Conducting business in Zambia is relatively safe in the major cities, such as Lusaka and the game reserve areas. However, traveling at night is not recommended due to the possibility of crime. Even during the day there is a risk of becoming a victim of a crime such as a robbery, bag snatching, and pickpocketing. These types of incidents happen in downtown areas and especially at bus and train terminals.

To mitigate the risk, business travelers should consider using secure ground transport and executive protection officers while visiting the region.
