10 Reasons Why You Should Visit Zambia

Do you know the best 10 Reasons why you should visit Zambia? As for me, like anybody else, the first reason on my list is safety; and Zambia has it, peace and unity!


Zambia is a unique country with 73 ethnic groups, but strangely enough, the country has experienced unprecedented unity and peace!

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) Zambia is one of the safest nations in Africa. This in itself should inspire confidence in you as a traveller.

Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This is found in Livingstone, the town known as the “Adventure Capital”. The gigantic water falls is 1,188 meters in width and occupies 1,500 cubic meters of water.

Epic Bat Migration

Can you imagine seeing millions of bats in the range of about 8 million to 10 million, settling on one hectare of land lured by the swampy forests and abundant wild fruits? This is what you will experience at Kasanka National Park

The concentration of the bats is very dense, up to hundreds of bats per square metre. When they are busy clinging on tree branches, the snakes and crocodiles are always waiting to devour the unlucky bats which fall below the trees!

Extraordinary Festivals

The Zambian calendar is peppered with festivals. In fact there are over 20 annual traditional ceremonies in Zambia. Among the major ones are the annual ceremony of the first crop observed by the Ngoni people, called the N'cwala, and a war celebration of the Lunda people, called Umutomboko.

There is also the annual royal crossing of the Zambezi River by the Lozi people, called the kuomboka. This one is the most impressive event. Kuomboka means “to get out of water” and that’s exactly what the festival celebrates: the Lozi king’s journey from floodplain to higher, drier ground is quite a spectacle to watch: the king travels on a ceremonial barge adorned with a giant model elephant, while revellers celebrate with music and dance.

Largest Man-Made Lake In The World

Lake Kariba is the largest man-made lake in the world. Kariba came into being when a dam was built across the Zambezi River in the Fifties. In addition to providing hydroelectric power, the dam created a home to various animals in the flooded valley, which is now home to healthy populations of hippos, Nile crocodiles and game fish. Would you like to enjoy a cruise on this man-made lake in the world? Check into one of the Floating Hotels that are found on Lake Kariba.
