Lusaka — 3 nights

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.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Mon): take in the exciting artwork at Lusaka Collective, then stroll through Lilayi Elephant Nursery, then shop like a local with 37D Gallery, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of The Holy Cross Lusaka. On your second day here, tour the pleasant surroundings at Chaminuka Game Reserve.

Air Conditioned State
Landlocked Zambia remains best known, a little counter intuitively perhaps, for its bodies of water. Three large rivers run through the country, with most of the big urban areas and smaller settlements sticking close to waterways and the valleys they've cut over millennia. Holidays in Zambia are adventurous affairs, with real planning required to get the most out of the country--foreign visitors find the infrastructure lacking and familiar comforts practically nonexistent. Traditional villages remain the most culturally rewarding places to visit in Zambia, while superlative natural features include animal-rich national parks and picturesque waterfalls.
