Places to visit in Zambia

For many Africa visitors, Zambia is simply an add-on destination, a few days in Livingstone and Victoria Falls added to a safari in Kruger National Park or a road trip along South Africa's Garden Route. But to come to Zambia and to see only the Falls would be to do it a disservice. Head beyond the thundering cascades and you'll find a diverse land of wildlife-rich national parks, high-end safari lodges, tranquil rivers and some of the best guided walking safaris in all of Africa. So go on, stay a little longer and discover all that Zambia has to offer. Here's what to see:

Mosi-oa-Tunya

Bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Named Mosi-oa-Tunya, or ‘the Smoke that Thunders’ after the plume of spray that emits as the Zambezi River plummets 108 metres into Victoria Falls Gorge, this raging torrent of water ranks up there with the Kruger and the pyramids as one of Africa’s top sights.

You’re spoilt for choice of how to explore Victoria Falls: our favourites include walking the viewing platforms or flying over it in a helicopter or microlight.

Gateway to Victoria Falls

Located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, Livingstone combines the Edwardian architecture of a former British colonial city with the laid-back charm of a quiet South African town. Its proximity to Victoria Falls makes it a popular spot for thrill seekers to tackle bungee jumping, white-water rafting, abseiling and quad biking. Those looking for a quieter stay can shop for handmade wares and sample local flavours in town. Don't miss the Livingstone Museum, honouring British explorer David Livingstone, after whom the town is named.

Wildlife galore

Crossed by the gentle waters of the Luangwa River, South Luangwa National Park is one of the prime wildlife viewing areas in all of Africa. Set off on safari and look out for elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, lion and leopard on the plains, and head down to the water’s edge for hippos and crocodiles.

South Luangwa National Park is the ideal place to try a walking safari. The guides here are second to none, and if you’ve always wanted to get that little bit closer to the plants and insects, this is the way to do it.

Safari central

One of Africa’s largest safari parks, as well as one of its most wildlife rich, Kafue National Park is home to elephants, zebra, mongoose, porcupine, buffalo and wildebeest, as well as a huge variety of birdlife. The cats are here too, with both lion and leopard often spotted. Better yet, as a lesser-known national park, Kafue receives fewer visitors than its more famous counterparts, so you’ll practically have the place to yourself. Set off on a 4x4 or boat safari and see what you can find!
