The Republic of Zambia is a land locked nation in southern Africa. The capital city is Lusaka. I know what your thinking, I can't believe I am learning something new during the A to Z challenge of 2013. Regardless, my travels to Lusaka included a trip to a near by lodge to have a day at the Safari.
It was an amazing trip. I was able to go horseback riding through the park and on a jeep safari. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. We took advantage of the one day option, however, there are cabins to rent and places to sleep. I think this area is a little less expensive than the big safaris in South Africa.
Other fun facts about the country, the population is about 80% literate. With all my travels in Africa, this is a high number. Education is free until the 7th grade.
Well, this is the end of another A to Z Challenge. I want to thank everyone who stopped by and left comments. The frequency of the posts will decline, however, Sunshine and I love to explore, so I will continue to make suggestions and other comments. I have found several new pages for myself to follow.
