Visit Zambia and immerse yourself in a relaxed African adventure. This country offers an amazing range of landscapes and is home to diverse linguistic population groups. One theme is common: the friendliness and peacefulness of Zambia's people. Make your base in some of the best hotels in Zambia and begin to explore.
View the spectacular Victoria Falls from the Zambian side, making the town of Livingstone your base, and wander around the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park—which means "The Smoke That Thunders"-- to listen to, see, and feel the water spray up close. Take a game-viewing and birding safari at one of the country's national parks, which include Kafue, South Luangwa, and Lower Zambezi parks. Zambia is famous for its lakes, so choose one of the Zambia hotels or lodges located on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in the north. While traveling, pop into the Copperbelt Museum, Ndola, to find out about the ancient and modern history of copper mining in the country; the museum shop has a good assortment of local souvenirs. Festivals are a favorite in this country of many cultures, and include first fruits festivals in February, a ritual of moving a whole village to dry ground when the plains flood (May), and masquerades with drama and dance every August. Choose Zambia hotel packages that offer activities with accommodation to take full advantage of all that's on offer.
Choosing Lusaka vacation packages lets you spend time in the capital city. Take your camera along to Lilayi Elephant Nursery and get shots of rescued orphan baby elephants while they play and eat; once they're weaned, the babies are reintroduced to the wild. Visit the Sunday Crafts Market at Arcades Mall for a huge variety of curio items at good prices. Or, drop in at Kabwata Cultural Village where you'll see crafters at work producing myriad goods with beads, wood, grasses and other materials, all for sale. Browse Travelocity for hotels in Lusaka, and if you bundle them with flights, you can save up to $537.
