Zambia

Zambia’s economy has been traditionally based mainly on the copper mining industry, however recent times show that the government is pursuing an economic diversification initiative to decrease the nation’s economic dependency on other nations.

One of the safer countries in Africa, Zambia is a subtropical nation covered largely in beautiful wilderness and countryside. Victoria Falls, which straddle the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, are a popular destination for visitors to Zambia.

There are international schools in Zambia, and they are pricey and mostly based in Lusaka, the capital. Most people live in Lusaka, a bustling, urbanized city with great food, chaotic streets, and a wide mix of cultures. The country has a well-developed private and public healthcare system, which includes institutions with specialised healthcare.
