Legal Matters

Zambia’s legal code is based on Victorian England’s and is therefore very conservative, outlawing things such as male homosexuality. The buying, selling, possession and use of all recreational drugs is illegal.

Note that it is illegal to wear camouflage clothing. Also avoid taking photography of government buildings, bridges, train stations, Kariba Dam and other landmarks that suspicious officials may deem to be a security risk.
