Destination Zambia

For A True African Paradise

Home to the famed and iconic Victoria Falls, Zambia is a true African paradise. Grassy plains, a tropical climate, and majestic rivers characterise a country that is renowned for its natural beauty.

Interestingly, Zambia declared independence on the closing day of the 1964 Olympic Games, becoming the only nation ever to enter the Games as one country and leave it as another. This spirit of pride and industry is reflected in the country’s bustling cities, copper mining enterprises, and tourist-friendly economy.

Lusaka, Zambia’s capital city, offers tourists a wide selection of attractions and things to do. Among these are an elephant orphanage, reptile park, and the National Museum – as well as the Soweto Market, taking its name from Johannesburg’s iconic ‘second city’, where a vast array of foods, crafts and curios are available. 

Lusaka is also the ideal starting point for those wishing to experience the country’s game parks and wildlife heritage, whether this entails a charter to the country’s showcase Lower Zambezi National Park, or a trip to one of several exclusive private safari parks.

Zambia is a fascinating country to explore with a range of sights, attractions and activities to make a memorable experience. We recommend the Southern Sun Ridgeway for the ultimate Lusaka hotel experience or the StayEasy Lusaka for the more budget conscious traveller. Both hotels in Lusaka offer a full range of services and facilities and are ideally located to explore the city itself and to head out to explore Zambia’s most fascinating attractions.
