    Getting to know Lusaka with like-minded people and having other expats to navigate daily life in Zambia is a great relief.

Welcome to Our Network of Expatriates in Zambia!

Hello, and a warm welcome to the InterNations Zambia expat community. Here at InterNations, we offer a community for expats in Zambia, and elsewhere around the world. By gathering the knowledge of our friendly members in one place, we can answer all the questions you have about life as an expat in Zambia. Whether you're moving to Lusaka, Kitwe, or elsewhere, the chances are you need to gather information that'll make your integration easier. Common questions here at InterNations include, "what is the healthcare like?" and "will I be able to enjoy the luxuries I access at home?". While you may find that healthcare isn't consistent throughout Zambia, our members will help you find ways to make sure you and your family are covered, and they can point you in the direction of imported goods.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Bahrain or Kuwait.

Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Zambia

With diverse wildlife, Victoria Falls, and cities that are always developing, Zambia can act as both a strain and a paradise for expats. Although you're unlikely to enjoy a life that is similar to the one you enjoy at home, you'll soon find that Zambia expats experience a lot of perks. The atmosphere is always vibrant, the locals treasure family life, and their approach to living is laidback. While everything is done at a slower pace, you'll find that the cost of living is greatly reduced in the major cities, unless you want a lot of foreign imports. Many expats move to Lusaka, which is Zambia's business hub. Away from the capital city, the country relies heavily on agriculture. For those who do live in the capital, the private schools follow the Zambian curriculum and offer a first-rate education.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Costa Rica or Italy, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Some of our members also organize groups dedicated to their favorite hobbies and interests. If you don't find one that strikes your fancy, then feel free to start your own!
