    Be prepared to do a bit of swimming in the current and put up with some rather aggressive small fish once you arrive in the Devil's Pool, but it's worth every minute of the adrenaline rush and all the tiny fish bites. The lifeguard did a great job of making us feel relatively safe despite swimming through fairly strong current and hanging off the edge of a waterfall. I'd recommend taking them up on their offer of water shoes if you don't have your own, as portions of the rocks on the way out are rather sharp.

    I had a guided tour at the museum. Entry is $5, and on top of that a tip for the guide. Museum is the most important in Zambia. It tells the story from the pre stoneage till current. It has a big collection from Dr Livingstone including clothes, books and letters, and tells his story. The guide was good and had many interesting anecdotes on what we saw. Well worth the tip. The museum has a nice gift shop with very fair prices.

    We stayed at the Chongwe River Camp for 3 days and I can’t speak highly enough of the camp, their staff and guides! Each morning we did a walking safari and most afternoons a safari in a Land-rover! One afternoon we did a canoe trip on a tributary of the Zambezi river and our guides very safely directed us to the edge and waited until a herd of elephants crossed in front of us! Also saw hippos!
    The camp is right on the river so we woke to seeing hippos, warthogs, Buffalo - fantastic!

    Fantastic experience. I've done a few "native village" visits around the world, and this was by far the best. The village is actually authentic and you get to actually see the way they live. They still retain a lot of their traditions and lifestyle.

    Firstly, one guide explained how it works with the chief, politics, history, etc. Then a different guide walked us around the village and explained their way of life. You get to meet a lot of villagers along the way and they are usually happy to chat and show you inside their homes.

    Then a group of young villagers did a traditional dance show for us. This part is optional and costs $23. Then we ended at the craft market, selling the usual range of souvenirs. Be warned that the sellers here are very pushy. But we still bought a few small things in order to support them.

    Both guides were excellent - their English was superb, they explained everything well and had a relaxed vibe. We tipped them both well (we did not have to pay an entry fee per se). It's also a good idea to bring things for the kids of the village - toys, souvenirs, sweets etc

    An amazing National Park where you have a great chance of spotting wild dogs and leopards, in addition to some lion prides that spent a good proportion of their time on our visit by creating a road block! There are a number of lodges in and around that provide accommodation at different price ranges. Access to the park is from 6 a.m. daily, and you are able to take your own 4x4 as long as you have left the park by 6 p.m. After this time you need to be in a lodge safari truck. Manageable to get around the park in a day, although some animals are more active at dawn, dusk and at night. If thinking of going there, check wet season timing as this may restrict access and viewing opportunities

    This was definitely a thrilling experience. Words still fail me on how to explain the free fall but once on it, it's downhill all the way! Will definitely do this again.
    Mulele was the one! Made sure our booking was done, time followed, picked up and sent us straight o he airport after.
    Do ask for him for a great service.

    Great opportunity to get anything and everything you would ever need for home, family, and friends to remember your trip. Purses. Backpacks. Carved animals. Stuffed animals. Beaded and paper mache necklaces. Bowls. Baskets. Paintings. So much more.

    Nearly everything you see will be in another stall. WALK THROUGH FIRST BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING!!! Know prices to know how to haggle. I never lost a sale at my price once saying no and walking away.

    This lovely little gallery is a hidden gem on Middleway Road in Lusaka. You wouldn't know from the exterior, but when you enter, you are greeted with walls of exquisite modern art. I was impressed by the playful nature of much of the art, and especially enjoyed sitting with a delicious cappuccino by an ancient jasmine bush. This gallery is associated with the stArt foundation which seems to do good works. The adjacent Jagoda gem gallery is also magnificent with its collection of quartz, tanzanite, aquamarine, tourmaline, garnet, emerald, amethyst, citrine, etc. I was reminded of the amazing mineral room at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, Just standing there in the peaceful gallery makes one ponder the tetrahedral structure of the silicate building block that forms so many gemstones. The entire space is a fantastic experience for art lovers in Lusaka.

    Beautiful river surrounded with forests on one side and villages on the other. It divides Zimbabwe and Zambia.

    I find the East Park Shopping Mall more appealing to shoppers now, since the new extension of the eastern wing, and the wide selection of shops, restaurants, and entertainment places.
    The mall is very spacious and airy. Good parking space and a good choice of shops and supermarkets. It's an all weather friendly places with lots going on - a real one stop shop mall.
    I highly recommend it.
