Big and beautiful country of the southern Africa, constituted by a uniform succession of plateaus with heights generally included between 1.000 and 1.300 meters msl, where the continental tropical temperature is mitigated by the effects of the altitude.
Big part of the territory is covered by the savannah, that a time was owning an exceptional faunal wealth, that today is preserved in wide areas protected which include 11 nature reserves.
Among them the most famous is the Kafue National Park already instituted in 1951 to North of Livingstone, with a surface of about 22.500 Kmq it is one among the widest ones of the Earth and it is rich of elephants, buffalos, leopards, lions, antelopes and of 400 kind of birds.
The Zambezi River, which for a long tract marks the border with Zimbabwe, forms on this limit the spectacular Victory Waterfalls.
