Voice of Travelers to Zambia

Zambia Rocks!

Onboard Qatar Airways, I experienced a fantastic flight to Zambia. From the time I handed over my ticket to the time I stepped foot on the tarmac in Zambia, I felt at home. En route to Zambia, I was assisted by friendly and courteous staff. It really helped that the ticket I bought was with Qatar. The next time I travel to countries other than Zambia, I will definitely choose Qatar Airways. It helps that my travel agent suggested that I go for a Qatar Airways ticket. When I first indicated my intention to travel to Zambia, he gave me many options to choose from, but told me that the slightly more expensive ticket from Qatar Airways is always worth the price. So I bought a Qatar Airways ticket.

In Zambia I Found The Adventure of a Lifetime

I never planned on going to Zambia, but my friends bought a ticket for me. Korean Air sent me a ticket that introduced me to the very exciting world of Zambia. With its vast national parks and wildlife, I instantly fell in love with Zambia. The safari adventures on offer really wowed me. Zambia is one country where you can commune with nature, and be one with the natural environment. I had the adventure of a lifetime in Zambia after I purchased a ticket through Korean Air. After a week I still couldn't get enough of Zambia, so I decided to extend my stay and rebooked my ticket.

Zambia is My Favorite Place on Earth

My father loved Zambia and the adventures it gave him, so whenever he had a chance, he would purchase a travel ticket from his favorite travel agency, and this would also include a ticket for his family. So from a very young age, I was immersed in the wonderful country known as Zambia. I was, and is still am, amazed by the sights and sounds it offers. I especially liked the safari adventures and the untamed wildlife of Zambia. I felt like I was getting a taste of paradise in Zambia. I always look forward to my dad purchasing another travel ticket to Zambia, and I never get tired of visiting this veritable heaven on earth. I guess my vacation trips in the future will always include, whenever possible, a visit to this wonderful place called Zambia. Next year, we will fly via Qatar Airways as we already bought our flight tickets for another Zambia adventure.
