In 2016, I enjoyed my second visit to this extraordinary country. It was amazing to see the difference of the economics in just 6 years. The people here are my favourite people in the world as they are so appreciative of everything and they always go out the way to help you with a smile on their face.
My cousins live in the capital city of Lusaka, so our journey began there. In Lusaka we visited many animal safaris, historic sites and orphanages where we gave our donations and took part in some fun movement workshops with the young children. As I focussed on catching up with family, we did a lot of everyday activities such as shopping and going to the gym to try out the country’s biggest dance craze – Zoka.
While in Zambia, I visited Livingstone, a town that sits on the Zimbabwean border. It took a gruelling 8 hour car journey over the bumpy roads but we decided to learn some of Nyanja to pass time. For the adventurous, Livingstone is the place to be – it has bungees, zip wires, kayaking and microlight rides galore. For the not so daring, a cruise on the river Zambezi might sound more appealing to catch a glimpse of some African elephants in their natural habit. But of course the main attraction here is Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall on the earth which qualifies it as one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.
