National parks in Zambia, Southern Africa.

This is a list of national parks in Zambia. There are nineteen national parks in Zambia, although a few of them are not maintained and so contain no facilities and few animals. Others have high concentrations of animals and are popular with tourists, while two or three are world-famous.
