Lusaka

— 7 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Parays Game Ranch and Freedom Statue. Step out of the city life by going to Chaminuka Game Reserve and Lusaka National Park. Spend the 16th (Mon) exploring nature at Lower Zambezi National Park. And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with The Lilayi Elephant Nursery, steep yourself in history at Chilenje House, get a taste of the local shopping with Jackal & Hide, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of The Holy Cross Lusaka.
