MORE ABOUT ZAMBIA

Zambia is a huge country, shaped interestingly like a butterfly. It is home of the glorious Victorian Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Proud of its African heritage, it has had its political struggles. The people rose to gain independence from Britain in 1964, and it only became a multi-party democracy in 1991.

Many Zambians rely on traditional farming and for these people daily life can be a struggle, particularly when crops fail or illnesses spread. But is also has a strong mining industry, and its football team is fondly known as the “Copper Bullets” due to its heavy mining of this particular mineral.

Though English is its official language, it is a country full of up to 72 local dialects and/or languages, with Bemba being the most prevalent.
