Places to visit outside Lusaka

Livingstone is around 6 hours drive from Lusaka and has a considerable amount to do for those of an energetic nature. Aside from visiting the famous Victoria falls, canoeing, jet boating, river surfing, white water rafting, bungee jumping and abseiling are available. There are many hotels and lodges available on both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side of the river.

Closer to Lusaka (approximately 3 hours drive) is Lake Kariba. This is a popular weekend destination. Hotels, chalets and lodges are available on both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side of the lake. Houseboats are also popular and the fishing in the area is good. Swimming is not recommended on the lake due to the large crocodile population.

There are many game parks and lodges throughout Zambia. Zambia boasts abundant wildlife and is one of the best countries in Southern Africa for game viewing. The parks are not commercial and therefore the visitor sees “The Real Africa”.

South Luangwa National Park is probably the most well known game viewing destination. It is considered to be one of the most abundantly stocked game reserves in Africa. The park is approximately 10 hours drive from Lusaka and 4 wheel drive vehicles are definitely needed. There are also commercial flights available to Mfuwe, the airport for the park. The lodge’s available range from basic to luxury and from self-catering to full board. Camping is also available in the park.

Closer to Lusaka is the Lower Zambezi. This is only 3 hours drive from Lusaka and is very popular for those who wish to game view and fish on the Zambezi river.
