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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Chaminuka Game Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of The Holy Cross Lusaka, look for gifts at Kabwata Cultural Village, and witness a stunning natural landmark at Kapishya Hot Springs.

Tourism in Livingstone, a town nestled on the Zimbabwean border, thrives largely thanks to the nearby Victoria Falls.

There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Victoria Falls, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, don't miss a visit to Gorge Swing, and look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.
