Guide to Zambia

Zambia is the real Africa .. a country renowned for its beauty, diversity, culture and friendliness.

Zambia is a land-locked country occupying an area similar to the UK and France combined (750,000 square kilometres). It lies in central Africa between 9 and 18 degrees south of the equator and takes its name from the Zambezi River which rises in the northwest corner of the country and forms most of its southern boundary.

Zambia has three definable seasons: cool and dry from May to August, hot and dry from September to November, and warm and wet during the rainy season from December to April. Average rainfall is 95cm per year and temperatures vary between 10 and 32 degrees C (50 and 90 degrees F). In the cool season the nights are often chilly enough for a jacket. The high altitude (1,000 1,350 metres above sea level) tempers the humidity so that the climate is generally pleasant.

The People
Zambia has a population of about 14 million, with an annual growth rate of 3%. It is a very young country with nearly half the population being under 15 years old. There are 73 language groups amongst the indigenous people, each with its own cultural identity. However, English is the official language and is spoken by the majority of Zambians in urban areas.
