Zambia

If you want to see one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Zambia is the holiday destination for you. Luxurious lakes, rich rivers and waterfalls can all be admired either afar or up-close, perfect for budding explorers or families after a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The most iconic and well-known of them is easily Victoria Falls, Zambia’s top tourist hot spot. Otherwise known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or ‘The Smoke That Thunders,’ it is the largest waterfall in the world capped by mist-soaked rain forest. You can spot this mesmerising sight from up to 50km away, or why not get up close and personal with a rafting experience unlike any other?

If you are after an authentic African adventure, Zambia is full of vast wasteland and national parks housing majestic creatures and wildlife. Track the Big Five or even the unique shoebill viewable from the marshes of Lake Bangwelu, north of Kasanka National Park. Ideal for a family trip, make sure to visit between May and June for the best glimpse.

The capital city is full of tribal vibrancy and history with many museums and colonial buildings littering the skyline paying homage to its British heritage. For a city break with tropical flavours, Lusaka is an ideal honeymoon or couple’s getaway. Statues and monuments in the immediate area commemorates Zambia’s struggle for independence which it was finally granted in 1964. Ideal for families and couples wanting to spend a couple of days seeing how the locals live, Lusaka is brimming with Zambian culture complete with fantastic restaurants to dine in for an authentic taste of Africa.

Thanks to the copper industry, many African countries appear to be booming, and Zambia is no exception. Expect décor echoing this adorning your hotel room as you relax in paradise. Fantastic safaris and beautiful vistas ensure your stay is all you could ever hope for.
