Cheap Flights to Zambia

Flight route prices based on searches on Cheapflights within the last 3 days, monthly prices based on aggregated historical data.

Though it is a country that is known for expansive national parks, bird watching and the spectacular Victoria Falls and Zambezi River, surprisingly few travellers book flights to Zambia. Although tourism has grown in recent years in the country, most of the footfall is within a very small zone, which means that holidaymakers travelling off the beaten track can easily experience the real lifestyle and meet its incredibly friendly people. Away from the capital, Lusaka, and the Victoria Falls, travellers are infrequently seen, so locals are keen to say hello, and often offer exceptional hospitality. The people who make up the population of Zambia come from a huge range of different tribes, with more than 70 official tribes counted and at least 20 languages spoken.

A large majority of tourists arriving from Zambia flights are extreme adventure-seekers looking for a taste of pure outdoor excitement. Whitewater rafting, canoeing, power boating, and even bungee jumping are all part of the tourism draw, and mostly situated around the Vic Falls. In the past, most tourism at the Victoria Falls was on the Zimbabwean side, but recent troubles in that country has meant a huge boom on the northern, Zambian side. If you need a break from the rapids, head toward one of Zambia’s natural parks full of birds and wildlife.

Getting around Zambia

Airwaves Zambia flies to Zambia’s most popular tourist destinations including the Luangwa Valley, Livingstone and nearby Victoria Falls, The Lower Zambezi, and The Northern Circuits. Zambian Airways also flies to the tourist draws: Livingstone, Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa National Park. Proflight offers schedule and charter flights around the country. There are also several charter airlines.

There are good bus services within Zambia, and there is also a fairly decent rail network. Zambia has three main train lines: from Livingstone to Lusaka, Lusaka to the Copperbelt and from Kapiri Mposhi to the north.

While Zambia has almost 40,000km (25,000 miles) of roads, about 8,000km (5,000 miles) are tarred and a further 8,000km (5,000 miles) are all-weather gravel. The rest are dirt roads, which may become impassable during the rainy season. There are several car-rental companies in Lusaka and it is also possible to hire a chauffeur-driven car.
