Doctors and Medical Care

Edit This

While healthcare in Africa can be sometimes be a scary experience, there are some good clinics around.  In Lusaka, the US embassy and a good majority of the expat community go to Corpmed at the north end of Cairo Road in town.  I believe malaria tests run about USD15.

Languages

Edit This

In Zambia, there are many languages that are spoken.  Though the official national language is English, there are seven major languages that are also recognized by the government.  They are Bemba, Nyanja, Tonga, Lozi, Kaonde, Lunda and Luvale.  While most people in the large cities such as the capital Lusaka will speak some English, attempting to speak a local language is received warmly.  In Lusaka, the most commonly spoken languages are Nyanja and Bemba.
