Spending spree
It may not be the shopping that lures most visitors to Zambia. But whether you’re after gifts and souvenirs, or simply in need of a little retail therapy, the country has a treat or two in store for the canny shopper. Mary Earnshaw finds that a good roadside bargain hunt is the perfect pick-me-up for the weary traveller.

Dog devotee Merlith McKendrick visited Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park on a unique safari dedicated to this enigmatic animal. Her diary reveals how she got on.

Kieron Humphrey set off to investigate – and to see for himself just what the park still has to offer.
