About Zambia

Zambia, officially known as the Republic of Zambia, is a country in Southern Africa. Having once been a colony of the United Kingdom, it gained independence and shares borders with Tanzania, Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, Malawi, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.

Named after the Zambezi River, Zambia's capital city is Lusaka. The country has a variety of languages spoken, like Nyanja, Lunda, Bemba, Lozi, and Tonga, besides different languages and dialects that can be encountered in rural areas.

With a population of around 19 million, the majority consists of ethnic groups like Bantu and Bemba, while Rotse and Tonga form the rest. Although European immigrants in Zambia are limited in number, they can be found mainly in the larger cities. Almost the entire population of Zambia practices Christianity, with a minimal Muslim presence. The most common Christian denomination is Protestantism.

Most of the population resides in the capital city, Lusaka, and other major urban centers. Copper production and export form a significant part of Zambia's economy, making it a global hub for copper trade. Minerals like cobalt and agriculture, including products like cotton, tobacco, and maize, are also some of the major sources of income. Sugar production is another important commercial activity.

Zambia experiences three distinct seasons: a hot and dry season (mid-August to mid-November), a wet rainy season (mid-November to April), and a cool dry season (May to mid-August). The average temperature fluctuates between 15 and 33 degrees Celsius throughout the year, making it suitable for year-round visits. However, if you're interested in capturing the breathtaking natural scenery, the best time to visit is during the fall.

Despite economic challenges, Zambia is known for its colorful festivals almost year-round. Ncwala in February and Umutomboko in July are among the most famous and vibrant celebrations in Zambia.

Maize, one of the most cultivated crops, is a staple ingredient in Zambian cuisine. It has been used to make a type of porridge often consumed with chicken or fish. In poorer areas, dried fish, okra, and cabbage are consumed mostly.

Finding clean drinking water can be challenging in many regions, so it's advisable to carry clean drinking water with you when exploring, as this is one of the common difficulties faced by visitors.
