The Western Province of Zambia is the area dominated by the Zambezi River, in an area formerly known as the colonial Barotseland.
The area has a number of river confluences that extend from the Zambezi River and the most significant feature is the Ngonye Falls. With abundant water supply in the region, especially during the rainy season, vegetation in the Western Province of Zambia flourishes in forms of grasslands, forests and woodlands. Moving away from the Zambezi, the Western Province meets an extension of the Kalahari Desert which boasts undulating sand dunes, lagoons and pans that are worth seeing.
The Western Province also boasts a fantastic range of water sports including fishing due to its position in the vicinity of the Zambezi River and its tributaries. If you are keen on discovering culture in the area, the Kuomboka ceremony and the annual Kazanga ceremony are held in this province, in the Kaoma District. Western Province accommodation is a little limited but provides pleasant and comfortable places to stay. With a number of guest lodges and fishing camps, accommodation in Western Province makes a perfect base to explore the region.
