Livingstone, Zambia, August 26, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / While visiting popular landmarks and destinations provides a sense of belonging, it’s often those off the beaten paths that provide authentic and memorable experiences of discovery. Such a journey awaits in Zambia, a country of diverse wildlife, stunning landscapes and incredible natural wonders. From waking up to the sight of zebras to raising a glass at sunset to a picturesque waterfall backdrop, here are the best things to do and see in Zambia.
Witness the Grandeur of The Fall
Described by the Kololo tribe as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ or the smoke that thunders, Victoria Falls is Zambia’s most popular attraction and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This majestic waterfall forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe where columns of spray can be seen from miles away. Experience the finest views of the fall across the Knife-edge Bridge, a vantage point that overlooks the Eastern Cataract, the Main Falls, and the Boiling Pot where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge.
Take It Slow and Just Breathe
Zambia’s five massive lakes and plentiful rivers boast the largest water resources in Africa. Put your mind on mute and enjoy the serene atmosphere of the mighty Zambezi River which offers excellent tiger fishing and fly fishing.
Feel the Adrenaline Rush
For those who prefer a rush of excitement, Livingstone has emerged as an extreme sports capital with some of the best things to do in Zambia, rivaling Swakopmund in Namibia and Jinja in Uganda. Experience white water rafting in one of the top destinations in the world with deep channels and high-water volumes. The rapids at Batoka Gorge are the perfect setting for jet boarding and bungee jumping.
Soar Above the Beauty Below
Being completely open air means microlights provide unparalleled experience of flying naturally. With space for one passenger and a pilot, you’re guaranteed an exhilarating and unique experience complimented by breathtaking views of Victoria Falls and the fascinating gorge that the Zambezi River has carved into the surrounding landscape.
Ground Yourself in Tranquil Nature
Whether you’re a novice or an experienced horse rider, a horseback ride takes you along the trails within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Journey through the scenic African Bushveld with excellent bird watching and the possibility of spotting wildlife.
