Livingstone — 6 nights

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
When in Livingstone, make a side trip to see Batoka Gorge in Kazungula, approximately Kazungula away. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Victoria Falls, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, surround yourself with nature on The Explorer Club, and stroll through Livingstone Crocodile Park.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Livingstone is an approximately 17-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Livingstone. Traveling from Amsterdam in April, expect nights in Livingstone to be much warmer, around 21°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) to allow time to fly to Lusaka.

There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lilayi Elephant Nursery, see the interesting displays at Zambia National Museum, look for gifts at Manda Hill, and get a taste of the local shopping with 37D Gallery.

Air Conditioned State
Landlocked Zambia remains best known, a little counter intuitively perhaps, for its bodies of water. Three large rivers run through the country, with most of the big urban areas and smaller settlements sticking close to waterways and the valleys they've cut over millennia. Holidays in Zambia are adventurous affairs, with real planning required to get the most out of the country--foreign visitors find the infrastructure lacking and familiar comforts practically nonexistent. Traditional villages remain the most culturally rewarding places to visit in Zambia, while superlative natural features include animal-rich national parks and picturesque waterfalls.
