Top 11 attractions in Zambia

Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya)

UNESCO World Heritage Site Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya), on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, represents the largest sheet of waterfalls in the world, though not the widest or tallest. Dr. David Livingston named the falls after the Queen of England, but the Batonga people had already named them Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders). On a clear day, you can see the mist generated by the falls from up to 30 miles (48 kilometers) away.More

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

Encompassing the Zambian side of mighty Victoria Falls—one of the seven wonders of the natural world—Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is best known for the thundering waterfall at its heart. Yet, views of falls are not all the park has to offer. Wildlife, scenery, and adventure opportunities fill the 41-square-mile (66-square-kilometer) park.More

Devil's Pool

Experience a natural infinity pool with a dip in Devil’s Pool. Perched on the edge of Victoria Falls, the rock-lined pool lets you swim to the rim of one of the world’s largest waterfalls and watch the cascade thundering below. Accessible on seasonal guided tours, the cliff-side pool is recommended for adrenaline junkies.More

Zambezi River

The Zambezi River is not only one of the most powerful and picturesque rivers in Africa—it’s also one of the most important. The lifeblood of southern Africa, the Zambezi passes through four countries, including Zambia, and borders two others. Travelers flock here to embark on riverside safaris, see the Zambezi plunge over Victoria Falls, and raft world-renowned white-water rapids.More

Lower Zambezi National Park

Sitting on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, Lower Zambezi National Park is home to herds of elephants, lions, leopards, crocs, and hippos. While river safaris are one of the highlights of the remote wilderness, the park’s lodges are a close second, with river-front lodges, bush camps, and tree houses to choose from.More

Livingstone Museum

The Livingstone Museum is more than just an exhibition dedicated to the first European to discover Victoria Falls, it is also a tribute to Zambian heritage. The largest and oldest museum in Zambia, the museum holds important archeological and cultural exhibits focused on local tribes, as well as collections of explorer David Livingstone’s letters and memorabiliaMore

South Luangwa National Park

The southernmost of four national parks in the Luangwa River valley in eastern Zambia, South Luangwa National Park is one of the best places to see leopards in southern Africa. A world-renowned wildlife haven, the park is known for walking safaris, night drives, and the abundance of birds during the warm and wet rainy season.More

Batoka Gorge

The incredible power of Victoria Falls is on full display in Batoka Gorge–the waters surge and eddy to create thrilling opportunities for white-water rafting and stunning scenery for hikers. The Zambezi River created the gorge, which runs along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, providing an environment bursting with flora and fauna.More

Lake Kariba

For a landlocked country, Zambia has some surprisingly beautiful beaches. Home to the largest artificial lake in the world—so big you can’t even see the other side—Lake Kariba was created by damming the Zambezi River in the 1950s. Bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, the lake is now known for wildlife safaris, epic fishing, and great views.More


The capital of Zambia’s remote Western Province, Mongu sits close to the Angolan border. It stands as the gateway to Liuwa Plain National Park, about 46 miles (75 kilometers) northwest of the city, but is perhaps best known for its Kuomboka ceremony. Held each April, the celebration marks the movement of the Lozi royal court from Lealui to Limulunga.More
Livingstone Island

Livingstone Island

Set in the Zambezi River just above Victoria Falls, Livingstone Island is the place where 18th-century explorer David Livingstone first spotted what is now known as the largest sheet of falling water in the world. You can view the falls from this same unique vantage point on a guided tour that melds history, sightseeing, and adrenaline.More
