Culture


With a total population of 13 million, Zambia is sparsely populated with more than 70 ethnic groups, many of them Bantu-speaking. Zambia’s ethnic diversity results in rich and colourful cultures, each upheld and celebrated uniquely in remembrance of their ancestral age.

The country’s ethnic diversity results in over 30 traditional ceremonies occurring annually in different parts of the country.
