Zambia may not be at the top of your African safari destinations, but it should be. Its marshlands, assortment of wildlife and appealing landscapes put it in the running for one of the best African countries to travel to. Lochinvar National Park is the richest wetland area in Zambia. Many visit here for bird watching, since large populations of storks, pelicans and wattled cranes reside here. South Luangwa National Park is the nature area for seeing larger wildlife, including hippos, lions, leopards and elephants. In Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, there are plenty of things to see and do. Head to the Lusaka National Museum to learn about the history, and ethnography of the city, as well as the role of witchcraft in Lusaka. Visit Kabwata Cultural Village where you can view and buy indigenous arts and crafts from the locals and be entertained by traditional dancers. Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe is the world’s largest waterfall, Victoria Falls, and is a true wonder to see in person.
