Livingstone — 5 nights

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.
Livingstone Museum and The National Art Gallery, Livingstone are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at The Explorer Club, explore and take pictures at Gorge Swing, admire the sheer force of Victoria Falls, and take in the exciting artwork at Wayiwayi Art Studio and Gallery.

To find where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, use the Livingstone vacation website.

Lusaka — 8 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.

Step out of Lusaka with an excursion to Munda Wanga Environmental Park in Chilanga--about 32 minutes away. Spend the 31st (Mon) in the pleasant surroundings of Chaminuka Game Reserve. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lilayi Elephant Nursery, hike along Southern Africa Freedom Trail, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Ignatius church, and look for gifts at Kabwata Cultural Village.

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.
