Flights to Zambia

Zambia is a destination for nature lovers: this landlocked country is sparsely populated, meaning its overwhelming beauty has the space to shine through.

Most of Zambia’s population centres on Lusaka, the capital city. While Christianity is the official religion, many of the diverse ethnic groups and tribes practice their own forms of worship, performing ceremonies that can be at once spectacular and thought-provoking.

You'll probably find that you spend most of your time in the bush. There's a wealth of opportunities to pursue outdoor activities, many revolving around the three rivers that define the country: the Kafue, the Luangwa, and the Zambezi. Zambia is a tropical environment but it can get cold in the mountains.

Waterfalls are a major attraction in Zambia too. They can be a trek to reach but stunning when you finally arrive. Victoria Falls is the best known but Kalambo Falls, Kundalila Falls, Lumangwe Falls and Ngonye Falls are also popular destinations. If you're looking for even more adventure, a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls might be the ticket. Then again, you could always swing over Bakoka Gorge, abseil down the gorge or go kayaking or rafting in the Zambezi.

And then there's the wildlife. Zambia has some of the best safaris in the world; everything from lion walks and experiences with cheetahs to relaxing horse riding through the forest. You can look out for some of the 779 bird species native to the country, sit in a 4x4 for a guided safari, or simply walk around and see what you spot.

City guides

There’s no doubt Zambia’s capital is an off-the-tourist trail destination, but as one of Africa's fastest growing cities, there are many reasons to book a flight. With short stays and city breaks in Africa increasingly popular, it won't be long before Lusaka goes from being a might-visit to a must-visit destination.
