Livingstone — 3 nights

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Livingstone Museum and Wayiwayi Art Studio and Gallery. Step off the beaten path and head to Helicopter Tours and Gorge Swing. The adventure continues: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and examine the collection at Railway Museum.

To find maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read our Livingstone online itinerary planner.

Lusaka — 7 nights

Tourism in Lusaka, Zambia's commercial and government center, thrives mostly due to its central location and well-connected airport, making it a gateway for exploring the country's numerous nature reserves and national parks.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of The Holy Cross Lusaka and Chilenje House. Discover out-of-the-way places like Lilayi Elephant Nursery and Kapishya Hot Springs. Take a break from Lusaka with a short trip to Munda Wanga Environmental Park in Chilanga, about 32 minutes away. Spend the 30th (Fri) in the pleasant surroundings of Chaminuka Game Reserve. Spend the 31st (Sat) exploring nature at Lower Zambezi National Park. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Zambia National Museum, stroll through Kalimba Reptile Park, explore the striking landscape of Lusaka National Park, and browse the different shops at Eastpark Mall.

Plan my Lusaka trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Landlocked Zambia remains best known, a little counter intuitively perhaps, for its bodies of water. Three large rivers run through the country, with most of the big urban areas and smaller settlements sticking close to waterways and the valleys they've cut over millennia. Holidays in Zambia are adventurous affairs, with real planning required to get the most out of the country--foreign visitors find the infrastructure lacking and familiar comforts practically nonexistent. Traditional villages remain the most culturally rewarding places to visit in Zambia, while superlative natural features include animal-rich national parks and picturesque waterfalls.
