People Of Zambia

Traveling through Zambia was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. They have not much but are always happy, cheerful and friendly. Visiting a Sunday afternoon soccer match or waiting at the Zambezi river ferry, Zambia is such a vast and amazing country and offers so much. This country and its people grip your heart.
