Visitors planning a trip to Zambia can get there by four modes: flight, land, rail, and boat. International travellers need to travel by air. Visitors from other African countries can travel via all modes.

Visitors from neighbouring countries such as South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Tanzania, and Malawi, can drive to Zambia via a number of border crossings between the countries. Travellers from Tanzania can also enjoy a scenic boat ride across Lake Tanganyika which ends at Mpulungu. And Zambia’s rail services are better suited for domestic travel.

International visitors can fly into Zambia, the main hubs being Lusaka and Livingstone. In addition, while booking your safari package, make sure it includes domestic transportation in Zambia.
