Planning a visit to Zambia? Then read on to discover more about some of the best things along with some of musthe t-see attractions there, which will help you plan a truly memorable holiday.

1

Victoria Falls

Located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known also as Mosi-oa Tunya, the waterfall represents the world's largest sheet of freefalling water, though not the tallest or widest. On a clear day, visitors to the site will be able to see the mist generated by the gushing waters of the falls from up to 48 kilometres away. Those staying at a Livingstone hotel in Victoria Falls including the likes of Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara can reach this destination with relative ease as well.

Devil's Pool

Perched on the very edge of Victoria Falls, the Devil's Pool is a natural infinity rock-lined pool, where adventurous swimmers can swim to the edge of the largest waterfall in the world and observe the cascading waters thundering and crashing below. Do note that this attraction is best accessible via seasonal guided tours. This attraction is highly recommended for those in search of adrenaline-fueled adventure.

Livingstone Museum

More than an exhibition, the Livingstone Museum is dedicated to the first European to discover Zambia's famed waterfalls, the Victoria Falls, which was named after Queen Victoria. The museum also pays tribute to Zambian heritage. While being the oldest and largest museum in the country, this attraction houses important cultural and archaeological exhibits focused on Zambia's tribe along with a collection of letters and memorabilia of David Livingstone as well.

Lower Zambezi National Park

If you are keen to experience the real African bush, the Lower Zambezi National Park is your go-to spot. While it may not boast the same high number of fauna found in other parks in Zambia, its ruggedly beautiful and untouched wilderness of Zambia, more than makes up for this. The park is massive, with most of its inhabitants tending to congregate along the lower valley of the sanctuary. While notable lion and leopard populations can be found here, perhaps more impressive are its large herds of majestic jumbos that habitually gather along the fertile banks of the Chongwe River.

Mongu

A quiet and quaint town located along the floodplains of the winding Zambezi River, Mongu is the capital of the western province and is famed for its carpet weaving and expert basket. Visitors can browse local craft markets in the town, observe craftsmen weaving these unique wares, and possibly purchase beautiful items to take home. While here visitors can sample delicious local fruits including juicy and succulent mangoes and possibly even purchase freshly caught tiger fish, which Zambia is so famous for. Interestingly the township of Mongu is also home to the popular Nayuma Museum, which one can visit to take in a carefully curated showcasing of the handiwork of the locals. The museum also offers visitors insight into the traditions and culture of Zambia's Lozi people.
