There are 19 National Parks and 34 Game Management Areas covering over 22.4 million hectares.
Although much of tourism in Zambia is concentrated in a limited number of national parks, such as the South Luangwa, Kafue, Lower Zambezi, Musi-o-Tunya and Kasanka, the rest of the parks provide considerable potential for future tourism development.
Zambia’s wilderness is characterised by the vastness of unexploited areas, such as the rift valleys of the Luangwa and Zambezi Rivers and their escarpments; mountain highlands, such as the Nyika and Mafinga; vast wetlands in the Bangweulu, Kafue and Zambezi flood plains; and the fact that most wilderness occurs in protected areas, showing the real parts of natural Africa.
In addition to national parks, a number of areas in Zambia have been declared national heritage sites or monuments. These areas include 145 geological sites and 70 geomorphological heritage sites.
The Kundalila Falls and the source of the Zambezi River have been listed as ecological sites.
Furthermore, Zambia has 73 tribes with diverse cultural traditions which include a variety of annual traditional ceremonies.
