Lusaka, Zambia

— 19 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.
Step out of Lusaka with an excursion to Munda Wanga Environmental Park in Chilanga--about 32 minutes away. Spend the 15th (Fri) in the pleasant surroundings of Chaminuka Game Reserve. Next up on the itinerary: get outside with The Lilayi Elephant Nursery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of The Holy Cross Lusaka, buy something for everyone on your list at Eastpark Mall, and shop like a local with Kabwata Cultural Village.
