Formerly Northern Rhodesia, Zambia was part of an economic federation under British control including Malawi, formerly Nyasaland itself and then Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe today).

Zambia, unlike Zimbabwe was never really developed under British rule. Access, disease, poverty of this land did not really attracted settlers. Only the "Copper Belt", rich copper deposits on the border between Congo and Zambia, attracted some capital. Remember the showdown between Leopold II, King of the Belgians and the British crown about the border so controversial and so rich ... Independent since October 1964, the country sank into chaos. Politically stable in recent years, the country is trying to recover painfully.

Small and large enterprises are once again welcomed with open arms. Indeed, the country has a huge potential for tourism (lakes, national parks, mountains, rivers, stories, etc.), that few people realize. Zambia is here to be discovered by those looking for a change of scenery, a deep and true Africa, without lies. Trips tend to be based on the discovery of the bush and not specifically on wildlife, rarer, although different from that we can see for example in Zimbabwe. Walking and canoeing are traveling themes to promote in this country full of promise for the future.
