On the Road in Zambia



Three weeks of Summer 2013, I spent in the gorgeous continent of Africa. Seeing as it was where my Dad was born, it'd been a family holiday planned for as long as I can remember!
  We spent the first week in Zambia. I suppose every country is huge compared to England, but nonetheless, it never fails to amaze me. This vastness is why we decided to drive from place to place.
We were based in Lusaka, the capital, and by 'based', I mean we stayed two nights in a hotel there, then drove to Livingstone, staying in another hotel for one night, to visit the Victoria Falls, then it was back to Lusaka for another night, before heading to Ndola, where my Dad grew up and where we stayed the night in a lodge before finally heading back to Lusaka for one more night.
Zambia is huuge man! Traveling between these cities was an average of five hours! That's longer than it takes to drive from London to Wales! - you see why I say everywhere seems huge compared to here?
Anyway, this obviously meant that a lot of time was spent on the road. I've always thought road tripping is the best way to see a country, from quaint villages, quirky rest stops and street vendors selling all kinds of handmade items, to the most breathtaking scenery...
It gave me a quick glimpse into the lives of locals, some glimpses peaked my curiosity, others pulled at my heartstrings and most simply rendered me speechless.
So I've put together some of my favourite pictures taken whilst on the road in Zambia...

  2. What awesome photos! They're giving me the travel bug *sigh* Lovely to learn a bit more about you, Vanisha, I'd so love to check out Zambia one day, it looks so free and untainted, and I will definitely keep a lookout for Damson :) and yes, I know what you mean, England does seem rather tiny when you go abroad lol, it's funny that you don't really think about it until you're out of the country, or at least I never did!
