From fishing on the shores of Lake Tanganyika and swimming in Devil’s Pool to fine dining at the exclusive Elephant Cafe — home to a herd of hand-reared elephants — there’s no shortage of things to do in Zambia.
Explorers looking for a road trip across the wilderness will love Kafue, home to an astonishing range of antelope, leopards, cheetahs and wild dogs and almost 500 species of birds, while the Luangwa National Park proves a huge hit with honeymooners, with its spa treatments and private pools. Cosy up and share a bottle of wine as the sun sets and the nearby giraffe hum.
Thrill-seekers looking for an adventure will be right at home in Livingstone, home to Victoria Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the world, where among more relaxing sunset and sunrise boat trips, you can enjoy adrenaline-pumping activities like bungee-jumping, white-water rafting and scenic flights over the Falls.

Destinations — Where in Zambia Can You Go?
Wondering where to go? When you need a well-earned break from the daily grind and a welcome change of scenery, they don’t get more different than Zambia. Wherever you visit, from Nsumbu National Park in the north to Livingstone in the south of the country, there are tourist attractions aplenty, and you’ll never run out of things to see or do.
South Luangwa National Park
In the valley of the Luangwa River in eastern Zambia lie the North and South Luangwa National Parks, world-renowned havens of wildlife. Things to do in Luangwa include going on walks and game drives, where you can spot species exclusive to this region. Visit Luangwa during the “emerald season” (from December to March) and you can cruise down the river and spot the summer migrants, including waders, flocks of herons, egrets, storks and more. Luangwa is also home to the big five, where you’ll see lions and leopards in all their majestic glory.
Lower Zambezi National Park
For holiday-goers looking for breathtaking scenery and wildlife in abundance but conscious about their carbon footprint, you’ll struggle to find a more perfect place to visit in Zambia than Zambezi. The Lower Zambezi National Park is the first carbon-neutral park in the world, and its tall leadwood, ebonies, acacias and fig trees provide a spectacular view.
Livingstone – Victoria Falls
Located in the south of Zambia, this former capital is a huge attraction and one you won’t want to leave off your travel list. Home to the famous Victoria Falls, a huge 100m waterfall, Livingstone has plenty to offer to intrepid adrenaline junkies and relaxing holiday-seekers alike. Enjoy fine dining at its best with a meal at the exclusive Elephant Cafe, where hand-reared elephants roam within view, or head to Devil’s Pool and swim at the very edge of the waterfall. One of the most majestic sights in Livingstone is Victoria Falls at night.
Kafue National Park
Zambia’s largest national park — and one of the largest in the world — lies in Kafue, where adventurers can explore 22,400 square kilometres of terrain. That’s the size of a small country – Wales, to be exact! It’s a truly diverse part of Zambia, with the landscape ranging from flat, open grasslands to woodland and huge granite hills, and you can take your pick when it comes to spotting wildlife. The flat grasslands are the perfect place to see buffalo, zebra and wildebeest, and Kafue is also one of the best places to visit in Zambia to see lions, cheetahs and wild dogs.
Liuwa, Kasanka and Lake Tanganyika
Experience Zambia’s “best-kept secret” by heading to the remote plains of Liuwa, home to lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, zebras and the luxury King Lewanika Lodge. It’s a true birder’s paradise, with around 334 species seen here.
Holiday-goers after an authentic experience will love Kasanka, which what it lacks in variety, it more than makes up for in exclusivity. Lodges offer unrivalled tranquillity and spectacular birdwatching.
