The thing is, you don't even have to spend hundreds of bucks on a safari to see some wild and/or entertaining things in Zambia.
One of my favorite sights is a lady strolling down the road balancing a bulging suitcase on her head. Three people riding one bicycle. An old guy wearing a Yogi Bear t-shirt. There's no shortage of people-watching opportunities in a place with so darned many people.
The saddest sight of the day: the chocolate shelf at Shoprite, normally stocked with two brands and a dozen varieties, big bars and little ones. Today it was completely bare. Still no granola or tomato paste either, but they did have a nice new shipment of pears and apples and Windhoek beer. Sold!
