. It's life in a typical village except for the comfort and personal attention that will spoil you. This is the hallmark of the "Visit Zambia 2005!"
