What can an Expat Expect About Living in Zambia?

Living in Zambia means you’re a one-life adventurer! Get ready to live in a beautiful country of abundant natural wonders and of tremendous wildlife. Those who are willing to give up on their modern luxuries and necessities shall perfectly suit the Zambian lifestyle as despite the rich and organic panoramas it offers, poor infrastructure and poverty exists. There is limited selection of goods. These can be challenges faced by an expat.

Expats moving to Zambia with the right attitude are going to enjoy their stay. Expats of mostly British, Indians and South African origin have a footprint in Zambia. There are two kinds of expats in Zambia: those who only stay for three months and those who never want to go. Zambia has opportunities to make an expat disconnect from the world by mingling with local and friendly people.

The number of expats in Zambia varies around 120,000 and most of them are based in Lusaka, working in mining belts compared to the tourist board records who varies around 60,000 British tourists in a year. Expats working in Zambia have for the most of them been part of an exchange program from their country of origin, whether to work in the finance industry or in the IT sector. The mining and NGO industries also appeals to expats.
