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.
Explore hidden gems such as Parays Game Farm Wildlife Sanctuary and Parays Game Ranch. Step out of the city life by going to Lower Zambezi National Park and Kalimba Reptile Park. Spend the 17th (Tue) in the pleasant surroundings of Chaminuka Game Reserve. And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with The Lilayi Elephant Nursery, appreciate the history behind Freedom Statue, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jame Mosque, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Pakati Sunday Market.
