Exciting as the prospect of rafting one of the world’s most famous rivers is, there’s still plenty of other reasons to visit Zambia, including the opportunity to experience the power of Victoria Falls.

It’s a wild trip through the African savanna, almost like taking a safari without leaving the train. You’ll also want to experience some of Zambia’s unique culture, and you'll really want to know this country’s version of the Chicken Dance before you go.
