This section starts in the capital city of Malawi from where it's a pleasant day's ride west into Zambia, a country named after the fabled Zambezi River.

Presently, Zambia has huge wilderness parks off the beaten track and relatively little tourism. If your ideal trip is one with few tourists, fantastic scenery, friendly people, and lots of cycling, then the 'Zone' can't be beat.

Once in Zambia you will ride across thinly populated countrysides, along the Great East Road, passing villages of huts that bespeak the humble subsistence farming existence of the local people. After crossing the Luangwa River bridge, the tour heads for Lusaka, Zambia's bustling capital city, where one can explore a nearby mall and the National University, or just kick back poolside.

From Lusaka to Livingstone the roads are flatter and fast, passing through several larger towns with well stocked shops. At our campsite in Livingstone, you can arrange your Vic Falls outings, from a basic tour with drenching jaw-dropping viewpoints, to the world's 3rd highest bungee jump off the Zambezi River bridge, helicopter rides, and white water rafting. The people, the adventures, and the natural wonder of Victoria Falls make for an amazing conclusion to and experience in the 'Zone.'
