City A-Z


Lusaka, capital of Zambia

Lusaka is one of the fastest growing cities in southern Africa and it serves as the capital of Zambia. Once a small village, located along Manda Hill, settlers from Europe helped to expand the city’s footprint over time. As of today, about 2 million people call this area home. A visit to Lusaka will often include stops at the Zintu Community Museum, the Politica Museum, and the Moore Pottery Factory. You will also want to include the Lusaka National Museum during...

The Republic of Zambia has some of the best game reserves and wildlife viewing opportunities that can be found on the African continent.

Covering a total surface area of 752,614 square kilometers, Zambia is a large country. It is slightly larger than Texas State in the USA or slightly larger than France and Belgium combined. Zambia is generally a high plateau averaging between 1,060 metres (3,500 ft) and 1,363 metres (4,500 ft) above sea level. This makes the country’s weather mild and pleasant.

With over 70 different ethnic groups, you’ll find festivals and ceremonies are held frequently throughout the year. During these traditional ceremonies the music and dance characterize quiet beauty, bustle, bounding life or brimming joy. The emphasis will vary from breathless acrobatic spectacle amid propulsive drumming to fine subtleties of sound and movement.

Zambia has 19 national parks and 34 game management areas. The parks alone cover 47,662 square kilometres. This accounts for 6% of Zambian land. Some game reserves are privately owned while the major ones are state controlled. Zambia has a wide variety and a large profusion of wildlife, both large and small and including over 741 bird species. Several national parks offer hundreds of kilometers of walking trails to explore.

Yet all of these wonderful aspects of Zambia are overshadowed by one specific location: Victoria Falls.

Called “Mosi-oa-Tunya” locally, or the “Smoke that Thunders,” Victoria Falls is often mentioned as one of the world’s greatest wonders. Located on the border with Zimbabwe, the combined width of 1,708m and height of 108m provides the largest volume of water that falls in the world. Only Iguazu Falls in Argentina and Brazil is somewhat comparable to this natural wonder. You’ll find many tours centrally feature this breathtaking sight.

A visit to Zambia must also include a safari. With the reserved park and reserve space in the country, you won’t find the same traffic jams around the animals as you do in some other countries. Self-driving is even an option for some safaris. Look for the best values, however, with an established safari operator.

Food in Zambia tends to revolve around maize. It’s served in various forms, but nshima is what you will usually find. It’s like a thick soup or porridge and then additional ingredients are added to create stews, which are called “relishes.” Ethnic restaurants are numerous and popular. Indian and Western meals can also be found in the larger cities.

Zambia is the place to be when there is a thirst for exploration that must be quenched. Take some time to plan your adventure and the rewards will be bountiful.

The weather in Zambia

Although Zambia lies in the tropics, the general height of the plateau ensures that the climate is seldom unpleasantly hot, except in the valleys. There are three seasons: the cool, dry winter season from May to September; the hot, dry season in October and November; and the rainy season, which is a little hotter, from December to April
