What to see in Zambia

Zambia Attractions


Zambia is a really exciting tourist destination which introduces foreigners to some of the best natural attractions and adventurous activities that Africa has to offer. Tourism is concentrated around a few major attractions in the country: Lake Kariba attracts many visitors and is a hub for fishing, boating, wildlife safaris and watersports; and Livingstone is the gateway to the wonders of Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River. Zambia also boasts some good wildlife reserves, including the vast Kafue National Park, which is the second largest nature reserve in Africa and contains a wealth of wildlife. The lack of infrastructure in the country can be problematic for travellers as the poor roads make accessing parts of the country very difficult, but Livingstone and the capital city, Lusaka, are both fairly well developed. Lusaka is not a popular tourist destination in itself but many travellers pass through the sprawling city and it is quite an experience; the markets and nightlife can be exciting and fun, and there are a number of small museums to visit. Zambia is accessible to both budget travellers and those in search of luxury which is a big bonus: Livingstone in particular has both great backpackers and incredible luxury hotels.
