Zambia: Things to See and Do

Zambia: Things to See and Do

story by: House of Travel

Named after the famous Victorian missionary explorer, Dr David Livingstone, this little town has become popular due to the close proximity to Victoria Falls. There is a good selection of hotels lining the Zambezi River. From Livingstone there are a wide range of adventure activities and local tours on offer. This is a great place to stopover before heading onto Botswana or exploring Zambia further.

The Zambian side of Victoria Falls is sometimes forgotten, but it provides an entirely different experience to the Zimbabwean side. Walk down a steep track to the base of the falls or cross a footbridge through swirling clouds of spray for a close-up at Knife Edge point. During the dry season, the Zambian side can have little or no water flow over the edge, but creates a unique view of the canyon below. We recommend booking a day tour to the Zimbabwe side of the falls so you can experience both sides. 

South Luangwa National Park is regarded as one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa with a wide variety of wildlife including elephant, hippo, buffalo, black rhino, zebra, leopard and lion. Vegetation ranges from dense woodland to open grassy plains, and oxbow lagoons act as natural waterholes. The park is closed during the rainy season of December to April. 

Lusaka is situated in southern Zambia and is one of the fastest-growing cities in central Africa. It is a sprawling, unplanned metropolis with many multi-storey buildings, high-walled suburbs and busy shanty towns. The city is surprisingly rich in galleries featuring local artists. The Zintu Community Museum exhibits traditional arts and crafts. A major attraction in the capital is the bustling open-air Kamwala Market.
