For most it is hard to resist an African adventure, and at Lets Talk Travel we are ready to help you fulfil your dream as we offer you exciting opportunities to visit Zambia, which is situated in southern central Africa with Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, Angola to the west and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north as close neighbours.
Typical of the African experience the visitor can expect to see diverse wildlife, various parks and enjoy safari opportunities. Maybe the country’s best-known landmark is the famed Victoria Falls which is referred to as The Smoke that Thunders by the locals. May through October is the peak season for visitors when wildlife viewing opportunities can be best enjoyed.
National parks are popular destinations and the South Luangwa National Park, also the North Luangwa National Park, the Kafue National Park and the Kasanka all attract thousands of visitors every season. Wildlife includes hippo, crocodiles, elephants, giraffes and different bird species. Bird watching and admiring Africa’s wild animals are only two of the activities that visitors enjoy.
Ample opportunity to partake of adventure sports and boat trips on the big Zambezi River ensures that there is something for everybody. The town of Livingstone with its museum that offers great information on archaeological finds and local history is a popular destination for many. Or visit the Victoria Falls, the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and get a taste of what the area is like. The town itself reminds of colonial times as seen in the architecture, and locals sell sculptures and hand-made jewellery at the markets. If you’re adventurous you may wish to take part in some white-river rafting and kayaking, also bungee jumping.
Whether you stay in one of the comfortable, upscale lodges all over the country, or in a smaller unit in either a town or city, or in one of a choice of hostels, you are assured of comfortable surrounds and many popular amenities nearby.
Shop in the capital Lusaka where you are offered great choices at the Lusaka City Market before you start your trip into the countryside to experience a bit of the heart of Africa. After dark, marvel at the sky and its millions of bright stars as you sit and gaze into your fire and listen to the night sounds.
Getting to Zambia is easy: there are four international airports with the Kenneth Kaunda Airport in Lusaka the busiest for travellers to and from the country. Lets Talk Travel can help you plan your African holiday to Zambia right from the start to your last flight home again.
