Zambia – 122nd Country. To see where I have been so far, check out my map as I count down the final 93 countries on the road to all 193 UN countries. Namibia is my 122nd country.
Landlocked Zambia became an independent nation in 1964 gaining its freedom from the United Kingdom. This nation has over 16 million citizens and shares a border with Zimbabwe and also access to Victoria Falls. The 19th century explorer, David Livingstone, “discovered” Victoria Falls.
I crossed into Zambia on foot. This is a straight forward exercise as the Victoria Falls Bridge connects Zimbabwe to Zambia. You simply check through the respective immigration offices at the end of each side of the bridge. Zambia gives you access to Livingstone Island, which sits perched, teetering over the falls. In fact, you can wade into the falls, and witness the water cascading 300 feet below you.
