The landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse African wildlife has just reopened its borders for tourism. With its many parks and safari areas, Zambia is now welcoming all tourists back.
Who Can Travel to Zambia?
All countries. It’s a good news that Zambia is now once again allowing all travelers from all countries to visit and explore its wonders.
Are There Any Testing and/or Quarantine
