Best Zambia Tourist Attractions
With the motto "Discover the real Africa", Zambia is untamed Africa at it's finest with some of the largest and remote national parks on the planet, never mind in Africa. Zambia is all about wildlife, birding and extraordinary safari experiences ranging from game drives to walking safaris all the way through to canoeing and boating safaris.
At Uyaphi.com, we absolutely love the country and what she has to offer, with the best attractions ranging from the Basunga plains and the Kafue River, walking the banks of the Luangwa River to sunset cruises of the Zambezi River all the way through to the yearly Kasanka Bat migration. Zambia, simply put, is amazing and, in all honesty, should be on everyone's bucket list when travelling to Africa.
Below we feature the most popular and top attractions the country has to offer, which are equal to the Serengeti, Kruger National Park and the Okavango Delta.
The question has to be asked: why not Zambia for your African safari?
