The Republic of Zambia is a land-locked country in Southern Africa. The terrain here mostly comprises high plateaus, gushing rivers and beautiful hills and mountains. It is also graced by the presence of Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world!

Travel to Zambia is not easy but the destination is more than worth its reward. It is Africa, uncut. Most of the country is still not majorly affected by tourism, so if you want to get away from the crowds on an offbeat holiday, this is the place to go. Victoria Falls, Zambia’s most popular attraction is not only famous for its breath-taking beauty but also for the nearby forests where you can find diverse flora and fauna. South Luangwa National Park is the most famous Park of the country, known for its diverse fauna and wide lodging options. See elephants, leopards, impalas and pukus make their way nonchalantly across the marshes, woodlands and plains of the Park. Lower Zambezi National Park is also a popular place of interest dotted with camps and lodges. Exploration here is mainly done by boats and large elephant herds can be seen near the river. If you’re in the mood for some fishing or relaxation on a boat, head to Lake Kariba.

The capital city of Lusaka is a contrast of traditional and modern architecture. It’s not much of a tourist hub, more like a convenient transit spot. There are some lively markets to be explored and nightlife can be enjoyed over the weekends. 

Safety Note: Refrain from travelling to the border areas with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola and Mozambique as there is a high risk of encountering live landmines here. Crime is a concern in Lusaka. Tourists are advised to exercise necessary caution, consult a travel expert, and check safety warnings issued by their respective countries before planning their trip.
