Hi all, We live in Zambia and as there is lack Indian relevant info about this land locked country ,I will post whatever I know about this country.This is our 4 th country in Africa and 6th if one considers short stays in some other countries where we lived for shorter duration of 3 months.Before this I have posted info about Uganda and South Africa. Zambia is on the southern end of Africa.Its known for the 2nd highest waterfall of the world called Victoria Falls at Livingstone.The capital is Lusaka .As far as I can make out from people of Indian origin ,Indians came here around 1925 onwards. Its a mining country but as usual the Indians came as traders or workers on Zambian railways. People, as in whole of Africa ,are very friendly and courteous.English is official language so no issues of communication.The cost of living for a family of 4 with school going kids is around $3000 which includes rent,school fee but can go up or down depending on your own personal choices about schools and places to live. Indian grocery items are easily available and are of good quality.Vegetables and fruits are available in local markets and malls and are almost organic. There are big brands like Edgar ,Forschini,Woolworth,Ackerman etc for clothes .Indian clothes ,gold ,cosmetic items can also be brought from entrepreneurial Indian ladies who deal in these.Indian beauty parlour are plenty. The schools are IB or Cambridge board and except for the American International or Lusaka International which have very high fee ,the others are affordable. There are plenty of Indian restaurants with good reasonable priced food.The malls in Lusaka show Indian Bollywood movies. Life is safe and as usual Indians live in compounds with security guards and electric fencing.All festivals are celebrated and there are Indian Temples . Mosquito as in southern part of Africa is a big problem here and as result Malaria is rampant but medicine and medical care is available but not very good specially in smaller towns. For now this is all I can think of............pls feel free to ask any queries you may have.I am not very regular on the forum now ,but as I started this thread will be checking it once a week .
