OTHER ACTIVITIES IN ZAMBIA
Apart from the many adventure and adrenaline rush activities Zambia offers, there are many leisurely options as well. These include cruises on the upper Zambezi in multilevel cruise boats, stress relief and pampering at a spa, a day of golf or clay pigeon shooting, an insight into Zambia’s cultural heritage or even a trip to her hidden waterfalls.
Luxurious cruises are available on the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls. Experience the surrounding tranquillity, birdlife, emerging hippos and crocodiles and the glorious sunsets. There are breakfast, lunch or sunet cocktail cruises. Great for conferences and functions too.
Several lodges and hotels have spas for your relaxation. On offer are various massage therapies, including the traditional Zambian Ukuchina massage, manicures, pedicures and a range of specially designed facial treatments and anti-ageing treatments, as well as a sports massage for men. Available in Livingstone, South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi, Lusaka and Kapishya Hot Springs.
Get a taste of authentic Zambia on a tour to a local village. In Livingstone you can go on a cooking tour with a guide who will take you to the market to buy some ingredients and then on to a village where you can help prepare a meal in the traditional Zambian way. Chikuni Village and Toka Leya village are just outside Livingstone. Alternatively you can attend one of the annual traditional ceremonies. These ceremonies have great historic significance for the local, tribal people and are not designed for the tourist market. Get in touch with a local tour operator who will arrange a customized trip for you.
Northern Zambia is renowned for its waterfalls which are scattered throughout the area. Several operators will tailor-make a tour that takes you on a circuit visiting as many as possible – and there are more than 15 to choose from. Other highlights along the way can also be included like ancient caves, hot springs, an old English Manor House and Kasanka National Park.
Tourists and business travellers to Zambia are welcome to visit clubs for a round of Golf. Continue for a list of courses and contact details.
