Zambia at a glance

Zambia is often left in the background behind its busier African neighbours: Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Namibia. What many don’t realise is that Zambia is brimming with adrenaline-fuelled adventures that are infused with a hearty dose of tranquillity and relaxation. It would be a shame to miss out on Luangwa National Park, the country's first reserve, which is teeming with antelopes, hippos and herds of elephants as well as lions, leopards and journeys of giraffes. Hop in a canoe along the Lower Zambezi and glide silently through papyrus and reeds to see the flora and fauna on the mighty riverbanks. If adventure with a splash of tranquillity is what you’re after, then Lake Tanganyika, and the surrounding valleys and mountains, is the place to start.
Grab your snorkel or head out with a dive instructor into the mirror-clear waters that fill the second-oldest freshwater lake in the world. Zambia’s capital, Lusaka, is a technological hub of development with a world-famous market selling clothes, produce and other goods and a national museum that will keep history enthusiasts busy for hours. Of course, no holiday to Zambia would be complete without a trip to the thundering waters of Victoria Falls. Whether you want to see the falls from the air during a spectacular helicopter flight (nicknamed the ‘Flight of Angels’) or from the water itself on a white-water rafting adventure or perched on the edge of the falls in Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls has something to keep even the most die-hard adrenaline junkie happy.
