Known for its diverse wildlife and rugged landscapes, Zambia is a beautiful landlocked southern African country. When you travel to Zambia with Qatar Airways you’ll enjoy adventurous safaris and world-famous attractions like Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River.
The diversity of Zambian geography means that there’s something different to explore in these richly varied landscapes. You could be travelling in a little boat on high-speed waters near Victoria Falls one afternoon and the next morning exploring a jungle from the safety of a canoe. The great African rivers of Luangwa, Zambezi and Kafue all flow through the country and give it an undeniable scenic appeal to visitors and residents alike.
Zambia is above all the definitive African safari destination. Some of the great national parks of Africa are here and organised safaris are a must if you want to see the country’s wildlife in all its glory. The vast Kafue National Park, second biggest in Africa, and Lower Zambezi National Park are hugely popular and are home to a variety of environments and unspoiled nature. Simply sit back, enjoy the ride and capture fabulous photos of the ‘Big Five’ game animals, remarkable African sunsets and great memories of a once-in-a-lifetime holiday.
All roads in Zambia end up eventually in Lusaka, the capital, and this city is the real heart of the country today. It’s a rich and exciting mixture of dusty streets, traditional African markets and high-rise blocks. Lusaka has a real cosmopolitan atmosphere and houses plenty of good restaurants and hotels.
The National Museum in Lusaka has a great collection of Zambian sculpture and paintings, along with archaeological exhibits that trace the region’s long and eventful history. The Elephant Orphanage in the south of town is worth a visit, and also the Kalimba Reptile Park just outside Lusaka where you can see these imposing animals in their natural habitat. All of this is waiting to be discovered during your trip when you fly to Zambia with Qatar Airways.
