Zambia Mini Guide

Why Zambia?
It’s got lots of amazing safari parks, with widely varying ecosystems so you’ll never get bored of looking at the animals and the countryside. You can marvel at Victoria Falls, track gorillas in dense jungle or watch lion, elephant and more in the world’s biggest canyon; the Great Rift Valley. It’s a relatively safe country to visit and as long as you exercise common sense you should encounter no difficulties. The capital Lusaka, is of interest as a place to stay for a day or so before heading out to explore the natural wonders of the country.

Lusaka City

Getting There
The only direct flights to Zambia from the UK go to Kenneth Kaunda Airport in Lusaka. BA operate a weekly flight to the capital from London Heathrow whilst you can also fly from Amsterdam with KLM. Once in Lusaka, local airlines can connect you with regional airports, the most popular being Livingstone Airport – the entry point for the Victoria Falls. At any of the airports it’s best to hire a car to get around rather than rely on public transport or taxis.

What to See in Zambia
You’ll get nowhere without a hire car but collecting a pre-booked hire car from Lusaka Airport or from car hire Livingstone Airport will open up a whole new world to you. The capital has the National Museum which details the struggle for independence and a little history on the British era in Zambia.

National Park in Zambia

Outside of the capital, the attractions are the national parks which include West Lunga, a densely forested park and the Lower Zambezi, a park almost untouched by tourism. The highlight of any trip to Zambia has to be the Victoria Falls which, surprisingly, are twice as tall as Niagara and twice as wide. They are known locally as the ‘Smoke That Thunders’ for the spray that is produced through which the sound of the falls is heard.
