Zambia

Zambia is not the first country you would travel to when you are going to Africa. We think it should be though. The parks here are incredible, the people unspoiled and friendly and it’s not overrun by tourists like most of it’s neighbours. So, what are you waiting for? Book that ticket!

Is Zambia safe?

On the whole, Zambia is a safe country and locals are very welcoming and friendly towards visitors. However, it is still very poor and there’s a moderate risk of pick-pocketing and opportunistic theft in busy urban areas. As with all places. We never felt unsafe anywhere.
