On assignment with SNV in colourful Zambia, Southern Africa

Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. The capital city is Lusaka, located in the south-central part of the country. Originally inhabited by Khoisan peoples, the region which comprises modern Zambia was colonised during the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. After visits by European explorers in the eighteenth century, Zambia became the British colony of Northern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. For most of the colonial period, the country was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the British South Africa Company.
