Welcome to the Zambezi Book Company. We are online publishers specialising in the natural and human history of the Victoria Falls and Zambezi River. We publish our titles in partnership with Amazon CreateSpace online publishing, making our books available in print to order online through Amazon.
Our first title, 'Sun, Steel and Spray - A History of the Victoria Falls Bridge', researched and written by Peter Roberts, was originally published and distributed in the Falls in 2011 by the Victoria Falls Bridge Company. Our fully revised and extended second edition was published on Amazon in July 2016.
Following the success of this initial publication, Peter was commissioned by the Jafuta Foundation to research and write a detailed history of the Victoria Falls Hotel. The first edition of 'Corridors Through Time - A History of the Victoria Falls Hotel' was published and distributed in the Falls in late 2015 in a deluxe special edition. Our second edition was also published on Amazon in July 2016.
Published exclusively on Amazon in August 2017 'Footsteps Through Time - A History of Travel and Tourism to the Victoria Falls' details the development of the Victoria Falls as a global tourism attraction, from early days of explorers and missionaries through the arrival of the railway, birth of global air travel and development as a modern tourist destination.
We are pleased to announce our next title, 'Life and Death at the Old Drift, Victoria Falls 1898-1905', due for publication in early 2018.
