Here is a list of the top 8 things to do in Zambia, Africa:
GUIDED WALKING SAFARIS IN SOUTH LUANGWA :
If you want to experience a wildlife sanctuary with all your senses, then a walking safari becomes the best way of doing so. On any given walking safari, your adrenalin will be racing, and your senses heightened. You will be able to come across features such as lion feet and groups of wildlife patronizing the sanctuary. This is the best destination for birders in Zambia. South Luangwa National Park boasts of more than 400 different bird species. The most common birds include Red-faced yellow-billed storks, avian, pelicans, and the great white egrets.
CANOEING ON THE ZAMBEZI RIVER :
When you canoe along the Zambezi River, you will experience a wide range of wildlife from the comfort of your boat. The activity will be more enthralling when you come across the several rapids and falls caused by the river tributaries. This is one of the best activities to engage in when you visit Zambia. In other words, it provides you with a magical combination of leisurely paddling with the seasonal experience of exciting rapids, leading to maximal satisfaction.
EXPERIENCE THE MIGHTY VICTORIA FALLS :
This is one of the most famous Zambia experiences you can have. There are various ways through which you can experience what is otherwise termed as ‘Smoke that Thunders.’ It is interesting to note that some of the most outstanding views of Victoria Falls are found on the Zambian side of the gorge. The decision on how you can visit the falls solely depends on you as you can either take a guided walking safari tour or visit the Falls independently. Nevertheless, you can also enjoy the general overview impression of the Falls by using a helicopter.
GAME DRIVES ALONG LUANGWA RIVER :
By undertaking this activity, you will experience varied and rich escarpments since the Luangwa River meanders through the extensive rift valley. Some of the most common wildlife you are likely to see include crocodiles, hippo, and leopards. For birders, this activity offers you an opportunity to see up to 450 different bird species.
SUNSET CRUISES ON THE ZAMBEZI RIVER :
It is a magical experience to watch the African sun as it sets over the Zambezi River. You have options of having an intimate encounter by either joining the sunset boat cruise or using a smaller boat. During such navigations, you will see different animals such as hippo, elephants, and different bird species on a sunset cruise.
NIGHT DRIVES IN ZAMBIA NATIONAL PARKS :
What you witness in a game drive during the day may be less exciting compared to night drives. You are likely to experience a wider array of nocturnal animals such as the prowl, hyenas, honey-badgers, porcupines, mongooses, civets, and genets. Additionally, you will be likely to experience lions and leopards doing other things other than sleeping. They hunt mostly at night, and you may have the opportunity to see a kill. The birders are not excluded because they are likely to see owls, dikkops, and nightjars.
EXPERIENCE THE THRILL OF DEVIL’S POOL :
This activity deserves a better heading because it offers you an incomparable swimming experience. The best time to visit Devil’s Pool is from late September when the Livingstone Island water levels are extremely low. You can therefore take a dip on the edge of the falls among the rocks which form a kind of bathing pool.
VISIT LIVINGSTON MUSEUM :
This is the largest and the oldest museum in Zambia. Some of its most common exhibits include possessions of David Livingstone, instruments, and photos. Within the museum, there are model villages of various ethnic groups which offer you an opportunity to understand Zambian culture.
