Wonderful Things to See in Zambia

Zambia is a landlocked country in southern Africa that is famous for rugged terrains and diverse wildlife. If you are thinking of zebras, elephants, and lions you can head to this wonderful country, book a guided tour, and enjoy sightseeing so many things.

Imagine waking up in the morning, the air is still cool and filled with buzzing and chirping cicadas and birds. You’re walking single file along a dusty hippo trail where your guide discreetly gives a signal to standstill for you to see a great view of the wildlife – yes! That is Zambia. So if you are planning to visit this country, just sit and relax as we take you to a virtual tour of this beautiful haven in southern Africa.

Set off on foot in South Luangwa

South Luangwa is a popular spot in Zambia that features pristine wilderness. If you want a place that will help you break free from the hustle bustle of the city life – then this could be your saving grace. Immerse yourself in the wilderness. Sharpen your senses. See some animal tracks in the sandy riverbeds, discover a plethora of edible plants and be amazed by how much information you can glean from ubiquitous piles of animal dung. Don’t worry; you won’t be going alone as every tour here is guided.

Drive along the Luangwa River

South Luangwa is Zambia’s best known park because of the concentration of game around the Luangwa River. In fact it is one of the densest in Africa. Although you cannot find some rhinos here, there is more than enough big game to fill up your camera.

Get up close with Victoria Falls

This captivating Victoria Falls is like paradise not only for the locals but for the visiting tourists as well. Nothing will ever prepare you for your first sight of the Zambezi River in full flood thundering over the 500-million liter drop of water per minute crashing into a deep rocky gorge. You can’t help but be mesmerized by the cloud of mist and rainbow-lit spray it creates as it falls graciously.

Witness the biggest mammal migration on the face of the planet

If you happen to visit Zambia around October to December, you will be able to witness 10 millions of straw-colored fruit bats flying in the sky for migration. We know you’re thinking of East Africa’s Great Wildebeest Migration but you’re wrong – no, that is not the largest mammal migration the world – but it’s Zambia’s migration of the straw-colored fruit bats.

Best Hotels in Norway

Many people are drawn to Norway because of the Northern Lights. But did you know the best places in Norway that have easy access to this beautiful phenomenon? In this blog, we are going to tell the best hotels in Norway that you can stay. 

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel

This is by far the most original Northern Lights hotel in Norway with the closest and easiest view of the famous lights. Unlike the usual hotels you see in many cities, Sorrisniva is a real igloo hotel. You will have to get used to camping and sleeping in the Norweigan way. But don’t worry; this igloo hotel has access to Wi-Fi. You would have to take a ferry to reach this hotel since it is situated at the island Senja, which is 50km from Harstad. When night falls, you can see the Northern Lights from your room window. 

Tromso Ice Domes Hotel

If you want to enjoy a beautiful display of the Northern Lights and stay away from the hustle bustle of the city, then you should stay at the Tromso Ice Domes Hotel. This is, by far, the best hotel that offers the best value for your money aside from letting you enjoy a magical view of the lights. Just be warned, when we say Ice Hotel, it is definitely an 800-meter ice hotel shaped like an igloo. It can only accommodate a limited amount of guests, which makes it more ideal for couples and a small group of travelers.

Radisson Blu Hotel

As you may know, Radisson Blu Hotel is a go-to choice for everybody who prefers a top-notch Nordic style accommodation. Compared to igloo hotels, Radisson Blu is modern and contemporary but you can still see the Northern Lights from the hotel. We just love how friendly the staff are in this hotel. You will love the ambiance and modern rooms. It is also an ideal hotel for families.

Scandic Grand Tromso

Do you love a supreme breakfast? Then you better stay at Scandic Grand in Tromso.  This hotel is one of the best hotels with top-notch quality in terms of food and service so every penny you spend here is definitely worth its value. Some of the best Northern Lights tours depart from here.
