5 Reasons to Visit Zambia – The best of Zambia

Zambia is a country in the African continent that is rich in wildlife and offering so much of adventure to those who come seeking thrills. It is also one of the safest places to visit in Africa! Here are more reasons that will make you want to book your ticket right away.


Guided walking tours

If you are an adventurer and a wildlife lover, then the most amazing experience awaits you in Luangwa. Yes, this safari is on foot which means you will be walking in the wild savannas, with a guide of course but without the cover of a vehicle. Now, how about that! Your heart is going to be pumping hard as you walk through the grasslands with ferocious lions and tall giraffes just a few feet away from you. But don't worry, the wild will not harm you unless you harm the wild. Just revel in every moment of the experience.



One of the best reasons to visit Zambia would be canoeing. Whether you are a water sports enthusiast or not, canoeing down the Zambezi River is an experience like no other. Paddle across the calm waters of this beautiful body of water and enjoy the delights of tranquil nature around you. You'll be nudged gently by some of those rapids, but that's all part and parcel of this calm yet thrilling experience.


Victoria Falls

This is the most exhilarating experience of all as you will be witnessing the largest waterfall in the world! In the local language, it is called "Smoke that Thunders" and it isn't hard to see why. As the water cascades down with mighty force, the spray of water droplets is almost like smoke and the noise is nearly deafening. You could take a guided walking tour which can be organised by your local Livingstone hotel or visit the site independently. But the grandest way to view the entire falls is to take the helicopter ride which is called the "Flight of Angels".


Game Drives

This is obviously an experience that is not to be missed when in Zambia. You can inquire about the safari ride at hotels like Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara for more details on how to get things organized. On the ride, you will see animals such as crocodiles, hippos and you are guaranteed to see leopards too. The animals will be just a few feet away from the vehicle and this is really a one-of-a-kind experience! It is also a great place for bird watching with about 450 species of bird to be spotted.


Sunset cruises

The Zambezi River is a wonderful river for a sunset cruise. You can either opt for a small boat and enjoy an intimate experience or join a small crowd and hop on board a cruise boat which even runs over shallow waters. This will give you the chance to see what the creatures of the wild are up to during sunset. Wild African elephants, hippos and crocodiles are sure to be spotted along with several birds as well.
