4-Day Taste Of South Luangwa Zambiafrom
At the extreme west, Kalahari sand dominates, while miombo woodland, papyrus swamps and a handful of evergreen forests make up the remaining major flora. The region suffered during southwest Africa’s border conflicts of the 1970s and 80s, and it’s still one of Zambia’s least developed areas. These days its parks are bouncing back fiercely and new tar roads east of the Zambezi are making access significantly easier.
