Though it is a country that is known for expansive national parks, bird watching and the spectacular Victoria Falls and Zambezi River, surprisingly few travellers book flights to Zambia. Although tourism has grown in recent years in the country, most of the footfall is within a very small zone, which means that visitors travelling off the beaten track can easily experience the real lifestyle and meet its incredibly friendly people. Away from the capital, Lusaka, and the Victoria Falls, travellers are infrequently seen, so locals are keen to say hello, and often offer exceptional hospitality. The people who make up the population of Zambia come from a huge range of different tribes, with more than 70 official tribes counted and at least 20 languages spoken.
A large majority of tourists arriving from Zambia flights are extreme adventure-seekers looking for a taste of pure outdoor excitement. Whitewater rafting, canoeing, power boating, and even bungee jumping are all part of the tourism draw, and mostly situated around the Victoria Falls. In the past, most tourism at the Victoria Falls was on the Zimbabwean side, but recent troubles in that country has meant a huge boom on the northern, Zambian side. If you need a break from the rapids, head toward one of Zambia’s natural parks full of birds and wildlife.
