Zambia Security Overview
There is a high risk of crime in Zambia. Foreign visitors in the region are particularly vulnerable to opportunistic attacks including smash-and-grabs and pickpocketing. Street gangs operate in certain parts of Lusaka and Livingstone and will use armed violence if necessary. Thieves typically focus their attention in areas that are heavily populated with western travelers and on occasions hotel rooms have been targeted for petty crime gains. Foreign nationals are typically at high risk due to perceived wealth, through smartphones and other valuables unconsciously on display.
The standard of driving in Zambia is very poor; the majority of drivers are uninsured and road conditions throughout the region, including Lusaka are dangerous. The local driving community ignore road traffic safety and laws. The roads are in poor condition and drivers travel at excessive speeds where road and vehicle conditions are unsafe. There is an extremely high risk of road traffic collisions (RTCs) due to the poor driving conditions, erratic driving behavior and inadequate road safety laws. A large portion of accidents occurs when traveling during the hours of darkness where visibility is greatly reduced.
Vehicles are stopped frequently on major roads by police officers through impromptu, and sometimes unauthorized roadblocks. Bribes are common and officers are known to fine individuals when no violations are present. Consider traveling in secure vehicles to reduce compromising personal security.
