Have a world-class safaris adventure in Zambia – For your diary of Africa

Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa that offers diverse tourist attractions. There is something for everyone in Zambia, from national parks to historical sites. Let’s explore the top tourist attractions in Zambia:

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders and is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are over a mile wide and drop 355 feet into the Zambezi River. Visitors can take a guided tour of the falls offered by a Livingstone hotel in Victoria Falls or go white-water rafting, bungee jumping, or zip-lining to experience the power and beauty of the falls up close.

South Luangwa National Park

South Luangwa National Park is one of Zambia’s premier wildlife reserves and is home to a wide variety of animals, including elephants, leopards, giraffes, and hippos. Visitors can take a safari tour through the park to see the wildlife up close or stay in one of the park’s luxurious lodges for an unforgettable wilderness experience.

 Livingstone Island

Livingstone Island is a small, rocky island located on the edge of Victoria Falls. Visitors staying at Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara can take a guided tour of the island and swim in the Devil’s Pool, a natural rock pool that sits on the edge of the falls. The experience is exhilarating and offers a unique perspective of the falls.

 Lusaka National Museum

The Lusaka National Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in Zambian history and culture. The museum features exhibits on the country’s pre-colonial history, traditional art and music, and the colonial era. Visitors can also see a collection of traditional weapons, household items, and clothing.

Incredible wildlife of Zambia – Animals you can see

The vast Luangwa Valley, the majestic Victoria Falls, and the untamed Zambezi River are all found in the landlocked nation of Zambia, along with more than a dozen National Parks and other important wildlife conservation programs. It should come as no surprise that adventurous travellers who seek unspoiled African nature flock to Zambia. A safari in Zambia is the best opportunity to get up close to the continent’s wildlife. Here are only seven amazing species you can see in their natural settings.

 African Elephants

African elephants, the largest species of elephant, can be found in Zambia’s river-rich national parks such as South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi, and Kafue. Elephants live in close matriarchal families, much like humans, making them one of the cutest large mammals. The family members are so close to one another that you seldom ever see them more than a few steps apart.

In Zambia’s grasslands, the king of the jungle spends his time hunting or relaxing. You have a decent chance of seeing one of these gorgeous cats in the southern parts of South Luangwa and Kafue National Park, which both contain sizable pride within a constrained territory. In Kafue, where they are known to be especially playful, you might even catch a pride of lions climbing trees if you’re lucky. You can arrange for a safari with your Livingstone hotel in Victoria Falls.

 White Rhinos

Due to poaching, white rhinos, the largest species of rhinoceros, were once uncommon in southern Africa. The Zambia Wildlife Authority did, however, transport four white rhinos from South Africa to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in 2010. Currently, a herd of over ten animals is closely guarded and lives close to Victoria Falls to stop poaching.


Giraffes, the world’s tallest mammals, graze on trees in the South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. The Thornycroft’s giraffe subspecies is only found in Zambia and has distinctive markings. About 20 giraffes make up a herd. You might even be lucky to spot a few at your resort such as Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara.
