Zambia (previously known as Northern Rhodesia up to independence on 24 October 1964) is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa and the Zambians are proud of that title. It is a land linked country that is bordered by 8 other countries, check the map for details.
There are 72 officials languages although there are 4 main languages and generally one could make the following distribution:
- North: Bemba
- South: Tonga
- West: Losi
- East: Nyanja/ Chewa
But…don’t worry English is the official language and all official communication is in English. Almost everyone you will meet is able to speak decent Zambian English only when you go more rural you will find more difficulties but I guess that is one of the beauties of traveling.
