If you’re interested in exploring the heart of Africa, there’s no better place to start than Zambia. In Zambia, you can see some of the most beautiful national parks in the continent. Here are three places you shouldn’t miss when in Zambia.

Victoria Falls

You can’t go to Zambia and not see the incredible Victoria Falls in person. They’re located on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The waterfall is over a mile long and 355 feet high. Make sure to go to the Knife-edge Bridge and enjoy the incredible view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls.


Lusaka is the capital of Zambia and the economic center of the country. Over 2 million people live there and it’s a great place to visit if you want to explore the urban Zambian culture. You can taste delicious food in many restaurants and explore the outskirts of the city for a taste of the local wildlife.

Kafue National Park

The most beautiful national park in Zambia is located in the central part of the country. This is the place where you can see antelopes, zebras, cheetah, wildebeests, and some of the biggest crocodiles in southern Africa.
