A rich history of different cultures that date all the way back to the first human fossil ever discovered in Africa, in 1921, proves that early humans were present in Zambia at least 200 000 years ago. Followed by the Khoisan about 36 000 years ago, to European colonisation, four different kingdoms and many religions, Zambia has a plethora of landmarks, museums and history to share.

From ancient cave paintings to the hustle and bustle of modern Lusaka, the grandeur of Shiwa Ng’andu to the infamous slave tree – Zambia’s monuments and heritage sites are as diverse as its history.
