Useful Information

Prepare for your visit to Nchila by bearing in mind the following:

  • Travel Insurance: It is your responsibility to provide your own travel insurance, and it is vital to have purchased insurance prior to your arrival in Zambia.
  • Medical Insurance: It is imperative that you have adequate medical insurance that includes evacuation in the event of an emergency.
  • Medication: Travelers carrying prescription medicine must carry a copy of their prescription at all times. As Zambia is a malarial zone, prophylactic medication is essential.
  • The African sun is harsh at most times of the year. Comfortable cotton clothing is recommended for the hot summer months, and it’s advisable to dress in layers to allow for cooler night temperatures. Pack durable clothing, preferably in dull or neutral colours. Sun screen and a hat are crucial.
